Hard Bean Cafe Franchise
Hard Bean Cafe FranchiseWe are coffee business specialists offering a complete, turnkey package to assist our owners in opening their own Cafe. We are not a franchise, do not charge royalties and do not impose restrictions how the business should be run. Hard Bean Cafe's offer a warm and inviting atmosphere and offer specialty coffees, teas, blended drinks and light fare for breakfast and lunch. The typical Cafe size is 1200 to 1600 square feet, with seating for approximately 40 customers. Our Cafe's include a meeting room available for church groups, networking groups, etc. and quickly become the local gathering place in their community.

A Flexible Business Concept

How do you want to run your business? What is your management style? Do you want to be "hands on" and involved in the day to day operations? Or do you want to grow the business with good employees so you can take a more "hands off" approach, and spend your time promoting the business in your community? Owning one of our coffee shops puts the choice in your hands.

Our lower entry cost makes it easier to consider adding additional profit centers to increase your business over time. A few synergistic concepts that have been co-branded successfully by our Café owners include a cigar store, bookstore, and florist. Offering additional products and services is especially welcomed in smaller towns, which are excellent markets for our Café concept.


The comprehensive services offered under our Hard Bean Café program are designed to assist you in realizing your dream to own a coffee shop. We will share our industry knowledge and years of experience throughout the entire process, including pre-opening guidance and post-opening support.
