The sooner we can help our franchise owners open, the sooner they can begin sharing their love of coffee with their customers and building their local business.

As part of your coffee franchise cost, you receive the Just Love Coffee Cafe development team’s full support. We begin with your Letter of Intent and guide you as you make your site selection and take on construction, training staff, the grand opening, ongoing marketing, and day-to-day operations.

Offering a smaller, down-to-earth menu also helps our franchise owners lower their cafe franchise costs. Quality control for delicious and crave-worthy ingredients can be easier, and there’s no need to maintain a large inventory.

Wondering how much does it cost to start a coffee shop?

 Just Love Coffee Cafe is designed to be a relatively easy franchise to open, and it may surprise people to learn the initial investment can frequently be lower than other coffee franchise costs. 

The idea for Just Love Coffee Cafe was born out of love, not just for coffee but for families. Initially an online coffee service, Just Love Coffee Cafe began as a for-profit endeavor to offer financial assistance to couples undertaking the often expensive adoption process. 

But we also aim to help our franchise owners connect with their customers in many ways by creating an inviting atmosphere where people can relax for as long as they’d like with a cup of coffee, a good book, a laptop, or friends.

The Just Love Coffee Cafe Experience

At Just Love Coffee Cafe, we want to create the type of place where our customers are comfortable and surrounded by a fun, creative, and friendly space, all with a lower coffee franchise cost for our franchise owners. Our customers know that they can be themselves in our cafes, they won’t be rushed through their order or dining experience, and they can truly make themselves at home.

Part of the customer experience at Just Love Coffee Cafe involves a menu unlike any other. In addition to our specialty beverages and hand-roasted coffee blends, we have built an all-day menu with a twist: nearly everything edible is made with waffle irons. 

This distinctive style of cooking streamlines the size of our locations so our franchise owners don’t require a large kitchen or a significant footprint. In fact, Just Love Coffee Cafe franchises average around 1,800 square feet, keeping the coffee franchise cost controlled.

The menu at Just Love Coffee Cafe is an experience in its own right. With omelets made on a waffle iron, waffles that are more like desserts, and imaginative sandwiches and salads for lunchtime fare, we have delectable food with a twist that can keep customers coming back time and again.

Without a full kitchen, our owners can easily run their Just Love Coffee Cafe location with a smaller staff to help keep the coffee franchise costs low without sacrificing revenue streams.

The Coffee Market is Hotter Than Ever

Today’s cafe customers are looking for more than their favorite latte or cappuccino. They’re looking for tasteful blends, delicate or robust flavors, and more specialty types of coffee than they ever have in the past.

Americans drink about 400 million cups of coffee every day. That’s a lot of coffee, and it can be a lot of opportunity for the Just Love Coffee Cafe franchise owner looking for a low cost to open a coffee shop.

What’s more, specialty coffees, like the type that are hand-roasted at Just Love Coffee Cafe locations, appeal to more than 30 million Americans daily. The low coffee shop startup cost of a Just Love Coffee Cafe location can help you become part of the coffee business, with a reasonable initial investment to join an industry projected to grow 33% by 2030.  

If you’re looking for an investment in a market with the potential for rewarding returns that doesn’t require a large outlay of capital, the coffee franchise cost of Just Love Coffee Cafe may be right for you. 

We offer lower franchise fees, smaller building footprints, cooking strategies that can be easier to maintain in a smaller space with fewer employees, and a high level of support for your onboarding, opening, and operating needs. A Just Love Coffee Cafe franchise has the potential to grow while being a fun and exciting way to connect with your community.

Just Love Coffee Cafe’s Love for Community

It’s not only about our low coffee franchise cost. At the heart of the Just Love Coffee Cafe story is not just a love for coffee, but one for the communities we serve. 

While our founder, Rob Webb, began Just Love Coffee Cafe with an intention to help couples build a family through adoption, we embrace the range of causes and charities our franchise owners support. We know that when you give to your community, your community gives back. 

Each of our Just Love Coffee Cafe locations has opened its doors and our hearts in support of different causes, events, and sharing opportunities.

Through this community-building, we’ve truly found what makes our customers, our franchise owners, and our communities special.

We are thrilled to be a part of this process in each new location and in every relationship we build.
