About Us

Our History
Caesar and Frances Franckin have a long history of good taste. Both of Italian background, Caesar's grandfather was the founder of the first commercial pasta factory in Australia, and Frances' Italian mother has influenced many of her recipes and products sold in the shop.

After selling out of the liquor industry, they saw a need for fresh pasta, gourmet food and roasted coffee on the Central Coast so Caesar and Frances started the business in 1985 as Erina Gourmet Centre. What began as a small business at home slowly grew into a small factory at Erina. People soon started to recognise Caesars as a gourmet heaven, with fresh roasted coffee and a small range of fresh pasta and sauces.

Their two daughters, Lara and Sonia both started working full time with the business and not long after it became obvious that they had to move to a larger shop, as Frances was adding many more new lines and the coffee side of the business had grown immensely. The new store was opened on May 1, 2000 at The Entrance Road, in a purpose built three level building, with custom designed kitchens and coffee roasting plant.The business name was changed to 'Caesars Coffee & Fine Food' as over the years everyone had come to know the business as 'Caesars'. Caesars is the place to go for gourmet food & coffee on the Central Coast
