Build a life you love. Become a part of one of New Zealand & Australia’s most iconic bakery café businesses.

Established in 1989 in Australia, Muffin Break is one of New Zealand’s most loved bakery cafés. Owned by Foodco group, the brand has been serving local communities for over three decades.

We believe that the ‘Good Goes In’ across everything we do. From our extensive product range and award-winning signature coffee blend, to our comprehensive training and support for our franchisees, our philosophy is about producing the very best.

We’re always fabulously fresh

Nothing beats the smell and taste of freshly made coffee. Every cup of coffee we serve is made from freshly roasted Arabica beans. We constantly review our equipment to ensure it is producing the highest quality coffee. Every Muffin break has its own kitchen and our products are baked fresh throughout the day.

We’re wholly wholesome

Our food is good for the soul. It’s simple, homely and delicious. We search for ingredients that are both satisfying and delicious.

We’re people pleasers

It’s the most fundamental part of our recipe – we make products that people love! We’ve been in business long enough to know that fads come and go. While we always adapt and try new things, we stick to the principle of making wholesome food that we know people love. Muffin Break is a nostalgic brand for many and a fundamental part of the Australian community.

We give back to our community

We’re proud of that community connection. We’re a ‘local’ national brand and each store engages thoroughly with the area in which it operates. Our franchisees are passionate about supporting local schools, sports clubs, businesses or charities.
