Dunn Bros Coffee Franchise Information:

Since 1987, Dunn Bros Coffee has been a stand-out in the coffee house market.

There is a tremendous amount of market potential yet to be tapped in coffee, and many people are looking for a very high quality alternative. Success can be achieved in today's competitive world by having a distinctive point of difference. Dunn Bros Coffee shops exhibit this difference by utilizing state of the art, on-site micro-roasting techniques. So on a daily basis, our locations are roasting very select, high quality coffee beans…right in front of our customers.

Benefits of Roasting Coffee Beans On-Site:
  • Coffee Beans have the greatest aroma and flavor within 3 to 5 days of roasting. We take the beans right from the cooling tray and immediately put them up for sale at the whole bean bar or grind them as needed for immediate use in our wide variety of coffee and espresso drinks. Any competitor using a central roasting facility (with its' packaging, shipping, warehousing, and transit) does NOT truly offer "fresh roasted" coffee.
  • FRESH IS BETTER. Do you like your bread in a plastic bag two weeks after baking? - Or - Do you prefer delicious bread fresh out of the oven? Freshly roasted coffee has this same impact, and it is part of the reason we continue to win First Place in the "Readers Poll Awards" over competitors with household name recognition.
  • We can greatly reduce waste by only roasting as much coffee as our business demands.
  • We place our roasters in high-visibility locations within the shop so patrons can easily view the roasting activity. This is both interesting and entertaining for our customers. They appreciate the opportunity to learn more about coffee… which helps us to sell more high-margin whole bean coffee by the pound.
  • The wonderful aromas of fresh roasted coffee fill the air and keep our customers coming back for more!
  • You can realize a considerable gross-profit margin advantage (over buying pre-roasted coffee beans) because of our purchasing power on green (un-roasted) beans.

Dunn Bros Coffee shops offer bakery items, breakfast & lunch sandwiches, soups, deserts, espresso based drinks, single-country-of-origin drip brews, frozen & iced drinks & high quality teas.

Dunn Bros Coffee shops are not "Corporate Cookie-Cutter" look-a-likes:
  • Our shops feature a warm, inviting and comfortable atmosphere with a combination of both hard & soft seating, fireplaces, bookshelves, games, free Internet access computer stations.
  • Free Wi-Fi for laptop users… appreciated by both students and business people.
  • Some locations feature acoustic music on weekend nights.
  • Local artists & photographers display their wares on our walls. We might even feature the art contest winners from Mrs. Smith's Fifth-grade class.
  • Our shops have a strong community feel to them!
  • The hottest new locations are high visibility end-cap sites that feature outdoor patios with speakers. Some shops even offer a drive-thru… very popular with busy parents!

We are a Full-Service and Support franchise company:
  • We have a "system" for you to follow that can help you to avoid mistakes, save you money, and shorten your learning curve… all helping you to maximize this business.
  • This "system" was developed and is now supported by the well-grounded, hands-on-experience of our coffee house support team.
  • Our team assists you in every phase of both new shop development and on-going support long after you open. Some of the areas include: training, workshops, conferences & trade-shows, site-selection, architectural design, volume discount pricing on commercial-grade furniture, fixtures, equipment, shipping & distribution, bakery and food products, dairy, paper products, mixes and syrups, and of course…coffee.
  • Understanding that our success is tied to your success has led to our growth of 55 shops open and another 65 shops under development in 9 states.
