University of Auckland Retail Café

Alliance has operated the Shaky Isles retail café at the University of Auckland, under licence since May 2016. Focusing on great coffee, nutritious cabinet food and cook-to-order menus, the café has rapidly become known as a go-to place for students and staff on campus. A conscious decision was made to employ as many university students as possible within the operation, and currently there are close to 40 casual students employed in a variety of roles. Our offering has been expanded to include a coffee cart in the Engineering school, which operates five days a week.
