Losses have piled up at Coffee Republic as the company continues its transformation to a franchising model.

For the year-ending 25 March the coffee chain made a net loss of £2.45m, up from £1.45m a year ago and saw sales fall by 34.8% to £9.7m (2006: £14.9m).

Coffee Republic said it was this conversion to franchising, from direct ownership of the coffee shops, which had caused the fall in sales and profits.

However, it said in a results statement that the rapid expansion of franchised sites, from five in March 2006 to 31 as of this month, as well as a number of regional and international franchising agreements, gave plenty of reason for optimism about the company’s future performance.
