Caribou Coffee launches U.S. franchise program

The coffee brand is seeking multi-unit owners to expand its footprint across the States

The coffee brand is seeking multi-unit owners to expand its footprint across the States.

Caribou Coffee, a premium coffeehouse franchise with over 718 locations throughout the U.S. and a further 269 franchise stores internationally in 10 countries, has announced the launch of its domestic franchise program to further spread the brand’s presence in the States.

News of this new franchise program launch comes after the successful 2019 roll-out of the Caribou Cabin prototype; a new build-out model which significantly lowered the footprint of each unit and prioritized a drive-thru model without sacrificing quality and service.

“Over the past 30 years, Caribou Coffee has refined and elevated the guest experience through an unwavering commitment to quality, as well as investments in innovation. Leveraging our unit growth and omnichannel performance, we’ve designed scalable processes and support services to enable franchisees’ success,” said John Butcher, president and CEO of Caribou Coffee.

“Recognizing Caribou Cabins’ immense expansion potential, we’ve optimized this business model through our corporate-owned locations and are focused on replicating the success we’ve experienced in new markets in partnership with franchise owners.”

When rolling out its franchise program, Caribou Coffee is looking to partner with experienced multi-unit operators that can join its nationwide development efforts. Candidates should ideally have extensive franchising experience in the food and beverage space, and key markets identified include Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Colorado, and the Southeast.
