The Human Bean is proud to announce that we were ranked #157 in the â€ś2017 Franchise 500â€ť by Entrepreneur! Entrepreneurâ€™s 38th Annual Franchise 500 is described as the worldâ€™s best and most comprehensive franchise ranking and states that those franchises honored are recognized for their exceptional performance in areas such as unit growth, financial strength, stability and brand power! We jumped 341 spots up on this list since 2013 which says a lot about the growth and future of our company and we are honored .
The Human Bean was founded 18 years ago in 1998 and the first location was opened in Ashland, Oregon. Our commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led us to franchising The Human Beanâ€™s brand and system in 2002. We are proud to announce that The Human Bean has expanded to 65 locations in nine states, 52 of those being franchised locations and 13 being corporate locations. We expect to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand.
We are expecting to open 20 new drive thru coffee franchise locations throughout the nation this year, which might make you start wondering how you can become a Human Bean Franchisee! Moving forward, the brand will stay true to the successful operations on which The Human Bean was founded. With exceptional products, attractive and efficient facilities and exceptionally trained and qualified teams, we deliver the very best experience possible to assure we remain the consumers’ brand of choice.
What makes The Human Bean different than nearly all other franchises is that we do not charge percentage-of-sales royalty or marketing fees. We earn revenues from bulk sales of coffee and other supplies. At The Human Bean, we work as a team with our franchisees to assure they have every tool necessary to operate successful drive-thus. Our goal is for Human Bean franchisees to enjoy the returns from their hard work and investment, while receiving the benefits of being part of a family of successful operators.
Plus we have superior high-quality coffee products that are obtained through our Farm Friendly Direct trade program which strives to make a positive difference through direct, socially responsible, coffee sourcing.
