The Coffee Beanery Franchise Information

The Coffee Beanery is a franchise for a specialty coffee store. Their first store was opened in Flushing Michigan in 1976 by JoAnne and Julius Shaw.

Built on good coffee, a calm and relaxing environment, and a professional culture, The Coffee Beanery grew into over 100 locations in the United States and more than 25 locations internationally. They have instilled a family business approach that made their service very personal and was the key to successful franchising company. Together with the culture, specialty coffee has made its name and in their Flushing Michigan facility, coffee beans are hand-selected. Each is flavoured, roasted and packaged in their headquarters which is also where their distribution center is. Starbucks does not franchise and for those wanting to start in the coffee business, The Coffee Beanery has become a good alternative for a specialty coffee shop.
