The Human Bean Eugene will be opening soon!
The first Human Bean location opened in Ashland, Oregon in 1998. But it didn’t take long for the brand to build a reputation for excellent coffee & customer service. The Human Bean soon expanded to surrounding cities and across Oregon. This was done through corporate development and approved franchises. Today, The Human Bean has grown to 60 locations in 9 states. The majority are still operating in its home state of Oregon. We are also excited to bring The Human Bean to another city in Oregon this month; Eugene, we know you’re ready for us!
About Eugene, Oregon
Eugene is Oregon’s second largest city following Portland with over 160,000 residents. It is home to the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!). It also earned the title of, “TrackTown USA”, after being the birthplace of athletic mega-brand Nike and hosting multiple Olympic trials.
Bringing The Human Bean to “TrackTown USA” is Eugene native, Lauren Karcher. “I have a love affair with this city,” says Karcher. “We feel so fortunate to open the very first Human Bean here”. The culture of The Human Bean brand is “kind, genuine and fun.” The Human Bean also strives to give back locally through fundraisers and sponsorships. The Human Bean will be a natural fit for the community-minded city of Eugene.
Along with the brand, Eugene residents can expect many benefits from The Human Bean’s drive-thru design. The Human Bean features a double-sided drive thru. This fosters both convenience and customer service. “The drive-thru lets our customers stay inside their warm cars, get their favorite drinks quickly, and still gives us time to connect with them!” says Karcher.
Karcher chose to build The Human Bean Eugene franchise after visiting many locations around Oregon. “While I am very much hooked on the drinks, the culture and the people of Human Bean is really why I fell in love,” says Karcher.
Karcher’s goal for The Human Bean is to expand the brand everywhere she can. She also wants to focus on the Eugene area. “Once we find the sites, I will do everything I can to make it happen,” says Karcher.
“I am blessed to help start and end people’s day with a positive vibe & delicious drink.”
The Human Bean corporate team is elated to welcome Karcher and the Human Bean Eugene to our franchise family. We can’t wait to see the successes to come from the new Human Bean Eugene location.
