About us

The Coffee Mob has been providing coffee carts in Melbourne for over 20 years, and is Australia’s largest coffee cart provider.

With over 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Managing Director Ben Ward has worked tirelessly to establish long and trusted relationships with Melbourne’s leading hotels, conference centres, catering groups and major sporting events to establish The Coffee Mob as a trusted and professional service provider. 

These relationships are the key to our success.

Environmental impact

We know that coffee wastage is one of the many contributors to unnecessary waste in Victoria, particularly around discarded disposable coffee cups and grind wastage.

We have worked with our partners and event organisers to minimise the impact of this waste, and will continue to improve our waste procedures to minimise the impact on the environment.

We welcome the use of reusable cups from companies such as Keep Cup, Frank Green and other leading providers at any event we cater to.
