The world loves coffee. It is a billion dollar business that employs countless people and serves billions of cups annually. A way to get your piece of this booming industry is to invest in the Dunn Brothers Coffee franchise. The brand was founded by Ed and Dan Dunn in St. Paul, Minn., in 1987. The first Dunn Bros Coffee franchise was awarded to Chris Eilers and Skip Fay in 1994. In 1998, the Dunn brothers purchased the rights to franchise the system themselves. The franchise's stores are located primarily throughout the Midwest. The brand differentiates itself from the competition by roasting its coffee in-store daily. They make the coffee right in front of the customers so they can see how their coffee came to be. In addition to learning how to roast coffee, you’ll also have an opportunity to visit and meet with the farmers in the countries from which the brand buys its beans.
In terms of support and training, the franchise owner can expect assistance with site selection and construction; a two-week training program at the headquarters in Minneapolis, Minn., and in your location when it's ready; a consultant to work with you to grow the business; and marketing materials to help get customers to your store. The franchise also leverages its purchasing power to provide quality products at competitive prices. The brand sells frozen beverages, baked goods, soups and sandwiches. The brand's stores are often located in the same shopping areas as its competition. Looking into investing in the Dunn Brothers Coffee franchise today.
