PJ's Coffee of New Orleans - Franchise Information

Discover the Difference One Cup of Coffee Can Make
We are excited about your interest in our coffee franchise opportunity. As PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans continues to expand around the globe, we are looking for passionate and motivated entrepreneurs to join our strong batch of franchisees. Similar to the art of coffee-making, the success of any franchise is dependent upon the franchise development process. Fortunately, we have discovered the perfect methods for both.

Our team is proud to offer an opportunity unlike any other, where you can serve premium beverages and freshly baked goods in a welcoming atmosphere. The connections our franchisees are able to make within their communities play a big role in both their success and their love for what they do. They aren’t looking to transfer or sell their businesses – they are looking to grow and expand with PJ’s.

Our Story
PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans was founded in 1978 by Phyllis Jordan, a pioneer in the coffee industry who embraced high-quality beans, superior roasting methods, and a pure passion for the art of coffee-making. Today, our franchise coffee shop is recognized for harvesting, roasting, and personally crafting gourmet drinks using only the top 1% of Arabica beans and delicious organic tea. In addition, our selection of fresh breakfast pastries makes for the perfect beverage pairing.

As a company known for its coffee, we utilize a unique brewing technique for our iced coffee. Our special cold-drip process helps to protect the flavor and strength of our brews by maximizing the taste and minimizing the acidity. This process was pioneered by our very own Phyllis Jordan, and it is still used to brew all of our famous Cold Brew Iced Coffee™ today.

Enjoy Lifestyle Freedom
As you evaluate our brand, you will discover that our company culture allows franchisees to enjoy an exciting and fulfilling lifestyle. While a hot cup of our fresh coffee stimulates conversation, business, and success, we are constantly looking for new ways to innovate our methods and maintain our loyal customer base. Our inspiration and passion for creating a gourmet cup of coffee trickles down to our franchisees, managers, baristas, and customers.
