With a passion for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998. The demand for convenient, quality coffee & espresso grew and soon after opening our original location in Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Southern Oregon. The Human Bean quickly established a reputation for having friendly and experienced baristas and offering the highest quality ingredients.
Our commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led us to franchising The Human Bean’s brand and system in 2002. We are proud to announce that The Human Bean has expanded to 79 locations in ten states, 66 of those being franchised locations and 13 being corporate locations. We expect to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand.
The Human Bean Drive-Thru Franchise
We expect additional growth through approved franchisees throughout the nation. Moving forward, the brand will stay true to the successful operations on which The Human Bean was founded. With exceptional products, attractive and efficient facilities and an exceptionally trained and qualified team, we have the tools needed to be the consumers' brand of choice.
The Human Bean strives to capitalize on the growing premium beverage market.
Join us in providing consistent & delicious products with exceptional customer service.
What Makes Us Better
Unlike nearly all other franchises, we do not charge percentage-of-sales royalty or marketing fees. We earn revenues from bulk sales of coffee and other supplies ordered from our franchised locations.
At The Human Bean, we work as a team with our franchisees; our franchisees don’t work for us by paying high royalties and marketing fees that take away from their bottom line.
Our goal is for Human Bean franchisees to enjoy the returns from their investment while receiving the benefits of being part of The Human Bean franchise.
Our building designs aren’t limited to double-sided drive-thrus. We offer a single-sided design with a menu board and order station that maintains the speed of our double-sided locations. In fact, our newest corporate store uses this design and we have found that it increases accuracy. This innovative single-sided design paired with the order station increases flexibility when choosing site locations.
Having successfully managed several corporate locations ourselves, The Human Bean franchise team delivers the experience and expertise to assist you from start to finish in opening your own The Human Bean Espresso Drive-Thru business.
