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‚Äôs 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, ‚ÄúTrackTown USA‚ÄĚ, 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. ‚ÄúI have a love affair with this city,‚ÄĚ says Karcher.¬†¬†“We feel so fortunate to open the very first Human Bean here”. The culture of The Human Bean brand is ‚Äúkind, genuine and fun.‚ÄĚ¬†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.¬†‚ÄúThe drive-thru lets¬†our customers stay inside their warm cars, get their favorite drinks quickly, and still gives us time to connect with them!‚ÄĚ¬†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,‚ÄĚ says Karcher.
Karcher‚Äôs goal for The Human Bean is to expand the brand everywhere she can.¬† She also wants to focus on the Eugene area. ‚ÄúOnce we find the sites, I will do everything I can to make it happen,‚ÄĚ says Karcher.
“I am blessed to help start and end people’s day with a positive vibe & delicious drink.”
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.
