THE Southern Downs can almost taste the Arabica beans as The Coffee Club prepares to move into the Rose City.

Landmark Harcourts sales consultant Richard Thew, who sold the former Ranbuild site at the corner of Albion and Percy sts, confirmed its new occupant would be a Coffee Club franchise.

"It was on the market for a while and negotiations had been going on for about 12 months," he said.

Peter Cook from Brisbane is the new owner of the site and Mr Thew said he had picked a winner.

"I think it's the best site in Warwick and if you find a better one, let me know," Mr Thew said.

"It's in close proximity to McDonalds, which means high exposure and McDonalds is a flagship for the take-away industry.

"It's next to a service station, you've got Chung Hing around the corner and a chain of food outlets plus it appeals to the travelling public as well as the locals."

Mr Thew said the new cafe-restaurant would create new jobs and would be "quite a substantial development".

New franchisee Peter Cook will meet with the council on Wednesday morning to discuss final plans.

"It's such a good site and if he gets his wishes for the final development it will be a great addition to the town," Mr Thew said.

Construction on the site began yesterday but will be in full swing by Monday.
