The Coffee Club with John Lazarou

John Lazarou went from being a hairdresser 1989, to joining two forwarding-thinking business minds the following year, in operating a small cafe in Brisbane.

That same venue over the next 30 years, evolved into one of the most notable franchises in the coffee industry – now, with 400 venues across 9 countries.

John joins the program as a Director of that brand – The Coffee Club – and its holding company, Minor DKL Food Group.
