GRINDING AWAY

ZARRAFFA’S Coffee stores are as ubiquitous as the man behind the brand and while 50 outlets is a target before the close of 2011, CEO Kenton Campbell (pictured) is introspective when considering the big picture.

“I always dreamed that I had something big in me, but it has become bigger than I have ever imagined,” he says.




Kenton Campbell was crowned the inaugural Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2008. As Gold Coast Business News prepares to hit the go button and open nominations for the 2011 awards, we speak to the Zarraffa’s chief executive about his past success and future endeavours.
