With a passion for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998.
The demand for convenient, quality coffee & espresso grew and soon after opening our original location in Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Southern Oregon. The Human Bean quickly established a reputation for having friendly and experienced baristas and offering the highest quality ingredients.
Unlike nearly all other franchises, we do not charge percentage-of-sales royalty or marketing 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 and marketing fees 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 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.
