About

Peoples Coffee Global Limited (Peoples Coffee)

We need your help so we can:

¨    Increase roasting capacity from 2500kg per week to 8500kg per week (that’s 283,000 coffees!)

 

¨    In FY21 to FY22 we increased our supermarket revenue by 800% by launching into 20 grocery stores nationwide. With our increased capacity we plan to exponentially grow our supermarket distribution in the next three years, and get our coffee into 360+ Pak n Save, New World, Countdown and independent grocers in New Zealand.

 

To do this, we need to:

 

¨    Lease an additional coffee roaster, capable of roasting an additional 6000kgs per week

¨    Purchase 1- 2 new coffee bagging machines

¨    Purchase 1-2 high-capacity coffee grinders 

¨    Increase our sales team to build nationwide distribution

¨    Work with external marketing & design agencies to develop a robust marketing strategy and grow sales.

 

Our Vision for Growth

Mansfield Street

A place for our community to call home and enjoy coffee from the source.

 

Ever since our beloved 5kg Probat roaster moved out of 12a Constable Street to make way for growth, we have dreamt of creating a space for our customers to peek behind the curtain and experience the inner workings of a coffee roastery. Mansfield Street comes equipped with 70sqm +/- of potential hospitality space waiting to be utilised.

 

We envision a space where our community can drop in for a coffee and light-food offering, discover our back-catalogue of unique coffees and browse coffee-brewing apparatus to their heart's content. With global tourism returning to our shores, we see an opportunity for a comprehensive ‘Bean to Cup’ experience.

 

Guests will be able to live and breathe the roastery experience Monday through Friday, while the weekends offer a more intimate opportunity to run courses and events from ‘sample roasting’ to hands-on barista training on our commercial espresso set-up.

 

All good things take time, but the addition of Mansfield Street could grow our bricks-and-mortar business by approximately 15% in Year One, and by up to 30% from Year Two onwards, translating to roughly $150,000 - $300,000+ of additional revenue, while minimising overheads through existing factory operation lease costs.

 

 

Production Capacity

We intend to lease auto-bagging machinery & high capacity coffee grinders to increase our production efficiency. Our 5kg and 22kg Probat coffee roasters have a combined capacity of approximately 2,500kg +/- per week, operating 9 hours daily, Monday through Friday. 

 

Based on our forecasts for the next 18 months, we believe that we can meet roasting requirements with our existing coffee roasters. Should we achieve the minimum target of $250,000 we intend to lease a larger capacity roaster in line with growing demand. A third 45kg-60kg coffee roaster would lift total production capacity by 6,000kg to an estimated 8,500kg +/- per week. 

We currently have three semi-automatic bagging machines and two commercial coffee grinders in operation. We intend to roll out a further two bagging machines and one to two high-capacity coffee grinders over the next 12 to 18 months in line with supermarket growth.

 

Sales

Over the past 18 years, we have built a strong network of wholesale partners, with stockists ranging from Wanaka to Auckland. As cafe operators ourselves, we have a strong knowledge base to support both new and existing customers, from consulting on cafe layouts to general business guidance.

 

Over the past 12 months, we have worked closely with 20 supermarkets across the Greater Wellington region, growing shelf presence and investing in our production line, in preparation for growth.

 

Over this time we have seen our revenues through this channel increase over 800% from FY21 to FY23. With a further 360+ New World, Pak’n’Save and Countdown stores across the country, not to mention the local independent grocers, we plan to grow our supermarket distribution exponentially over the next three years. Our minimum equity raise target will enable us to increase our sales force and build stronger regional engagement and expand our supermarket distribution.

 

 

 

Marketing & Design

We have been a grass-roots company since day dot, reaching where we are today with little to no marketing resources and largely growing through the word of mouth of our loyal customer community. While this has been successful in our younger years, we want to take our brand to the national stage and become a household name, and to put a bag of Peoples Coffee on every kitchen bench, in every pantry.

 

If we raise our minimum target, we will be able to work with external marketing and design agencies to activate our brand through the supermarket sales channel. Raising our maximum will enable us to hire a Creative Director and fund the development of an In-house marketing team to elevate our story and build reach nationwide.

Governance & Advisory Board

Matt Lamason - Founder & Director

Hailing from a farming background in Dannevirke, Matt plied his trade as a barista in Wellington while studying the polarities of Politics and Psychology at Victoria University. A long-time lover of food and great hospitality, Matt turned down his first graduate job as a PR man in the Whips Office at Parliament to pursue a dream of making a difference in global trade via coffee. A year later Peoples Coffee was born, named from the print of his favourite Volcom t-shirt.

 

After eight years at the helm of Peoples, Matt stepped aside to nurture three beautiful humans, and went on to found other startups such as Trade School Industries - a trust focused on creating meaningful jobs for ex-prisoners from Arohata Women’s prison -  and Kapiti Biodiesel - a shipping container lab that transformed waste cooking oil into biodiesel. Now based on the Kāpiti coast, Matt is passionate about seeing others’ dreams become a reality through life coaching, and living closer to the elements.

 

James Bushell - Advisor

James Bushell is a leading strategist in incorporating ethics and sustainability into commercial models. He has worked across a range of industries, scales and countries, applying data-driven and systems-thinking approaches to create impactful solutions.

 

He has had governance and executive experience in developing, emerging and developed economies, so understands the challenges that come with different environments and the practicalities of actually getting things done. James cares deeply about people and is driven to create a more equitable and sustainable world.

 

Richard Shirtcliffe - Advisor 

A veteran CMO, CEO and Director, Richard has been founding, building, and transforming purpose-driven brands in NZ, the UK and USA for over 30 years, across multiple categories.

 

Whilst claiming that his greatest achievements are his kids, consistently avant-garde hairstyle and an especially head-turning stall at the 1983 Hatepe tombola, he’s perhaps better known for having led globally successful local brands phil&teds, Mountain Buggy, Mokopuna merino, and Prorack; for growing Tuatara Brewing into NZ’s largest independent craft brewery as CEO, and subsequently as CEO of Coffee Supreme International, and noho.co.

 

A longtime Peoples Coffee fanboy, Richard has a passion for ‘un-mucking the world’, and now devotes his time to helping build disruptive 'triple bottom line' brands like WildClean.com, the world’s first plastic and carbon-negative cleaning co.

 

 

Risks & Mitigations

Risk

Description

Mitigation

Increased competition

New Zealand has a saturated coffee scene; there is the risk that we see more competitors enter the industry.

With a combination of our product quality, 18 years of trade, a wealth of experience within our team and the increased production capacity from our Mansfield HQ, we will be able to remain relevant and continue to compete.

Key personnel

The potential to lose key personnel

Following the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns and isolation periods, we have automated many areas of our supply chain, from order processing to packing design and have been training two or more staff to fulfil key roles within our company; notably coffee roasting.

Profitability

The risk of not operating profitably

We are diversifying our sales channels to build resilience against potential external factors such as Covid-19 lockdowns. We are working closely with our advisors and accountants to maintain appropriate margins across all revenue lines. We also aim to keep tight controls over our costs.

Cashflow

The risk of not having sufficient working capital to meet our obligations due to either a downturn in sales or delayed payments from our customers.

We have been working closely with our new banking partner BNZ to establish appropriate capital products to meet our growth strategies. We will continue to chase up any late-paying customers and adjust payment terms accordingly.

Key production equipment

The risk of breakdowns with our coffee roasting equipment.

Post-raise, we plan to acquire a larger capacity coffee roaster to add to our fleet. This will ensure we can continue production should our current equipment require repairs or extended maintenance.

Being underfunded

The risk of not meeting our maximum subscription of $1.5 million

We believe that our minimum target of $250,000 will be sufficient

to increase production efficiency, fund our preliminary marketing

and sales strategies and activate our Mansfield Street espresso

bar & retail space.

Coffee shortages

The risk of not being able to source coffee

We have partnered with TradeAid since we began trade in 2004. TradeAid have built robust supply chains across the globe, forwarding contract coffee volumes and pre-financing shipments. As we grow, we intend on lifting stock on-hand from one month to six months to build resilience.

    These financial numbers are a consolidation of the actual and forecasted numbers of People Coffee Limited and Peoples Coffee Retail Limited which are the trading companies of the People Coffee Global group. The consolidation was performed by +MORE Advisory and Accountancy.

    Governance & Advisory Board

    Matt Lamason - Founder & Director

    Hailing from a farming background in Dannevirke, Matt plied his trade as a barista in Wellington while studying the polarities of Politics and Psychology at Victoria University. A long-time lover of food and great hospitality, Matt turned down his first graduate job as a PR man in the Whips Office at Parliament to pursue a dream of making a difference in global trade via coffee. A year later Peoples Coffee was born, named from the print of his favourite Volcom t-shirt.

     

    After eight years at the helm of Peoples, Matt stepped aside to nurture three beautiful humans, and went on to found other startups such as Trade School Industries - a trust focused on creating meaningful jobs for ex-prisoners from Arohata Women’s prison -  and Kapiti Biodiesel - a shipping container lab that transformed waste cooking oil into biodiesel. Now based on the Kāpiti coast, Matt is passionate about seeing others’ dreams become a reality through life coaching, and living closer to the elements.

     

    James Bushell - Advisor

    James Bushell is a leading strategist in incorporating ethics and sustainability into commercial models. He has worked across a range of industries, scales and countries, applying data-driven and systems-thinking approaches to create impactful solutions.

     

    He has had governance and executive experience in developing, emerging and developed economies, so understands the challenges that come with different environments and the practicalities of actually getting things done. James cares deeply about people and is driven to create a more equitable and sustainable world.

     

    Richard Shirtcliffe - Advisor 

    A veteran CMO, CEO and Director, Richard has been founding, building, and transforming purpose-driven brands in NZ, the UK and USA for over 30 years, across multiple categories.

     

    Whilst claiming that his greatest achievements are his kids, consistently avant-garde hairstyle and an especially head-turning stall at the 1983 Hatepe tombola, he’s perhaps better known for having led globally successful local brands phil&teds, Mountain Buggy, Mokopuna merino, and Prorack; for growing Tuatara Brewing into NZ’s largest independent craft brewery as CEO, and subsequently as CEO of Coffee Supreme International, and noho.co.

     

    A longtime Peoples Coffee fanboy, Richard has a passion for ‘un-mucking the world’, and now devotes his time to helping build disruptive 'triple bottom line' brands like WildClean.com, the world’s first plastic and carbon-negative cleaning co.

     

     

    Risks & Mitigations

    Risk

    Description

    Mitigation

    Increased competition

    New Zealand has a saturated coffee scene; there is the risk that we see more competitors enter the industry.

    With a combination of our product quality, 18 years of trade, a wealth of experience within our team and the increased production capacity from our Mansfield HQ, we will be able to remain relevant and continue to compete.

    Key personnel

    The potential to lose key personnel

    Following the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns and isolation periods, we have automated many areas of our supply chain, from order processing to packing design and have been training two or more staff to fulfil key roles within our company; notably coffee roasting.

    Profitability

    The risk of not operating profitably

    We are diversifying our sales channels to build resilience against potential external factors such as Covid-19 lockdowns. We are working closely with our advisors and accountants to maintain appropriate margins across all revenue lines. We also aim to keep tight controls over our costs.

    Cashflow

    The risk of not having sufficient working capital to meet our obligations due to either a downturn in sales or delayed payments from our customers.

    We have been working closely with our new banking partner BNZ to establish appropriate capital products to meet our growth strategies. We will continue to chase up any late-paying customers and adjust payment terms accordingly.

    Key production equipment

    The risk of breakdowns with our coffee roasting equipment.

    Post-raise, we plan to acquire a larger capacity coffee roaster to add to our fleet. This will ensure we can continue production should our current equipment require repairs or extended maintenance.

    Being underfunded

    The risk of not meeting our maximum subscription of $1.5 million

    We believe that our minimum target of $250,000 will be sufficient

    to increase production efficiency, fund our preliminary marketing

    and sales strategies and activate our Mansfield Street espresso

    bar & retail space.

    Coffee shortages

    The risk of not being able to source coffee

    We have partnered with TradeAid since we began trade in 2004. TradeAid have built robust supply chains across the globe, forwarding contract coffee volumes and pre-financing shipments. As we grow, we intend on lifting stock on-hand from one month to six months to build resilience.

    Equity crowdfunding is risky. Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of business is very speculative and carries high risks. You may lose your entire investment and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship. New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision. The usual rules do not apply to offers by issuers using this facility. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment.

     

    Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.

      Explanation of valuation:

      The valuation of Peoples Coffee Global Limited has been undertaken by its shareholders and Advisory Board. The valuation has been calculated using the ‘Multiple of Revenue’ method. This method is commonly used by growing Food & Beverage companies when raising capital from the public.

      The current shareholders and Advisory Board are comfortable that a 3.2x multiple on the 2022 Financial Year’s actual revenues reflects a fair market value, based on the growth potential of our new factory premise and expansion opportunity into supermarket distribution.

      These financial numbers are a consolidation of the actual and forecasted numbers of People Coffee Limited and Peoples Coffee Retail Limited which are the trading companies of the People Coffee Global group. The consolidation was performed by +MORE Advisory and Accountancy.

      Liabilities are predominantly made up of accounts payable and business and equipment loans.
