Another New Location Opens in Lake Havasu, AZ – The Human Bean shows no Signs of Slowing Down!

Coffee consumption continues to grow, but this is not the black drip coffee of the past! One third of the population drinks a gourmet coffee or espresso beverage each day and drive-thru options only continue to grow in popularity due to our fast paced and on-the-go lifestyles. Although in a hurry, consumers are not willing to sacrifice quality for convenience which makes The Human Bean’s award winning Farm-Friendly Direct coffee and high quality products the perfect combination.
Headquartered in Oregon, The Human Bean has opened six new coffee franchises in the past six months in five different states (Missouri, Oregon, Idaho, Colorado & Arizona). The latest of which was the third location to open in the Lake Havasu area November, 14th. This location brought the total Human Bean count to 64.havasu-pic
Brian & Juls Baumkirchner, owners of all three Havasu locations, said they came into the role of Human Bean Franchisee when they took over the first location at 633 North Lake Havasu Avenue in 2007. The Baumkirchners saw the potential for this location to be the bustling coffee drive-thru destination that it is today. Their other two locations are on South McCulloch and now North Palo Verde on Highway 95. Between the three locations they are able to provide employment for 30 employees plus 1 handyman, 1 machine maintenance person and 1 bookkeeper.
Brain Baumkirchner said they chose this new location because many of their customers had constantly asked for it. “The North side of town doesn’t have very many business establishments for the residents and tourists alike. Additionally this location has higher traffic when compared to the two other locations.” Couple that with the fact that it has a double drive through and ample vehicle cueing; it is designed to provide the very best customer experience.
The Baumkirchners also have letters of intent for additional locations signed in nearby cities. Baumkirchner credits this growth to the brand supporting their franchisees and says, “The Human Bean Team has become like a family for us.” Human Bean co-founder, Dan Hawkins, states “Brian and Juls are phenomenal operators and it is a joy to get to work with them. They have a passion for creating the very best customer experience and the results are really something special!”
Baumkirchner sums it up nicely when he says, “It’s amazing to be a part of a quality brand and system that grew to 3 stores with proper management. Like I always tell people, ‘If the coffee wasn’t superior and service was sub-par, we wouldn’t exist!’”
The kind of growth Baumkirchner has experienced speaks for the brand as a whole and the Human Bean shows no signs of slowing down on growth with plans to open at least 19 more franchise locations by the end of 2017 throughout the US bringing the total to 82.human-bean-havasu-3
