Unlike nearly all other franchises, we do not charge royalty 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 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 coffee 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. Click here to learn more. This innovative single-sided design paired with the order station increases flexibility when choosing site locations.
