Fast Lane is now open in Rockhampton!

8 May 2015

Our Fast Lane family has grown!!! A new franchise is now open in Rockhampton under the very capable and lovely Patti Mules!!!

We are so excited about our new addition. Below is part of a story the appeared in The Morning Bulletin in Rockhampton:

"Coffee connoisseurs in the Rockhampton region will be treated to a new cafe experience when Queensland's first The Fast Lane Drive Thru Coffee franchise opens its doors, or rather windows, this month.

From its store in the old McCafferty's site at 7-13 Linnett St, The Fast Lane Drive Thru Coffee, popular in Dubbo in NSW, will provide drive-through service to anyone chasing a coffee fix, from time-poor customers on their way to work or busy mums and dads needing a caffeine hit on the way to school drop-off.

The Fast Lane Drive Thru KARMA PROJECT

28 January 2014

The Fast Lane Drive Thru Coffee believes in good karma. That’s why we have started our KARMA PROJECT. 

There are many local charity groups that do great work, so every 3 months we would like to create awareness and also raise funds for one such group! We would like to donate $250 to the charity, as well as placing collection tins at each Fast Lane site and welcome any donations from our lovely customers to go with ours. All money raised will be presented to the charity at the end of the 3 month period. Doing good, creates good.

I recently had the opportunity to visit a cool new business concept in the prosperous rural town of Dubbo, in western NSW. The Fast Lane is a concept designed by Paula Anderson, a mum and entrepreneur who saw the opportunity to fuel the busy commuters with well made espresso coffee and travel snacks.

The Fast Lane has developed over the last five years into a professionally run coffee business that is now looking to expand. Paula purchased a coffee roaster and is now producing fresh coffee for the two drive-throughs and not only does she sell coffee “to go” through to businesses, people can also buy fresh coffee for home.
