Chris Horn has been a professional businessman since finishing his education.​

Employed as a business manager for a large company servicing the Ford Motor Co with 140 employees​

Chris started his first business in 1978. The business grew to become the largest contract powder coating company in Australia. Chris also developed and patented a range of modular decorative fencing for the DIY market. Marcelle joined the company in 1990.​

After 15 years the business was sold.​

Chris and Marcelle became McDonald’s licensees with 1 store operating in Melbourne. ​

After 5 years McDonald’s in recognition of the excellence in operation offered the opportunity to move to Darwin in the NT to purchase 3 existing stores.  Chris and Marcelle owned and ran these businesses and opened their 4 store in 2007 with over 400 employees across all 4 stores.​

Sold the McDonalds businesses in 2011 and moved to Brisbane.​

In 2012 while on a holiday to Europe Chris saw a Zummo machine for the first time and was fascinated by the operation of the machine.​

In 2013 Chris purchased 2 x Z14 machines to install in the 2 cafes that Marcelle and he owned. Impressed by the sales and quality of the machine he commenced a line of communication with Zummo Spain.​

And the rest as they say ‘Is History”.​
