Strong all-day menu, high-quality coffee and family friendly vibe
build a strong fan base and potential for profit
Just Love Coffee Cafe Franchise combines two popular concepts — third-wave coffee and a day-long cafe — to outshine the typical coffee shop that doesn’t offer much beyond pastries and grab-and-go breakfast sandwiches. As a result, our franchisees report higher than average ticket sales when compared with competing coffee shop owners.
American consumers are seeking out the cafe culture popular in Europe for years. People long for a community spot that serves high-quality coffee and food in a family-friendly environment where students, parents and business people can stop in throughout the afternoon and evening. Just Love Coffee Cafe’s roast master carefully chooses the beans behind all of our coffee drinks and our customers are served by friendly and knowledgeable baristas. A one-of-a-kind cooking technique that utilizes a waffle iron and an all-day menu keeps customers coming in long after breakfast hours, which isn’t the typical business model you’ll find at most coffee shops.
Just Love Coffee Cafe is primed for expansion in new markets such as Texas and Michigan after launching several successful locations in the booming metropolitan area of Nashville, Tennessee. Led by an executive team with proven experience in growing franchise systems, Just Love Coffee Cafe is an ideal investment for new and experienced entrepreneurs who want to get in on the ground floor of the most exciting business opportunity in the $12 billion U.S. coffee shop industry.
“There’s a growing cafe culture in this nation as people crave great coffee, food and community and our customers know they can rely on us for quality and consistency on all three fronts,” says Rob Webb, CEO and founder of Just Love Coffee Cafe. “Customers typically fall in love with our high-quality coffee first and then they quickly discover how amazing our food is. Our food menu is gaining such popularity, in fact, that food sales are outpacing coffee sales in many cases.”
We’ve mastered the art of coffee and a low-cost food business
Just Love Coffee Cafe offers entrepreneurs a unique business that is both a high-quality coffee shop as well as a food business, but at a lower cost than most restaurants because of our simple business model that doesn’t require a full kitchen. As a result, Just Love Coffee Cafe food costs and staffing needs are lower than the typical food business.
“There aren’t a whole lot of coffee shops that offer an all-day food menu instead of a limited offering of pastries, bagels or other smaller grab-and-go options, and certainly none that I can think of that cooks their food in a waffle iron,” says DJ Smith, Marketing & Creative Director of Just Love Coffee Cafe. “It’s been wildly successful. Our average ticket prices have increased significantly to $12.50 to $14.50 per customer.”
Our franchisees don’t need to maintain a full kitchen, which reduces startup and operating costs and requires less staff, as well as allows investors to be flexible in their location.
We continue to roll out high-quality, creative menu items
Webb knew upon launching Just Love Coffee Cafe that the food needed to be as high caliber as the hand-picked coffee beans and hand-roasted coffee. Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention. Founder Webb’s original location was too small for a full kitchen, so rather than not offer customers food he improvised and created an entire menu based on the waffle iron. Whether they order a signature Just Love Womelete, a Spicy Chicken Waffle or a S’Mores Waffle, customers know their food is made fresh to order and with that special Just Love waffle technique that’s completely unique in the competitive coffee shop market.
“Food can drive all sorts of daypart sales, including afternoon and evenings. We are going to be introducing new items such as the Chicken Quesadilla, Falafel Wrap, Chili & Cornbread Waffle, along with new desserts such as the Fruity Pebbles & Cream Waffle, Red Velvet Waffle, and coffee shakes. These desserts perfectly complement our coffee and are a must to enjoy after one of our tasty entrees,” says Kevin Bauerle, Director of Franchise Development.
