The Human Bean Drive Thru Franchise Start-Up Costs


Succeed With Our Coffee and Espresso Franchise

The Human Bean opened its first store in Ashland, Oregon, in 1998. The Human Bean opened its first store in Ashland, Oregon, in 1998. Early success and positive customer reception encouraged us to open additional locations throughout Southern Oregon during the next five years. We now own and operate twelve corporate stores with plans for modest corporate store growth in the Pacific Northwest. The most significant growth of the brand has occurred through franchising. 

In early 2002, we began franchising our brand and system. The Human Bean is now 51 locations strong in 7 states with several more pending permits or currently under construction. Our numbers have increased due to the current franchisees' operational strength and positive attitudes toward the brand and the system. Working together, The Human Bean representatives and franchisees have developed new markets for the specialty coffee and drive-thru industry that have not previously existed. The goal of The Human Bean is to affiliate with determined and positive individuals who are committed to developing the best drive-thru espresso brand.

We expect additional growth through approved franchisees throughout the nation. Moving forward, the brand will remain on the
proven path that successful operations are founded with exceptional product, attractive and efficient facilities, and training which provides qualified people the tools needed to be the consumers' brand of choice.
There are numerous key components to a successful double-sided espresso drive-thru. Specifics range from site selection, building design, and equipment layout to barista hiring and training to assure consistent quality products and facilitate the repetitive positive customer experience. The Human Bean franchise system delivers the experience and expertise to assist you from start to finish in opening your own The Human Bean Espresso Drive-Thru business. 

Our system was designed by operators for operators. Most operational nuances only become apparent through successful operation of high volume double-sided drive-thrus. Unlike nearly all other franchises, we do not charge percentage-of-sales royalty fees or set monthly fees. The Human Bean realizes that as an independent business owner, franchisees should be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor while receiving the benefits of being part of The Human Bean franchise.

Starting a coffee espresso franchise: The Basics
Franchisees can choose between our site-built or pre-fabricated 12'x36' building design. Total start-up costs vary by area. Site development fees, real-estate values, and the degree to which a site has been developed will determine the entry cost. Applicable engineering and permit fees also have a wide range of variability from region to region. In addition to the site specific development and real estate cost, hard costs also include expenses for building and building signage and dress, interior equipment, decking, menu boards, awnings, a freestanding pole or monument sign, and the $20,000 franchise fee.
A few of the most important factors in a successful drive-thru are:

  • Superior and consistent product
  • Location on the predominant morning drive pattern with great visibility
  • Easy ingress and egress
  • High traffic volumes
  • Friendly and effective staff.

Many beginning and seasoned entrepreneurs find equipment leasing a valuable tool. Pre- fabricated drive-thru buildings are normally considered equipment. Often, the majority of the initial startup cost can be leased. Equipment leasing allows business owners to retain their cash, and saves them from the often-tedious experience of standard financial lending. The Human Bean does not offer equipment leasing or financial lending, but helps in locating the same for potential franchisees.  For your convenience we are listed on the SBA Franchise Registry .
