Tantalising coffee aside, it is the background story, initiative and community commitment that deserves significant recognition. The original founder Julian La Starza, after having spent almost a decade as a barista, decided it was time to take his passion and skill set to the next level. Julian ventured forth with his new business initiative in 2020.

Julian has combined modern coffee with a traditional Italian roast that delivers the perfect cup of coffee every single time. Franks Coffee SA is evidence that with enough passion, dedication, sweat and tears, even the most humble of beginnings can lead you to greatness.

The name, as well as the business’ ethos, is a testament to the character and strong values that his beloved Nonno is known and respected for.

Franks Coffee SA

Juilian partnered with his best friend Giuliano, to launch Franks Coffee SA. Like Julian, his best mate Giuliano is also a coffee bean enthusiast and came to the table with many years of experience in hospitality. Importantly, Giuliano shares many common interests and the same passions as his business partner.

Glenunga Hub is a state-of-the-art community hub complete with outdoorplaza and playground. Glenunga Hub can be hired for celebrations, community programs, meetings, presentations and other events from the City of Burnside.

It is not just about delivering up a tantalising blend with every cup, both Julian and Giuliano are fanatical about customer service and connection, as well as a ensuring a humble and authentic approach to business.

What is clear about this duo is that they have fun. Stepping up to the challenge everytime, their energy and friendly nature shines through.

Julian decided on the name ‘Frank’s Coffee’ to celebrate his Italian heritage and as a living tribute to his Nonno, Francesco (Frank) Mercorella.

On the grand opening of Franks Coffee SA, Anna Leombruno Councillor Newton had the pleasure to welcome the business duo and also meet the man himself – Mr Frank Mercorella.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Mr Frank Mercorella himself, who was a former employee at the Campbelltown City Council. Congratulations to Julian & Giuliano on today’s grand opening and new location of Frank’s Coffee SA.

Franks Coffee SA – Community Spirited!

The Franks Coffee SA mobile coffee cart has been put to good community use. In fact, the lads at Franks Coffee are becoming quite the legends in the local community.

Frank’s Coffee SA teamed up with Pizza Autentica (and a number of other generous partners) to put on their maiden charity dinner and raise funds for the chairtable organisation Puddle Jumpers.

Puddle Jumpers Inc is a non profit, non-government organisation committed to responding to the social development needs of society’s most vulnerable children and young people.

Julian and Gulian explained how they were moved by the speech made by Puddle Jumpers founder Melanie Tate on the evening (pictured on this articles feature photograph).

Overall, the whole event at The Glenunga Hub and was a blinding success. Showcasing South Australia’s best wood-oven pizzas and barista made coffee, the Charity Dinner included multiple hospitality partner collaboration and much planning & organisation. A commendable initiative by our lads Julian and Giuliano at Franks Coffee SA.

The best thing of all? Through Puddle Jumpers a helping hand could be extended to South Australia’s most underprivileged and at-risk young people and children.

To all those who attended, thank you so much for your support and we sincerely hope you enjoyed every minute of the evening.

What’s in Store for the Future?

Julian informed me excitedly that there are already plans for expansion. Slowly but surely Franks Coffee will be taking over the city with their perfectly roasted coffee!

Julian and Giuliano also have plans to do much more fundraising activities for local community organisations and charities in the future.

Interested? Then stop by for a morning coffee at Franks Coffee SA, Glenunga and relax amongst the laid back settings. You can also visit the Franks Coffee Facebook page for information on their opening hours and how to book them for your private, social, fundraising or corporate event.

Frank’s Coffee’s mission is to bring back the simplicity and authenticity of business and customer connection. Frank’s Coffee is, and always will be, a true local business intent on embracing South Australia’s mutual love of coffee to instil the strong values carried forward by the great Francesco Mercorella himself.
