Having operated successful drive-thrus for over 21 years, The Human Bean team offers the experience and expertise to assist you from start to finish.  

Once we have approved a location, we complete preliminary site plans to assure proper layout for the most efficient functionality. Our building designs come in both single and double-sided window configurations. We offer a modular building options or we can provide base building plans for a local general contractor to build.

The Human Bean doesn't charge an on-going royalty like most franchises.  This has allowed franchisees the potential to earn higher net incomes as a result of less money coming off the top.  

In addition, minimal overhead costs and efficiently built espresso drive-thrus allow greater flexibility to reinvest in each location leading to higher average unit volumes.

Through successfully operating our 13 high volume corporate espresso drive-thrus, The Human Bean franchise system is highly refined in drink preparation, specialty training and overall drive-thru operations.
