There's nothing quite like beginning your day with a great cup of coffee. Americans spend billions on coffee annually, and entrepreneurs have cashed in on this pretty universal love of java. If opening a coffee franchise interests you, then consider the Cattle Dog Coffee Roaster. The coffee brand was founded in 2008 by Stephen Dorst, who was very passionate about providing people in Citrus County, Fla., with coffee. He even built the counters, coffee bar, and cabinets by himself at the original Hernando store! The coffee brand was named after his Blue Heeler cattle dog, Barney. Unfortunately, Dorst passed away two days after the opening of his location due to a blood clot. A month later, James and Heather Cook got to know the Dorst family and then took over the business. In addition to coffee, the brand's menu includes sandwiches, baked goods, and more. As a franchisee, you benefit from an exclusive territory, which decreases your competition in the area. You will be the only representative of the coffee brand in your area.
You will be provided with great support and training. In terms of support and training, franchise owners will have an initial training program that consists of 28 hours of classroom training and 40 hours of on-the-job learning. This comes as part of the initial investment. You will be assisted with the site selection and grand opening of your location. Your support and training is ongoing. There are also third-party financing options to help you open your dream coffee business.
