Making a difference,
one muffin at a time

Mugg & Bean has been a supporter of Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer and their parent organisation, Cupcakes of Hope, since 2012. Every year in September, we have donated a significant portion of our sales to this worthy cause. From 2012-2017 we made cupcakes, but in 2018 we decided to change it up and now we donate R5 for every one of our famous Giant Muffins sold for the entire month.

You can show your support simply by purchasing your favourite Giant Muffin from any Mugg & Bean restaurant or M&B On-The-Move. Plus, you can download our Generosity app and donate your beans (you get R25 worth of beans just for signing up!) or make a financial contribution.
