Dunn Brothers Coffee - Franchise Information
WHY DUNN BROTHERS COFFEE IS DIFFERENT
IN-STORE COFFEE ROASTING & COMMUNITY FOCUS
Our coffee is roasted fresh in-store daily. We do this in front of customers so they can see how their perfect cups of coffee come to be. Our coffee beans are single-origin, meaning they come from a single place. When you buy a Dunn Brothers Coffee shop, you’ll not only learn how to roast coffee, you’ll also have an opportunity to visit and meet with the farmers in the countries from which we buy our beans.
Each coffee shop is intended to be reflective of the community in which it’s located. That means local artwork on the walls, hosting community events, or partnering with local businesses. It can be what you make it, but supporting your community is a primary focus of the brand.
Our pastries are baked in-store, not delivered pre-made. We also offer a mix of made-to-order signature sandwiches and freshly-made salads.
YOUR LIQUID ASSETS
We require our franchise owners to have $125,000 in liquid assets and $500,000 net worth. We consider exceptions to the financial requirements if applicants have specialty coffee management experience.
THE COST OF OPENING A COFFEE SHOP
The cost of ownership of a Dunn Brothers Coffee shop ranges between $385,200 to $609,600. This includes construction, equipment, other start-up costs, and the initial license fee of $37,500.
OUR SUPPORT PACKAGE
We help you create a comprehensive business plan and support for getting the proper funding. We have relationships with third-party lenders who are already familiar with the Dunn Brothers Coffee business and will be able to give you targeted information and clear guidance. Qualified applicants may be required to put 30% cash down of the total initial investment, and apply for a loan term of up to ten years.
Our goal is to guide you through the process of understanding store-level economics so you can determine if this is the right business investment for you.
THE SIZE OF YOUR STORE
Great coffee shop real estate varies, but many of our stores are located in traditional endcap locations that range in size from 1,600 to 1,900 square feet.
Having a drive-thru is a necessity for most locations unless your store is in an urban setting, skyway, or captive destination location.
