PJ’s Coffee reports strong mid-year franchise development returns
PJ’s Coffee announced its mid-year franchise development numbers on 14 July 2020, accepting a total of 11 franchise agreements that have or will result in 15 new franchise locations.
Despite the complications and concerns stemming from the current Covid-19 pandemic, the New Orleans-based coffeehouse has sustained growth momentum throughout 2020 – opening six new locations since March. Eight more are scheduled to open their doors and begin brewing within the next two months.
Among the eight new franchisees soon to open is Bobby Mounts: winner of PJ’s 2019 Veteran Franchise License Giveaway. Mounts is set to open his doors in Ruston later this month.
Of the 11 new franchise agreements, nine of them come from franchisees in pioneering markets for the brand. These markets are McKinney (Texas), Platte City (Missouri), Columbus (Georgia), Addison (Texas), Orlando (Florida), Columbia (South Carolina), Palmview (Texas), Pensacola (Florida), and Dallas (Texas). All PJ’s Coffee locations are operating in compliance with and staying up-to-date on local and state guidelines relating to Covid-19.
“The coffee industry has proven to be resilient once again, and our numbers show it,” said vice president of Franchise Development, Ryan Stansbury. “Our brand’s southern hospitality is contagious, and we search for franchisees who share that same goodwill and unparalleled passion for coffee making for as we do. That’s part of the reason we’ve continue to attract franchise candidates and open new businesses despite the current economic climate.”
Currently, PJ’s has 117 open stores throughout the continental United States and anticipates that total to climb to 125 by end of August.
