Ziggi's Coffee Eyes More Growth with a Franchisee-First Approach
Ziggi's Coffee continues to make its fast-growing presence known as the go-to drive-thru coffee concept that is showing no signs of slowing down.
The leading specialty coffee shop and drive-thru franchise recently marked the milestone of opening of its 50th location in El Dorado, Arkansas. With more than 120 stores in development across 30 states, Ziggi’s Coffee is just getting started.
"Looking back on this journey, we never expected to experience such success and are grateful for our team's hard work that has led us to this moment," says co-founder Brandon Knudsen, Ziggi's CEO. "Our franchise owners, corporate team, baristas, management, and vendors are integral in getting here; we could not do any of this without them."
Founded in 2004 as a small coffee shop on the corner of Main Street in downtown Longmont, Colorado, Ziggi’s Coffee began franchising in 2016 after over a decade of operating successful café and drive-thru locations. Along the way, the brand has never wavered from its mission to expand in communities nationwide—one relationship at a time.
Ziggi's Coffee remains focused on bringing on only the best franchisees, providing unparalleled support, and nurturing a system-wide culture where the connection comes first.
This franchisee-first approach has attracted entrepreneurs like Harvinder Dod and Mihir Bedi, whose new store in El Dorado, Arkansas, features a drive-thru and convenient walk-up window.
"Ziggi's really stood out to us as a franchise company because of their dynamic, supportive team and the diverse menu they offer at all of their locations," said Bedi. “We just knew this opportunity was the right fit for us!"
The industry is taking note. Ziggi's Coffee was recently ranked among the top companies in the Entrepreneur Magazine Franchise 500, the much sought-after honor for the franchise industry's outstanding performers in areas such as unit growth, financial strength, stability, and brand power.
From specializing in a variety of great-tasting menu items to providing fast and friendly service, Ziggi's Coffee creates a positive experience that is faster, more authentic, and convenient to meet the demand of consumers seeking higher-quality coffee and food options on the go. The distinctive menu features only the finest roasted coffee, uniquely handcrafted drinks, and delicious breakfast lunch, and snacks items with a something-for-everyone approach including the unique kidZone menu. Ziggi's leadership has crafted a franchise program with the same attention to detail that goes into creating that perfect cup of coffee.
"We were drawn to franchising with Ziggi's because they have incredible processes in place that allow us the luxury of opening a new business without the challenges of starting from scratch," says newly signed Marion, Illinois franchisee Brandon Chaplain. "In addition to the structure, Ziggi's has a terrific menu unlike any other. We saw the opportunity to introduce this concept in our community and ran with it!"
Along with a café and drive-thru model, Ziggi's franchise owners can expand with an industry-game-changing, double-sided drive-thru model, which serves only drive-thru customers from a freestanding building in a smaller size of approximately 625 square feet with a convenient walk-up window.
With nearly 200 agreements signed in 30 states, soon communities all over the nation will experience the Ziggi’s difference. Get started with your own success story as a Ziggi's Coffee franchise owner today at ziggiscoffee.com/franchise.
