After much consideration, and a somewhat heavy heart, we’ve decided to sell the Mario’s Coffee business including Mario’s Ivanhoe and the real estate. The formal sale process has now started. As a result we won’t be reopening Mario’s Ivanhoe. But our online store and wholesale business (Mario’s Coffee Services) will remain OPEN. We are going to miss the tens of thousands of customers who have been the cornerstone of our 40 year journey and central in the creation of the Mario’s story. We will always treasure the many valued friendships and wonderful stories that owning and operating Mario’s Coffee House has granted us. We hope and expect the new owners would want to continue to run and develop the Mario’s brand, to build on 40 years as one of Melbourne’s coffee institutions. As we said the formal sale process process is now under way. If you are interested in finding out more please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
