Better beans. Consistent roasting in our own facility. Passion for coffee. We
don’t mean to sound like we’re bragging, but with all due respect to Seattle,
PJ’s Coffee is Simply the Best Coffee.
PJ's Coffee is a franchise opportunity with a rich tradition, deep support, and
something to special to offer franchisees and consumers. We've been producing
simply the best coffee in the country for 25 years, and we've done it in a
hot-bed of discriminating palates: New Orleans.
Now, we're introducing it to communities nationwide. Once you've tasted it, the
secret will be out: PJ's serves the best specialty coffee in the category.
Best Coffee Concept
PJ's Coffee was founded 25 years ago in New Orleans, one of the most recognized
destinations in the world for its food, drink, and entertainment - a haven for
indulgence. To succeed in such an atmosphere you've got to be better than good.
We didn't just succeed - we thrived.
- To make simply the best coffee, we own the bean selection process and we
own the roasting process. Without it, a coffee company loses control of two of
the three foundational stages of developing a premium cupof coffee.
- PJ's uses a "medium roast strategy" (vs. the "well done" strategy). This
means that we have confidence in our beans. It means that we KNOW our beans
are quality - no need to burn them.
- Small batch size - controlled quality. Roasting the country's best beans
is a delicate process. We take it seriously.
- Quality beans, unequaled richness. The best coffee comes from beans that
are carefully chosen, still green, properly handled to minimize damage. Sounds
overprotective, but the results can be tasted.
For 25 years, we have selfishly kept to New Orleans. Selfish no more, we invite
the world to indulge in the most satisfying cup of coffee you will ever
experience. PJ's Coffee. Simply the best coffee.

Location, location, location. Did we mention location?
Real estate is a huge part of our success. Great locations drive traffic and
fuel concepts. By taking a proactive approach we secure and maintain deals well
into the future. Our real estate expertise gains us access to the hottest
locations in town and our tremendous buying power enables us to leverage
multiple concepts in one location. This satisfies landlords’ desire for large
deals instead of multiple small ones. We believe so firmly in the power our
brands we’ll often take on real estate projects on our own. The versatility of
our business model allows us to adapt to any environment. Whether it’s the big
city, suburbs, strip malls, or stand-alone stores, we’ve got it covered.
We provide the best-in-class support that doesn't end once your store is
built, your staff is trained, and your business is opened. Each store is
assigned a business consultant who will assist in the strategic and operational
questions that you will inevitably encounter after your Grand Opening. We're
here to motivate, encourage, and share best practices.
All of our business consultants have extensive franchise operations
experience and can help you through some of the finer points of operating your
business—from scheduling to accounting, from driving top-level sales to cutting
costs without cutting quality. We're accountable to each other—so our business
consultants are there to make you the best you can be.
