Coffee shop franchise seeks entrepreneurs to get in on the ground floor of an exciting new brand
Just Love Coffee & Eatery is one of the most exciting opportunities to hit the market in a long-time. The rise in popularity of artisanal coffee continues to grow, bringing the cost of the average cup of coffee to nearly $3.30, according to Zagat. With several locations open in the area of Nashville, Tennessee, Just Love Coffee & Eatery has perfected a business model that is easy to own and easy to scale.
Unlike traditional coffee shops, Just Love Coffee & Eatery requires only a small footprint and limited staff, which makes it a unique investment opportunity in the $12 billion U.S. coffee shop industry. As a finalist in the prestigious Roast magazine’s Roaster of the Year competition for several consecutive years, Just Love Coffee & Eatery franchise owners know that their coffee is first-rate, hand-crafted artisanal coffee. Another key differentiator is that Just Love Coffee & Eatery offers a full day and evening menu without the need to utilize a full kitchen, which helps keeps overhead low and quality control high. Instead, Just Love Coffee & Eatery products are cooked to perfection on a waffle iron, which makes our food products easy to cook and provides our customers with a playful experience that is memorable, fun and affordable.
“There are very few coffee shops that can offer the range of products that Just Love Coffee & Eatery offers to our customers,” says Rob Webb, President and founder of Just Love Coffee & Eatery. “In order to increase the level of profitability in our coffee shops, we have developed a simple and delicious menu that utilizes the waffle iron instead of a full kitchen. This has increased our average ticket price to $10-$12 per customer, and we serve a wide variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads that include vegetarian, gluten-free and paleo dining options. Of course, our main focus is our coffee — and we’ve built our coffee shop to be inclusive, so that the elitism of high-end coffee culture is removed as soon as you walk through the doors. There are classic arcade games, a coffee bar and quiet study enclaves designed to meet the needs of guests who want to bring their children, socialize with their friends or study for an exam. We appeal to coffee elitists just as much as those who prefer ‘regular’ coffee.”

“It was very important to us to have a proven business model before we established ourselves as a franchise system,” says Rob Webb, president and founder of Just Love Coffee & Eatery. “We scaled the brand to three locations in the Nashville area on our own to perfect our business model, standardize systems and operations, and ensure that the business was not only easy to operate, but replicable and sustainable over the long term. We’re extremely excited to welcome the first wave of franchise owners to a brand that was created out of love as we grow together across the nation.”
