Piccolo Me

Piccolo Me was founded in October 2012 by brothers Charlie & Roy El Hachem. The brothers set out to develop a brand that was different and did not look like a traditional chain. Each Piccolo Me store has been built, loved and cared for to not looking like just another chain. The Piccolo Me brand and concept are young at heart but strong on traditions, playing on the strength of emotional connections and childhood favourites; mixing traditional flavours with a modern twist. The name 'Piccolo Me' originated from Charlie and Roy's coffees of choice 'Piccolo Latte' and pays homage to the size of their first store being small. With 23 stores in NSW and 2 in VIC, Piccolo Me has built a reputation for providing consistency in high quality coffee, superior creative menus and on-trend advertising. Of course we want customers to leave our stores with a full belly, but the giggles from fun and memorable interactions with our brand is going to bring them back!
