The Human Bean was rated #185 on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list for 2020. The Franchise 500 claims to be the definitive ranking of the year’s strongest franchises. This list has been generated for forty years now. The franchise industry is still going strong and is more competitive than ever. More than 1,000 companies apply every year for this ranking. Those that rose to the top reveal the latest trends as well as the companies that continue to evolve to keep going strong year after year. The Human Bean coffee franchise is proud to continue to move up in rank on this list every year.
Unlike nearly all other franchises, The Human Bean does not charge percentage-of-sales royalty or marketing fees. They earn revenues from bulk sales of coffee and other supplies ordered from our franchised locations. The Human Bean works as a team with franchisees and they don’t pay high royalty and marketing fees that take away from their bottom line.
A commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led to franchising The Human Bean’s brand and system in 2002. The Human Bean has now expanded to 97 locations in ten states, 84 of those being franchised locations and 13 being corporate locations. The Human Bean brand expects to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to goals for this exceptional brand.
