About the Founders Charlie & Roy

Charlie and Roy grew up surrounded by family. They knew how special it was to be part of something with each other. With their dad in the hospitality industry for most of their teenage years, the boys fell into the hospitality business, making food and coffee everyday. To out it simply: it’s the only thing they know how to do!

Charlie started his career as a barista, while working his way to winning Sydney’s favourite café award. Roy started off his career as a barista while studying marketing full time. Wanting to break traditional concepts and moulds, they set out to develop a brand that was fun, energetic and exciting, together! 

Their idea was to not just create a place where people could enjoy food and drinks, but a place that made sure the laughs, memorable moments and interactions people had in their stores would bring them back.

The name “Piccolo Me” originated from the brothers coffee of choice, a “Piccolo Latte” and pays homage to their first store being small, recognising that something big has to start out small.

With that being, since Piccolo Me’s establishment in 2012, they have opened over 30 store locations across Sydney, Wollongong and Melbourne, and many more to come!

The Piccolo Me brand is continually expanding by opening more store locations, to welcome more people to join and share their experiences with our caffeinated family!

What does it mean to be “Piccolo’d”?
