COFFEE is fuelling the business dreams of Brassall couple Angela and Boubacar Barry.
The Coffee Club franchisees this month took ownership of their newest store at Orion Springfield Town Centre.
It continues their long affiliation with the award-winning international brand and joins their franchises at Ipswich Riverlink shopping centre, Booval Fair and Redbank Plaza.
Mr Barry said the Springfield store had plenty of potential.
He said the fully-licensed venue operated as a cafe, bar and restaurant and would soon be open on Saturday nights.
"We knew the previous owners and were given the opportunity to take ownership of the business," Mr Barry said.
"We've got a great customer base out here and a lot of community support.
"Most importantly, all the staff is brilliant. They work together like a family.
"We have a full restaurant menu, so we serve things like steak, pasta and risotto. We're going to open on Saturday nights because that's the night customers want to go out for dinner."
Mr Barry and his wife opened their Riverlink and Booval franchises in 2007, followed by Redbank in 2009.
"We love the challenge, this is what we know," he said.
"We've been part of The Coffee Club for a long time."
Mrs Barry said the Springfield franchise would undergo a "mini refurbishment" to give it a fresh, clean look.
