Become a franchisee

Make your coffee shop dream come true

If you opened your own café, it’d always be in a good, bustling location. You’d hand-make fresh treats from the highest-quality ingredients. You’d give people little happy moments in their day, in the form of treats and friendly service.

Franchising with Arnolds involves all of this.

An Arnolds franchise is the opportunity of a lifetime to make your coffee shop dream come true. We offer you the keys to success: a good location, much-loved products and all the advantages of a well-known chain.

You are the master of your own coffee shop, meaning you are completely and independently responsible for all business operations. This also applies to the initial investment. We won’t abandon you though: we’ll train you and support you constantly as you write your own success story.

And success stories at Arnolds have been long. Many franchisees have reached their fourth five-year franchise term. In other words, they have been with us almost from the beginning. This, if anything, speaks to our franchisees’ satisfaction. In addition, Arnolds has won the Finnish Franchising Chain of the Year Award in 1999 and 2011.

There is no requirement for previous experience as an entrepreneur. If you have experience from the F&B sector, that’s great. The most important thing is your attitude and ability to cooperate and work with others.

International Franchising

After more than twenty years of success in the Finnish market, our first international café opened in Tokyo, Japan, in May 2013.

We’ve built a very strong brand in Finland and created a unique, tried and tested business model that is easy to replicate globally.

We’re interested in enterprising and motivated Master Franchise partners to grow with us internationally.

If you’d like to join us in making people’s days a little more delicious, please get in touch by filling in the online enquiry form.

We are a member of the Finnish Franchising Association.
