New Barista On The Block

In late February 2020 Jack Chen and wife Iris took over the popular Gloria Jean’s Coffees at Westfield Tea Tree Plaza. After moving to Adelaide in 2012 to study a Bachelor in Mathematical Finance & Economics and Masters in Marketing Jack was head hunted by an international hotel group.

After taking his very first sip of coffee in South Australia, he instantly became hooked. Working in the hospitality and marketing industry in the hotel group Jack was waiting for the right opportunity to present itself… then came along the sale of Gloria Jeans Coffees Westfield Tea Tree Plaza.

Jack often refers to his marketing knowledge when launching a new menu items. His go-to drink is oat milk caramel latte. Oat milk is the plant-based milk which has the lowest sugar level. ‘The Gloria Jeans Coffees’ special sugar free caramel is another reason for lots of customers including myself to go for a caramel latte from Gloria Jeans Coffee’, says Jack.

Jack explains, ‘as a neighbourhood café, we strive to always make our guests feel welcome, comfortable and have the best possible experience. We always believe the most important thing is serving our guests love and happiness.’

It’s no surprise the top selling Gloria Jeans Coffee menu item is the classic latte- one of the best brews you’ll find at Ta Tree Plaza if you ask Jack! This is followed by the Voltage, a combination of smooth vanilla and espresso beans blended and topped with fresh hot espresso shots. The perfect drink to cool you down in the upcoming summer season!
