Xpresso Delight is something of a staple in Australia and New Zealand, with its pay-per-cup business model allowing offices and businesses to remain financially savvy while getting their caffeine fix.

The brand has recently begun expansion to the U.S., and this will only continue with the latest multi-unit agreement announced, which will see five new Xpresso Delight franchises develop across Chicago.

Derek Gilroy is the newest franchisee of the brand, and as part of the five franchises, he plans to bring the service to 250 offices in the city over the next three to five years.

“This is perfect for Chicago,” said Gilroy. “There’s plenty of options for office coffee, but nothing like Xpresso Delight. If offices are content drinking pre-ground coffee out of plastic capsules, there’s plenty of different companies to work with. If they want fresh ground beans for each cup, and lattes and cappuccinos made with fresh milk with the touch of a button, then Xpresso Delight is the best solution out there, hands down.”

Founded in 2003, Xpresso Delight has been changing the game for coffee lovers. By pairing its proprietary coffee blend with a high-end Swiss espresso machine, that automatically makes lattes, cappuccinos, and other milk-based espresso drinks, clients can receive the finest coffee at affordable price. The blend is delivered straight from roaster to the office, as part of a weekly service that companies can pay for on a pay-per-cup basis, with zero upfront cost.

“Making the move from the East Coast to the epicenter of the Midwest is huge for Xpresso Delight,” said Nigell Lee, CEO of Xpresso Delight. “We’ve always known that Chicago is a tremendous opportunity for us, and we’re excited to partner with Derek, a savvy business owner that knows his way around the Chicago office landscape.”

Derek Gilroy has deep roots in the Chicago market, and has spent more than 20 years as both a clerk and trader at the Chicago Board of Trade. He deliberated and researched for several years when he decided he wanted to invest in a franchise, before settling on Xpresso Delight as the best brand to suit his aims and ambition.

These five new franchises will add to Xpresso Delight’s portfolio of 200 worldwide, and Gilroy is the ninth franchisee for the brand in the U.S. 23 franchises in total are in development in the States, and 18 of these were awarded in the last year; making Xpresso Delight a brand to watch as we enter the new year.
