Human Bean Opens 75th Location in Eugene, OR

Human Bean opens 75th location in Eugene, OR, on Tuesday May 8, 2018. The double drive thru window building is located on Chad Drive just off Coburg Rd.

The new Eugene location is owned and operated by Joe & Cathleen Karcher and their daughter, Lauren Karcher of JCK Restaurants.  “We are so excited to be expanding the brand in our hometown! We love The Human Bean so much and what the company stands for and are so grateful for the opportunity to grow in this community,” says Lauren Karcher. The Karchers also own three other locations in Salem, Keizer and Eugene as well.  They are planning on opening a 5th location in Springfield soon.

Eugene’s 2nd Human Bean is located at 2809 Chad Drive, Eugene, OR 97408. Their hours will be 5am – 9pm daily. Their phone is 541-515-6161.  You can find a full list of all Human Bean locations here.

The Human Bean’s commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led us to franchising The Human Bean’s brand and system in 2002. We are also proud to announce that with the opening of this location The Human Bean has now expanded to 75 locations in ten states. 62 of those being franchised locations and 13 being corporate locations. We expect to continue this growth and have plans to open several more locations in the near future.

New Human Bean Eugene Location

The Human Bean Eugene will be opening soon!

The first Human Bean location opened in Ashland, Oregon in 1998.  But it didn’t take long for the brand to build a reputation for excellent coffee & customer service. The Human Bean soon expanded to surrounding cities and across Oregon.  This was done through corporate development and approved franchises. Today, The Human Bean has grown to 60 locations in 9 states.  The majority are still operating in its home state of Oregon. We are also excited to bring The Human Bean to another city in Oregon this month; Eugene, we know you’re ready for us!

About Eugene, Oregon

Eugene is Oregon’s second largest city following Portland with over 160,000 residents. It is home to the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!).  It also earned the title of, “TrackTown USA”, after being the birthplace of athletic mega-brand Nike and hosting multiple Olympic trials.

Bringing The Human Bean to “TrackTown USA” is Eugene native, Lauren Karcher. “I have a love affair with this city,” says Karcher.  “We feel so fortunate to open the very first Human Bean here”. The culture of The Human Bean brand is “kind, genuine and fun.” The Human Bean also strives to give back locally through fundraisers and sponsorships. The Human Bean will be a natural fit for the community-minded city of Eugene.

Along with the brand, Eugene residents can expect many benefits from The Human Bean’s drive-thru design. The Human Bean features a double-sided drive thru.  This fosters both convenience and customer service. “The drive-thru lets our customers stay inside their warm cars, get their favorite drinks quickly, and still gives us time to connect with them!” says Karcher.

Karcher chose to build The Human Bean Eugene franchise after visiting many locations around Oregon. “While I am very much hooked on the drinks, the culture and the people of Human Bean is really why I fell in love,” says Karcher.

Karcher’s goal for The Human Bean is to expand the brand everywhere she can.  She also wants to focus on the Eugene area. “Once we find the sites, I will do everything I can to make it happen,” says Karcher.

“I am blessed to help start and end people’s day with a positive vibe & delicious drink.”
-Lauren Karcher

The Human Bean corporate team is elated to welcome Karcher and the Human Bean Eugene to our franchise family.  We can’t wait to see the successes to come from the new Human Bean Eugene location.
