Our Story
The Good Food Providers

THE MALONEYS FAMILY

15 Years and Counting!

At Maloneys we are all about championing quality, Australian produce. As a family business, comprising of Richard & Joanna Maloney, and brother-in-law Sebastian, we are hands-on and have been since day one.

All three of us share a common passion for good food, and enjoy nothing more than sharing a meal with friends and family. This passion for good food is what drives us every day.

As Coogee locals we recognised the great need for a quality grocer in the neighbourhood, and so opened our first store on Coogee Bay Road in 2006. Responding to demand in the Surry Hills area a further store was opened on Crown Street in 2009. Then in 2016 we opened our third store on Moncur Street, Woollahra.

Our aim is to provide a convenient one stop shop of quality fruit and vegetables, fresh food, and groceries to our local neighbourhoods. We hand pick our produce, and taste our fresh food and groceries. Supporting Australian growers and producers will always be a priority, as is providing fresh, seasonal produce. Our staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. You will always be greeted with a smile at Maloneys! 😀
