A team from Rotorua Boys' High School has taken out third place at the National Young Enterprise Awards. 

Coffee Direct took out the Rotorua/Taupō regional competition, gaining them a place in the National finals. The team wowed the judges with their coffee delivery service, landing them in third place.

With no cafes in near reach to their school, Coffee Direct decided to launch their own cafe on the school grounds.

They provide barista training to students at the school and have implemented an app-based ordering system.

To further support their school, the team have started the Raukura Rangatahi Fund, a startup fund in which 10 per cent of the profits from Coffee Direct will go into supporting new student ventures.

They believe this will be a great incentive to uplift up-and-coming entrepreneurs within their school.

The company was awarded a $1000 cash prize and $1000 for their school.
