Hard Bean Coffee offers a complete, turnkey package to help
you launch your own coffee café. We have built over 100 independently owned and
operated coffee shops across America over the past 20 years. We are not a
franchise. There are no up-front franchise fees or royalties, just a one-time
fee to help you start your café business.
We love good coffee and the security of owning our own
business. We see the marriage of the two as an opportunity to help potential
owners build a low-stress, lifestyle business that allows them to put their
ideas and energy to work for themselves in their own community. Make friends
and offer great products and services while serving world- class coffee, tea
and good conversation!
Hard Bean Cafés offer a warm and inviting atmosphere and
offer specialty coffees, teas, blended drinks and light fare for breakfast and
lunch. The typical café size is 1,200 to 1,600 square feet, with seating for
approximately 40 customers. Our cafés include a meeting room available for
church groups, networking groups, etc., and quickly become the local gathering
place in their community.

A flexible business
How do you want to run your business? What is your
management style? Do you want to be hands-on and involved in day-to-day
operations, or do you want to grow the business with good employees so you can
spend your time promoting it in your community? Owning one of our coffee shops
puts the choice firmly in your hands.
Our lower entry cost makes it easier to consider adding
additional profit centers over time. Some synergistic concepts that have been
co-branded successfully by our café owners include a cigar store, a bookstore
and a florist store. Offering additional products and services is especially
welcomed in smaller towns, which are excellent markets for our café concept.
The comprehensive services offered under our Hard Bean Café
program are designed to assist you in realizing your dream of owning a coffee
shop. We will share our industry knowledge and years of experience throughout
the entire process, all the way from pre-opening guidance to post-opening support
as you launch your café.
