Local champions Bean Squeeze has opened its 12th drive-thru in the Geelong region

The latest drive-thru has opened in Moorabool Street, with two more locations on the way.

Geelong drive-through coffee business Bean Squeeze have been making our dreams a reality and our lives a lot easier over the past 16 or so years. Boasting quality coffee, good food, friendly faces and super fast service, Bean Squeeze was born from the distaste of having to find a car park in a crowded spot, then standing around in a packed coffee shop every day for a morning caffeine hit.

Since opening the first Bean Squeeze store on Mercer Street in March 2006, the team have been delivering an energy boost for the tired worker in peak hour traffic, daily morning caffeine hits, a quick break for those on a long journey, and a moment of serenity for the parent with the screaming child in the back.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news across the region here.

Becoming part of our daily routine ever since, the Bean Squeeze crew have gone on to open 11 more stores in and around central Geelong, even adding in a kitchen facility to allow for the sale of delicious on-the-go food options.

And now they’ve just added one more, taking their total to 12 stores across the Geelong region and ensuring their customers are back on the road within a minute or two.

Coffee lovers may have already noticed, but if not you will find the new store in 500-506 Moorabool Street, just near the famed Barwon Club Hotel. With stores scattered across the region, this new store is going to be an absolute blessing for those heading into the CBD.

Having been under construction for the last few months, the space has received a major-glow up, taking over a site which was fitted out as a car sales yard and was previously home to the now closed Formula Uno Motors. Now complete, the building is approx. 49.5m2, with a 40m2 an outdoor seating and waiting area located to the east of the service building. Of course, it also features all the distinct Bean Squeeze finishes, including black steel fencing, ash timber cladding and light grey tiling.

Alongside their perfectly brewed coffee, you’ll also find all the regular items on offer including juice, hot chocolate, salted caramel hot chocolate, chai lattes, smoothies, toasties, banana bread, muffins and even their choc hazelnut protein balls.

As they say, drive-thru, leave happier.

This is the latest Bean Squeeze to open in the region, with two more stores due to open in 2023 – including a store at 166 Fyans St, South Geelong and 771 Barwon Heads Rd, Armstrong Creek.

Bean Squeeze 500-506 Moorabool Street, Geelong is open Monday-Friday from 5:30am to 5:30pm, Saturdays from 7am to 5pm, and Sundays from 8am to 3pm.
