What traits or experience do I need to open an Aroma Joe’s Coffee franchise?

We hope to work with those who seek a coffee shop franchise opportunity as an owner-operator, and who are willing to invest time and effort into operation of the business. Also, if you love delicious coffee, and energy drinks, and love the idea of handcrafted beverages, then we may be the right fit for you!

How much does an Aroma Joe’s franchise cost?

The minimum initial investment necessary to begin an Aroma Joe’s drive-through coffee franchise is $283,500 for a single location. This includes a $25,000 franchise fee. If you are an active member of the United States military or honorably discharged veteran, we also offer a reduced franchise fee of $12,500. As with any new venture, it’s important to have adequate capital to fund the initial business growth stages.

What are the financial requirements to qualify as a franchisee?

We ask that our franchisees begin with a minimum of $150,000 in liquid capital, and that they are qualified to secure capital for the investment necessary to their goal.

Aroma Joe’s Coffee is now offering coffee shop franchises in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

How many employees do I need?

In our experience, we believe best practice is to over hire to eliminate any unnecessary stress during your opening. Best practice is to open with 10-15 trained baristas, depending on the demographics for your location!

Do you offer training and/or support?

YES—A LOT! We pride ourselves on the level of assistance, training and ongoing support we offer to our franchisees.
