Breakfast and other options appeal to patrons throughout the day, bringing them in, keeping them longer and boosting ticket totals
Convenience is the watchword for people who want their coffee fix and want it fast. That’s why the demand for specialty coffee shops has never been higher. Coffee-only venues, however, can’t capitalize on another consumer demand: food. A Just Love Coffee franchise can, however, and that’s why the brand continues to grow across the United States.
“While many people want to run in, grab their coffee and head out to their next destination, lots of others want to grab breakfast, lunch or a snack,” explains D.J. Smith, Marketing Director. “Just Love’s fun, accessible and all-day menu adds to our outstanding coffee selections to meet the needs of both consumer sets.”
Capturing the underserved AM eatery segment
While other brands do offer food, it’s usually heavy on the dessert side, or it’s prepackaged sandwiches and salads. Every Just Love Coffee franchise, on the other hand, has a wide array of sandwiches, salads and entrees that works for breakfast or any other meal.
“People like to eat breakfast out once a week, sometimes more often than that,” Smith says. “They want to find a place where they can get great food, and also their coffee beverage of choice. A Just Love handles both requests and also gives them a relaxing, friendly place to hang out while they enjoy their meal. That sets us apart in a big way from other specialty coffee brands.”
Food offerings lead to higher ticket totals
In addition, having a menu that works throughout the day means that someone coming in just for a coffee might opt to get lunch, as well, or to pick something up to take home. The result is an expanded opportunity to boost every ticket total all day long.
“Just Love’s coffee and food menus are designed to work well together, so that someone who’s looking at one can find something equally tempting on the other,” Smith says. “By offering coffee and food, and doing it in a way that’s organic and planned, Just Love gives every franchise owner the opportunity to see a steady stream of business and revenue from open to close every day.”
After the launch of two successful locations in Brentwood, Tennessee, and Nashville, one of the hottest cities in the nation, Just Love Coffee is primed for expansion in 2019. Led by an executive team with proven experience in growing franchise systems, Just Love Coffee 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.
