Human Bean Food Drive 2017

The Human Bean Food Drive was held on Friday, August 25th.  This was our 8th annual event.  Human Bean customers who participated in the one-day event received drink discounts in exchange for food donations.  Also, in Oregon, they received a chance to win Ducks or Beavers football tickets if they donated 3 items or more.

human bean food drive

With the majority of food drives held during the winter months, many local food banks run lowest on food supplies during the summer.  The Human Bean recognizes this need and believes that everyone deserves a nutritious meal, no matter what time of year.  Therefore we choose to run our annual event during the summer months as a way to give back to our local communities when most needed.

Each participating Human Bean location chose a local food bank to support.  In Southern Oregon, food donations went to Access.  In Northern Oregon, food donations went to Oregon Food Bank as well as FISH Emergency Services in Newberg and a local church food bank in Canby.  Between all of the 13 corporate Oregon locations over a thousand pounds of food was donated!

Human Bean Food Drive Results

Kyle Hummel with Oregon Food Bank reported back after the Human Bean Food Drive, “So the grand total was 187 pounds which will allow us to provide 159 meals to the community!  Or help out 159 of our neighbors in need!  Pretty awesome!  I hope you are as proud of those numbers as we are; to be able to support almost 160 people is wonderful!”  This was from only 3 locations in Northern Oregon and yes, we are very proud of these numbers!

The Human Bean has 68 locations in 11 states so you can imagine the cumulative impact we were able to make.

Human Bean Food Drive Football Winners

The winners of the Oregon football tickets were chosen randomly after the drive was completed.  Donors who entered were able to specify which team tickets they would like to win.  Carol Snider of Eugene won tickets to the Beavers vs. Stanford game and Kristin Davidson of Grants Pass won tickets to the Ducks vs. Arizona Wildcats game.  Congratulations to them both!

Cold Brew – What exactly is it?

Cold Brew is quite the buzz word these days.  You’ve probably tried it.  And if you have, you probably love it.  But what exactly is it?  And  how is it made?  Here’s everything you need to know about Cold Brew!

!cold brew

It’s Brewed in Cold Water

Hence the name.  Cold brew coffee is actually steeped in room temperature or chilled water and never touches hot water.  This causes a much slower flavor extraction which contributes to the smooth flavor of cold brew coffee.

It Takes at Least 12 Hours to Make

Cold brew coffee is made by steeping coarse ground coffee in large paper coffee filters in water for 12-18 hours and then diluted to taste with water.  We make fresh batches over night so they are ready to be served each morning!

It’s HandCrafted

You won’t find our cold brew in a can.  It’s handcrafted by our own baristas to ensure it’s fresh!  That’s why there is limited availability based on what we make each day.  Come get it while it’s hot!  Errr….cold, we mean.

It’s not the same as Iced Coffee

Iced coffee is essentially normally brewed coffee that is chilled and then poured over ice.  It still has the same flavor as hot coffee and might taste more acidic or even bitter compared to cold brew coffee.

Cold Brew can be Customized

You can add flavored syrups or chocolate or caramel to cold brew.  It’s rich smooth flavor tastes great with vanilla, coconut or hazelnut flavors.  You can also add dairy or dairy alternatives if you prefer!

So now that you know what it is, then you have no reason not to try it!   You’ll be pleasantly surprised.  Stop by one of our many locations today!  We think you’ll have a new favorite craving!

Human Bean Ranked #2 as National Coffee Franchise

The Human Bean was ranked as the No. 2 national coffee franchise behind Dunkin’ Donuts in the specialty coffee world according to Entrepreneur magazine.  This was on it’s 38th annual Top 500 franchiser list.  Overall, the Human Bean ranked #157 out of all franchise types.  A recent article in the Medford Mail Tribune details the history and rapid growth of the popular drive-thru coffee franchise on a national level.

national coffee franchise

The Human Bean’s first drive-thru coffee franchise location was in Ashland, Oregon in 1998.  Nowadays, the drive-thru coffee market in Oregon is saturated with little margin for growth.  In a five-mile radius here there are about 45 drive-thru coffee locations where as in other locations, like Reno NV, there are only about six.  Also in many states there is no such thing as drive-thru coffee locations.  Therefore there is plenty of room for growth for the Human Bean as a national coffee franchise!

National Coffee Franchise Growth

Currently the Human Bean is in 11 states with 68 locations and sales are about $45 million annually.  At last count, Human Bean grinds about 400,000 pounds of coffee and espresso each year.  The Human Bean anticipates a total of 85 locations by the end of 2017.  There are several new locations opening every month with their two newest in Nampa, ID and Odessa, TX.  The goal by the end of next year is to have a total of 100 locations nation-wide.

The initial franchise investment runs between $174,000 and $669,000.  The Human Bean recently sold a nine-store market in the Phoenix, AZ area with the first one going in to Mesa.  Sacramento, CA and new locations in Colorado, Idaho, Texas are also in the works.

drive thru

There are currently 10 people in the Medford Corporate office handling administration, equipment support, vendor support and marketing.  Overall, the Corporate company has 160 employees.

In addition to being a growing company, the Human Bean is also a humanitarian company.  They have a direct coffee sourcing program called Farm Friendly Direct.  Beans are sourced from Africa, Latin America, or Asia and they have long standing relationships with their growers.  They are currently helping coffee farmers in Colombia develop their own clean drinking water wells.

Human Bean Celebrates Earth Day with Reusable Bag Giveaway

Human Bean Celebrates Earth Day every year with a reusable shopping bag giveaway.  Earth Day is on April, 22nd.  We will be showing customer appreciation by giving away reusable bags on Friday, April 21st and have been doing this since 2011.  We estimate that we have given away 90,000 of them and also plan to give away about 15,000 more this  year.

Human Bean Celebrates Earth Day

Why Use Reusable Shopping Bags?

A simple way to be kinder to our earth is to use reusable shopping bags. Many communities, including the city of Ashland locally, have banned the use of disposable plastic shopping bags.  This is due to the damage they can cause to our environment and wildlife. A plastic bag can take from 15-1,000 years to break down depending on environment.  Millions of birds, turtles and other sea animals die each year from ingesting the plastic waste that doesn’t make it into landfills. Reusable shopping bags can replace disposable plastic bags.  They are also made of recycled materials and typically have a lifespan equal to that of more than 700 plastic bags. When worn out, reusable bags can then be recycled. Additionally many stores now give discounts to customers that bring in their own shopping bags.  Plus they now come in many fashionable and cute shapes and prints, like ours!

How the Human Bean Celebrates Earth Day Every Day

The Human Bean tries to extend their earth friendly practices globally as well as through their Farm Friendly Direct program.  This is their direct-trade coffee sourcing program.  They work directly with the farmers that grow their coffee.  Therefore they can pay them at or above market prices.  They also allocate additional funds for community projects such as: building water systems, school and community centers and facilitating earth friendly soil, water and farming practices.  You can learn more about The Human Bean and Farm Friendly Direct here!

Human Bean Rockstar Flavors – Who won?

The contest coincided with the college basketball tournament and started with the Elite 8 top selling Human Bean Rockstar flavors.  Customers then had a chance to vote in a survey for their favorite and also win prizes by doing so.  We then narrowed the pool down to the Final Four favorite Rockstar flavors.  These were Original, Lemonade Recovery, Blue Raspberry and Punched Fruit Punch.  The voting was close!  But the winner was Blue Raspberry!  A total of 10 prize packages were given away.  They contained Rockstar swag like t-shirts and hats and soccer balls.  Additionally there were Human Bean mugs and gift cards.

We had a lot of fun with this Giveaway and plan to do many more with other vendors in the future!  Stay tuned and watch our Facebook page for announcements.

Two new Human Bean Locations to open and be the first in their states of Ohio & Texas!

We have new Human Bean locations opening all over the US every month this year! We are so excited we are able to continue growing and adding to the Human Bean family!  Canton, Ohio and Odessa, Texas are the locations of our two newest drive thru coffee franchise locations!

New Human Bean Locations to open in Canton, Ohio on March, 7th!

Human Bean Locations

Partners in this location are Southern Oregon Owners, Moni Peterson & Dr. Mark Peterson along with Moni’s brother, Ron Watson, who lives in Canton. Ron says they had been brainstorming on a franchise to open in Southern Oregon for years but nothing had proved to be that appealing.

One day on his annual summer visit to the Rogue Valley they were sitting outside one of our many Human Bean locations for drive-thru coffee. They were talking while drinking their Human Bean coffee.  Then it dawned on them that maybe it would be a good idea to instead open a franchise in Canton, Ohio.  They would be the first to bring the Human Bean brand to the state. It turned out Dr. Mark Peterson had gone to school with one of the founders of Human Bean.  After getting in touch and learning more about the franchise, and meeting the other owners, the rest is history!

Choosing the Location

Choosing the location proved to be just as effortless. A small green square of land in the middle of a popular shopping Plaza had just been listed and met all the criteria. Ron thinks it will be a great Human Bean location because of all the traffic. There are 3 entrances/exits, 1 with a traffic light. It is also less than 1 mile from the Expressway and 24,000 cars pass by this location every day. Inside the Plaza is one of the most active Planet Fitness locations in Ohio, as well as a Sky Zone Jump center and many other attractions.

Ron has a background in Sales & Marketing & Graphic Art which will prove to be an asset in running Human Bean locations. They have plans to open 2 or 3 or maybe, even more, Human Bean locations in the area in the near future. Currently, they are looking at a location in Alliance, about 15 miles away.  Theyalso have their eyes on a couple of locations in North Canton about 5 miles away.

Ron says the process of working with the Human Bean to open his first franchise has been great. “A potential franchise owner called me for a referral the other day and I had nothing but good things to say,” he says.

New Location to open in Odessa, Texas in May

Human Bean Locations, Drive Thru Coffee Franchise
Owner Maurice Torano sums it up perfectly by saying, “At Human Bean it’s about the customer – it’s that simple and appealing!” Maurice says he always admired the Human Bean, but didn’t really know much about them. Upon learning more, he says, “Human Bean matches my style and values so much better than the other franchises.” He finds this to be the main difference that sets the Human Bean apart, “The customer service ethos is unmatched! It’s not about how to order, how to pronounce something, how cool the barista is or how urbane and up-to-the-second their image is, it’s about the customer.”

Maurice’s Background

Maurice’s background is in commercial and real estate development in and around Southern Oregon and Northern California.  He found his way to North Dakota and re-invented himself in the oil and gas world when the real-estate market was hit in 2007. Maurice managed large scale projects for two major oil and gas service companies, eventually landing in West Texas. He noticed there were only 2-3 Starbucks for a population of over 300,000 people upon moving to Midland-Odessa in 2012. He saw the need for a drive-thru coffee franchise like the Human Bean.

Maurice is looking to open his first franchise location in Odessa on East University Boulevard, in early May. He plans to open additional Human Bean locations in Midland and Odessa before years end.

We are thrilled at the Human Bean to introduce ourselves to the states of Ohio and Texas! You can learn more about becoming a franchise owner and bringing the Human Bean to your area. Visit our website at: https://thehumanbean.com/franchise/

The Human Bean is a Favorite Place to get Coffee

And in case you don’t know…here is just a little bit about The Human Bean.
With a passion for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998. The demand for convenient, quality coffee & espresso grew and soon after opening our original location in Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Southern Oregon. The Human Bean quickly became a favorite place to get coffee because of our friendly and experienced baristas (just like Justine!) and offering the highest quality ingredients.

Our commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led us to franchising The Human Bean’s brand and system in 2002. We are proud to announce that The Human Bean has expanded to 65 locations in nine states. We expect to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand.
