Now Seeking Franchisees To Open New Specialty Coffee Shops Across The Nation
COAHUILA, MEXICO, January 22, 2009 /EIN News/ -- For coffee lovers who have always dreamed of owning their own specialty coffee business, Java Times Caffe announces it is now expanding its franchise opportunity to the United States.
Java Times Caffe has been tweaking its remarkable business concept in the country of Mexico for many years, creating A coffee shop that everyone likes. The company is willing to share its years of experience with aspiring coffee shop owners within the United States. Its shops feature about 43 different types of flavorful coffee from Mexico along with a wide selection of delightful teas from around the world. Apart from its delicious coffee and tea selections, Java Times Caffe also offers a hot and cold menu featuring Panini, salads, wraps, bagels, nachos, pizza and a variety of blended fruit frappe drinks.
Java Times Caffe is seeking highly qualified licensee candidates that have a passion for coffee and are hard-working, self-motivated, willing to work as a team, dedicated to the work on a full time basis, and have a willingness to follow the guidelines and policies as set forth by the company. Licensees must also have the financial means to enable them to invest in a Java Times Caffe franchise as well as maintain a healthy operation, committing to at least one unit development plan, with a minimum of two stores (dependent upon the market area).
"Prime licensee candidates should be very excited about introducing the world's best coffee to their local market in the United States. We are backed by many loyal clients, including Mexican coffee growers who sacrifice daily to guarantee the best coffee possible. Java Times Caffe will easily compete with the big players in the specialty coffee realm, so qualified licensees will be able to build their business with confidence," states Antonio Leite, CEO of Java Times Caffe.
The first U.S. shop will open in San Antonio, Texas, and locations in other states are soon to follow. States where Java Times Caffe franchises will be offered initially are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, and the country of Mexico.
Though there are four different prototype variations of the store, Java Times Caffe is currently expanding with only the full store prototype. The size of this store is between 80 and 150 square meters, with some outdoor seating for guests. Total seating within a location can accommodate between 30 and 70 guests.
Each store will also have a part in bettering the lives of coffee farm workers in Mexico. Java Times Caffe gives back 1.5 percent of sales before taxes to its own coffee-growing community. The gift is sent back to the growers to better the quality of life for their children.
Leite states, "Our gifts will enable growers to continue producing some of the finest coffee in the world, which Java Times Caffe consumers can enjoy for years to come."
Java Times Caffe is owned and backed by Antonio Leite, who has been working in the coffee business for the past 15 years. The company is operated by the Franchisor, JTC Franchising Company, S.A. de C.V., who grants the Licensee the license to use the brand and the rights and obligations for the establishment of a franchise. Java Times Caffe is officially incorporated in Mexico with Mexican and foreign shareholders.
