The Gloria Jean’s Coffees story began in the USA in 1979 when Gloria Jean and Ed Kvetko opened a specialty gourmet coffee outlet in a small town just north of Chicago.
With appreciation for quality coffee growing, it wasn’t long before Gloria Jean’s Coffees outlets started to appear around the USA.
More than 16 years later, Nabi Saleh, an Australian businessman and coffee expert, experienced the brand while in the USA and with his business partner, Peter Irvine, brought Gloria Jean’s Coffees across the globe to Australia.
Australia quickly became Gloria Jean’s Coffees' fastest growing market. So with a recipe for success, Nabi and Peter set their sights on realising a vision to make Gloria Jean’s Coffees the most loved and respected coffee company in the world.
In 2004, they returned to the USA and purchased the international branding and roasting rights for all countries outside of the USA.
Today Gloria Jean’s Coffees is located in numerous countries around the world and continues to find a place in the hearts of coffee lovers everywhere.
