About Us

The Mojo Story

Founded as a boutique roastery café in Wellington by Steve and Julie Gianoutsos in 2003, Mojo Coffee is now one of New Zealand’s most experienced and respected independent coffee roasters and café operators.

Importing green beans directly from source to our Wellington and Dunedin roasteries, we roast daily and distribute our premium blends and single origins to cafés, restaurants, offices and homes across the country as well as our own Mojo cafés – maintaining a complete ‘crop to cup’ approach.

Mojo Cafés

We operate 22 unique Mojo cafés in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin, serving up over 50,000 expertly extracted coffees each and every week.

Mojo cafés are a special place, each one unique to its location and surroundings. Our cafés offer a place to transact business, meet a favourite friend or grab a coffee and lunch to go. We provide the very best in direct trade coffee and freshly prepared food, with great service and a relaxed atmosphere.

While each store is unique, so too are our operators. We partner with passionate and experienced senior staff members to operate our cafés. Unlike a franchise model, this enables the Partner/Manager to benefit from co-owning their own café, with customers receiving the same trademark Mojo experience at each and every café.

Join the Team

As one of the country’s fastest growing and most innovative coffee companies, we’re constantly looking for passionate, energetic and talented people to join our team.

We’re known for our consistently excellent coffee, food and service. But we are also about delivering an experience for every customer above and beyond their cup of coffee – an experience only possible with the connections between our people and our customers.

If you are looking to advance your hospitality career, we’re seriously passionate about growing our leaders to be some of the industry’s best. We offer a Leadership Development Programme and exciting leadership and co-ownership opportunities across the country.
