Bringing a bold, cold brew to the UK with Jimmy’s Iced Coffee Founders, Jim and Suzie Cregan #4

It Runs In The Family

31-03-2021 • 1 hr 22 mins

The story of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee is a 10 year journey of massive wins, starting on the South Coast and earning its place as a household name. A great degree of the success of this family owned business might be explained by an almost-telepathic understanding between the brother and sister pairing of Suzie and Jim Cregan (Yes, Jim as in Jimmy’s).

From the inception of the idea from Jim’s experience in Australia, right through to the established brand we know today with high caliber ambassadors like Dame Judi Dench, the story is one of nurturing a culture with no hierarchy, and supporting each other through thick and thin. Discover the animated duo’s incredible story on the next episode of It Runs In The Family.
