Rockn' Joe CoffeeHouse


Rockn' Joe Coffeehouse and Bistro Franchise Information:

Rockn' Joe History
Rockn' Joe Coffeehouse and Bistro was founded by Kevin Brennan, a businessman and visionary entrepreneur who capitalized on his love for rock music to create the most popular place in Cranford, N.J. Rockn' Joe had its beginnings in 1993, when Kevin saw how premiums coffees and sandwich trends were gaining steam across the United States. What he created was a unique café style coffeehouse with a cozy private lounge feel, decorated with rock memorabilia that offered the highest standards in bean selection and roasting techniques that set him ahead of the competition.

Unlike stale theme restaurants, where the experience runs its course after just one visit, Rockn' Joe is the place you want to come back to. It is your local place to listen to fun, upbeat rock music, from an eclectic collection of music over the past 40 years.

Your Rockn' Joe
Just like America's pioneering rock musicians, Rockn' Joe is not content with the status quo. The store offers specialty sandwiches, a delicious alternative to the boring, over-done fare of the chain restaurants. Our specialty brews offers everything from a steaming cup of Caramel XTC Latte to Café Mocha to daily specials concocted at a moment's notice. Our dessert menu is equally amazing, the freshest cake and pastry selection, the ideal compliment for our signature dishes and coffees.

Besides being a popular hangout, Rockn' Joe is also an outstanding business system that is franchising in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The company is actively looking for potential franchisees who are hard workers, love rock music, food and people and want to own the coolest business in town.

Training and Support
Before expanding, Kevin wanted to ensure he had the business to the point where everything was perfect: the best foods and drink, a well-designed floor plan, and a streamlined and simple business system that franchisees can easily follow.
