The Story of Our Coffee Franchise

A Legacy All Its Own

PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans was founded in 1978 by Phyllis Jordan, a pioneer in the coffee industry who embraced high-quality beans, superior roasting methods, and a pure passion for the art of coffee-making. Today, our franchise coffee shop is recognized for harvesting, roasting, and personally crafting gourmet drinks using only the top 1% of Arabica beans and delicious organic tea. In addition, our selection of fresh breakfast pastries makes for the perfect beverage pairing.

As a company known for its coffee, we utilize a unique brewing technique for our iced coffee. Our special cold-drip process helps to protect the flavor and strength of our brews by maximizing the taste and greatly reducing the acidity. This process was pioneered by our very own Phyllis Jordan, and it is still used to brew all of our famous Cold Brew Iced Coffee™ today.

Our Heart And Soul

PJ's Coffee has a long tradition of involvement in the communities we serve. Throughout the year, our franchisees, baristas, managers, corporate employees, and their families unite to support the causes that are most dear to their areas, providing funding and event support with some of the world's best coffees, teas, pastries and more for hundreds of events each year.
