The Human Bean Drive-Thru Franchise Information

The Human Bean Drive Thru is a franchise for a specialty coffee drive-thru. It was founded in 1998 and started franchising in 2002. The first Human bean was opened in Ashland, Oregon.

They easily got positive feedback from customers who encouraged them to expand and open more locations in Southern Oregon within the next five years from the time they opened their first location.

They grew more as they started offering franchising their system and their brand. They say that the reason for their growth is the current positive attitude and operational strength of their franchisees. They have developed systems and markets that did not exist before. This commitment that they are getting from franchisees is what helps them develop their drive-thru espresso brand. They now have 35 locations in the United States and 12 locations that are company owned.
