First retailer for USC Moreton Bay campus

10 Jan 2020

For new university students with their heads buried in textbooks and screens, fresh-roasted coffee and an all-day breakfast menu can offer a welcome pick-me-up.

The first cohort of students at USC Moreton Bay will have the convenience of Brisbane roaster, retailer and supplier Bellissimo Coffee located on campus at Petrie.

Bellissimo Coffee, established in 2009 in Fortitude Valley, is the first external retailer confirmed for USC Moreton Bay.

Construction of the outlet is underway on campus at Petrie. It is due to open in February.

The company, which has won more than 150 industry awards, has developed a menu to cater for the campus needs of USC Moreton Bay.

USC Chief Operating Officer Dr Scott Snyder said USC Moreton Bay wanted its opening retailers to come to the campus with well-earned reputations for quality and the desire to serve local student and community needs.

“Bellissimo Coffee and then textbook and stationery supplier EduGear will form the first part of our dynamic retail strategy, with four tenancies available in our foundation building,” he said. “These will expand as the campus grows.”

Bellissimo Coffee owner Michael Koo said: “Bellissimo Coffee is excited to join the USC Moreton Bay campus and become part of a vibrant educational and cultural hub”.

“Our menu has been developed with nutritious, fresh, seasonal meals, fresh pastries and a range of house-baked sweets,” Mr Koo said. “Coffee will be served to our roastery level exacting standards.

“We are looking forward to serving high quality coffee and food to the students, staff and local community.”

EduGear is a pop-up textbook and stationery supplier that has been based at Brendale since 2009. It is owned by the Jarrl Family Trust and has been a Department of Education approved supplier to primary and secondary schools for the past eight years.
