CHOOSE THE COFFEE TIME AND MORE
BUSINESS MODEL THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU!
CAFÉ- Typically placed in strip centers and malls, its
perfect for the owner-operator that wants a more traditional store
(historically proven to deliver the greatest gross revenues of any coffee
business model.) Modeled after Starbucks in service style and layout, the
floor plan may also accommodate an entertainment area.
CAFÉ WITH DRIVE-THRU WINDOW- Identical to the CAFÉ but with
the addition of a drive-thru window (for end cap locations only.)
DOUBLE DRIVE-THRU KIOSK- Typically placed on an improved
pad in the parking lot area of a strip mall, shopping mall, or stand alone
lot. Adjacent to the drive-by traffic of a busy street, it’s perfect for the
morning customer rushing to work or with kids in the car. It features easy
in and out access with a stacking capacity of 3-4 cars on each side of the
unit for faster service. Fully compliant to national building codes, it
includes a full ADA approved bathroom.
DO WE JUST SELL COFFEE?
No! You will be trained in all types of
coffee, espresso and cappuccino’s. Supplement your profits with sales from items
that work in your market. Your menu can include no-cook breakfast items like
bagels, donuts and breakfast sandwiches as well as gelatos, smoothies and teas.
You choose what you want to sell! Space is the only limiting factor- not your
imagination. The flexibility of our licensing program makes it easy to build a
menu and business that works for you.
FRANCHISE VS. LICENSE - WHAT YOU
1) IS IT BETTER TO BUY A FRANCHISE?
We don’t think so. As a Licensee of Coffee Time and More, you are given the
latitude to sell what you want at the price you want without jumping through a
lot of Corporate hoops.
2) CAN I SAVE MONEY? In most
cases, it is absolutely less expensive to open a Coffee Time and More versus the
other coffee concept franchises. Most coffee concepts can easily run into the
$200,000.-$400,000.00 range. COFFEE TIME AND MORE CAN DELIVER A FULLY EQUIPPED
STORE, INCLUDING ALL EQUIPMENT, SIGNAGE, DEPOSITS TO LANDLORDS AND CONSTRUCTION
COSTS FOR SIGNIFICANTLY LESS, USUALLY $50,000.-$100,000 LESS.
3) HOW DOES THE ADVERTISING WORK?
Most franchisors say that you should buy their franchise because of the power of
their advertising. While this is a plus- you end up paying from your profits-
sometimes as much as 8% in advertising and royalty fees. Coffee Time and More is
not a franchise and will not collect any advertising funds from you. You decide
what you want to spend.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE WITH A COFFEE TIME
AND MORE LICENSE
Along with the use of our logo and concept,
you get an award-winning consultation
team there to guide you from start to finish.
LOCATION SERVICES: If you already have a location great,
but if not we can help. Working in partnership with MAS, (a commercial real
estate company with extensive background in sales, leasing and marketing in
the commercial real estate industry) we have the expertise to handle the
complexities of tenant representation in a wide variety of markets
throughout the United States. MAS has represented companies such as AT&T,
Cold Stone Creamery, Little Caesars, Citibank and Burger King during their
almost thirty years in business.
CONSTRUCTION AND PERMITTING: With the help of our partner
GNP, we will guide you through all the steps necessary to get your location
up and running.
TRAINING: You want knowledge and confidence every time you
deliver a cup of coffee to your customer. Our training staff has many years
of experience in the retail coffee business and has taught many people,
including those that have never owned a coffee store. We provide on-site
training prior to your Grand Opening and ongoing consultations for the term
of your license.
ADVERTISING: Coffee Time and More does not collect an
advertising fee and does not force you to spend a certain dollar amount each
and every month in your local market. However, should you want advice or
examples of what other stores are doing, we’re there to guide you every step
of the way.
SUPPLIES AND INVENTORY: Coffee Time and More can supply you
with all of your coffee needs directly through our associated service
companies. We believe that our price and service will earn your loyalty.
However, you are free to buy coffee or other inventory, supplies, etc. from
other sources. This last sentence speaks volumes to the integrity of the
relationship between you and Coffee Time and More. No franchise will allow
you to buy from whom you please and negotiate prices because you are locked
into their contract for the duration of the agreement. As a Coffee Time and
More Licensee you have the ability to take your business elsewhere, no
strings attached, however we will always strive to provide the best service,
product, and price for your money.
