Welcome to the Café Lutz franchise opportunity

This unique concept café, bar and restaurant is looking for franchisees to share a taste of Switzerland with the UK.

Café Lutz is a comfortable space to eat, drink, meet or relax on a backdrop of carefully selected playlists, guaranteed to entertain. Open all day – coffee and breakfast in the morning, then lunch in the afternoon where we serve afternoon teas and light bites. Café Lutz then transforms  into an upscale, fun and friendly bar in the evening. Offering a full food menu and a carefully chosen selection of drinks.

The concept

Moving from Newcastle to Luzern, Switzerland in 1993, Founder Philip Getty was heavily involved in the gastronomy scene for more than 25 years. World-famous for the beauty of its landscapes, Switzerland is surrounded by 5 countries: Austria, Liechtenstein, France, Italy and Germany. It has adopted not only the languages of its neighbours but also their cultures, food and drinks.

Café Lutz is a unique, stylish mixture of these cultures and cuisines. It will become an instant classic in your community and a hit with UK customers who are after something a little different to the usual dining experience.
