Millions of Americans wake up with a cup of joe on a daily basis. This strong demand for java makes the coffee industry the billion dollar juggernaut that it is. Need inspiration for a coffee franchise to invest in? Consider Southern Grounds. The Southern Grounds franchise is a coffee business that is on a mission to nourish and inspire communities. As a franchisee, you can appreciate the franchisor's dedication to producing great products while also being aware of its carbon footprint. To disrupt the coffee industry, Southern Grounds challenges the way that coffee houses are supplied by reducing plastic consumption. Additionally, the coffee franchise also demands sustainable farming practices from suppliers and reduced environmental impact from vendors. To put its money where its mouth is, Southern Grounds has implemented green building products in its building and interior design. With several successful locations across Florida, the coffee franchise is looking to expand with franchise partners. As a franchisee, you benefit from a proven model, support and training, and multiple streams of revenue including online orders and gift cards.
In terms of support and training, you can expect an initial training program that details everything that you need to know about running the business properly.
