The premier specialty coffee franchise is a low cost investment opportunity with a proven business model that is simple to run and easy to own
Just Love Coffee Cafe is meeting the tremendous demand for specialty coffee that caters to the mainstream and is currently seeking savvy investors and first-time entrepreneurs alike to get in on the ground floor of a first-to-market franchise opportunity.
With a small footprint, low overhead and limited staff (5-6 at launch), Just Love Coffee Cafe is simple to operate, easy to scale and has a business model that is unique in the $12 billion U.S. coffee shop industry. In addition to offering a wide variety of hand roasted coffee blends and specialty beverages, many of which have been developed in-house, franchise owners get to take advantage of a full all-day menu — an additional revenue stream that is unique in the specialty coffee shop segment and can potentially increase the return on investment.
From a franchise investment standpoint, the menu has the added benefit of being easy to cook and easy to keep quality control high, in addition to providing a different type of dining experience from the standard cafe fare. Instead of using a full kitchen, Just Love Coffee Cafe utilizes waffle irons to create our array of breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Everything from a waffled omelet to an array of waffled sandwiches are cooked to perfection with a waffle iron! The result has not only increased our average ticket price to $10-$12 per customer, but it has also provided our rapidly growing customer base with a memorable experience that is perfect for posting about on social media.
“We spent several years proving the concept before we launched as a franchise system,” says Alan Thompson, President of Just Love Coffee Cafe. “We’ve come up with a business model that is simple to operate and easy to scale, no matter how experienced our franchise owners are in a coffee shop environment. Everything about our brand is different from the traditional coffee shop experience — from our commitment to charities, to providing specialty coffee with a mainstream sensibility. We’re a brand that people can relate to on a lot of levels. In the next few years, we’re going to have dozens of shops open across the country, and we will continue to stay true to our core values of providing high quality coffee, great food and exceptional customer service while we do it.”
Who are we looking for?
Just Love Coffee Cafe is seeking owner-operators or savvy investors of any experience level who are interested in becoming a meaningful part of their communities. We provide in-depth initial and ongoing training and coaching from the moment you sign a franchise agreement with us. We help with site selection, lease negotiation, hiring practices, training on how to correctly prepare and serve Just Love Coffee Cafe products, marketing and social media support and more.
“You have to get into the coffee shop business because you love people,” says Rob Webb, CEO and founder of Just Love Coffee Cafe. “The right owner will be an extrovert. This is a very social business; you become a hub for your community. We encourage our franchise owners to open their space up for events, host different groups and take care of their customers as though they would their own family. We have developed a model that is simple to follow, but we’re accessible and are on-hand to support you for as long as you own your Just Love shop. We want our franchise owners to succeed because that means Just Love Coffee Cafe will succeed.”
Just Love Coffee Cafe shares your values
Just Love Coffee Cafe began as an online coffee service to help raise money for families seeking to adopt children after founder Rob Webb went through the expensive process with his wife in 2008 – 2009. As Just Love Coffee Cafe has grown to include wholesale coffee sold in major supermarket chains such as Whole Foods and Fresh Market, so too have our charitable aims. We’re proud that we’ve been able to give back hundreds of thousands of dollars to couples going through the expensive adoption process.
“While we don’t mandate that our franchise owners be charitable, the right candidate will be a person who shares our values of giving back,” Alan says. “As Mother Theresa says, taking care of the poor is not easy but it is simple, and all of us who are in position to do something to help truly should. Giving back is a personal concern and our franchise owners have their own individual causes they feel compelled to support, not only with money but by using their space for the good of the community. The right franchise owner will have a real passion for our mission.”
