The Right Roast - Who We Are:

The Coffee Beanery opened its first stores in the United States in 1976, before the American public knew the term "specialty coffee." In the 24 years that have followed, the Coffee Beanery continues to build its brand and franchise organization on the principles of time-tested and honored traditions and values.

Exceptional coffee, a warm relaxing environment, and a corporate culture that embraces its franchisees with every opportunity to succeed exemplify these values. Today, the Coffee Beanery has over 200 locations throughout the U.S. and is recognized as an industry leader for its unique family business approach, corporate culture and commitment to quality.

You can sense the difference the moment you arrive at our 45,000 square-foot Flushing, Michigan, facility which houses our corporate headquarters, production facility where all of our hand-selected beans are roasted, flavored and packaged, and our warehousing and distribution center. The abundant aroma of fresh roasted coffee surrounds you in a professional environment where every Coffee Beanery team member is committed to the same core values that our founders, JoAnne and Julius Shaw, established in the early 1970s.
