PJ's Coffee Celebrates National Coffee Day

By: PJ's Coffee

Category:Coffee Industry News and Trends

We like to think of National Coffee Day as an everyday celebration at PJ’s Coffee. Many of the reasons we celebrate coffee and its history correspond with the qualities that have made PJ’s such a successful coffee shop franchise: our history in the coffee industry, our loyal customers, the sustainability of our company, and so much more. These are just some of the reasons the top quarter of PJ’s franchises with a drive-thru made an average of $910,706* and had a 17.8% increase in same-store sales.

Customer Loyalty at PJ's Coffee Franchise is Unrivaled

One thing that makes the coffee industry so rewarding and worthy of celebrating is how loyal customers are—and PJ’s Coffee customers are living proof of that. We established our coffee shop franchise as a family business, first and foremost, which extends beyond our franchisees to our customers.

PJ’s Coffee franchisees establish themselves as the heart of their communities. During the pandemic, PJ’s Coffee franchises became recognized by their guests as a respite, where they could still come to get their favorite coffee and treats. Furthermore, the addition of technological advancements such as our online and mobile ordering has made our coffee shop franchise an easy choice since well before the pandemic. Our franchisees' adaptability and responsiveness to their guests’ needs have made our brand the go-to for many specialty coffee lovers.

National Coffee Day at PJ’s Coffee Celebrates Sustainability

As consumers become more educated on the production process behind their favorite products, they’ve begun looking more closely at what goes on behind the scenes of brands. At PJ’s Coffee, we’ve always been transparent about the care we put into every cup of coffee, and that extends all the way to the farms we’ve partnered with to grow the beans that our guests enjoy every day.

For us, part of genuinely celebrating National Coffee Day as one of the country's fastest-growing coffee shop franchises means setting an example in the industry. With a significant amount of customers willing to pay more for fair trade and sustainably produced products, investing in a business that has committed to an eco-conscious business model only makes sense.

We Offer Peerless Franchisee Support

PJ’s Coffee franchisees are our partners in success. Just as they’ve invested in our brand, we, in turn, invest in our franchisees by providing the kind of support that has earned us recognition on Franchise Business Review’s Top-50 Franchise List for eight years consecutively. This recognition, given to brands based on franchisee-submitted surveys, is emblematic of the infrastructure of support only we can offer.

Our franchisees are proud to serve the top 1% of Arabica fresh coffee beans daily. And, as a brand, we are excited to extend a FREE 12oz cup of hot or cold brew on September 29th to anyone that places an order on the mobile app. Celebrate National Coffee Day the right way with PJ's Coffee of New Orleans!

  • PJs has provided me with the flexibility to prioritize my day-to-day responsibilities. While demanding, the work/life balance I have been able to obtain while owning my locations is invaluable. PJ’s is a family-oriented brand and that is evident every day - we have great working, as well as personal, relationships with many folks at corporate. It truly is a family centered culture that I am excited to grow with! - Andrew Jones
  • We loved the products and the business model, and it all worked out so well. The ability to work with them is what sets them apart. They are very reasonable people and it’s a solid company. When we went to meet the team, everyone was super kind, and it was very apparent that they provide a ton of support to their franchisees. It’s important to feel like you can always reach out to somebody when needed. - Angela Harmon
  • I think if someone is looking for a franchise opportunity they should find something that fits their lifestyle. If you're a morning person, a coffee business might be good for you. I'm a morning person so waking up at 4 A.M. is fine, the whole 'wake up and smell the coffee' thing - that's me. - Anthony Satterlee
  • I decided to look into coffee and probably spent about 3 years doing the investigation. I decided on PJ's because the quality of the product is just head and shoulders above everybody else. - Tom Lewis
  • It's easy to be successful. You can become part of your community in a way you can't otherwise in a lot of other businesses. I would highly recommend it. - Polly Fisher
  • The best part of being a franchisee is the freedom. It gives you the opportunity to provide for your family, but also be a part of your family. It gives you time to play with your children or take a vacation, but still have a fantastic business. - Kelly Songy
  • I decided owning a PJ's Coffee shop was the way to go. From start to finish, corporate was there for me when I selected a location, ordered equipment and furniture. - Mateusz Dabrowski
  • I fell in love with PJs Coffee and the brand, years before I ever owned a location and now I own two! I wanted a business that, with the right staff, would be able to operate successfully without me having to be there all day every day. PJs coffee gives you that flexibility and freedom. I also love the family atmosphere that corporate provides and the camaraderie between franchisees is wonderful! You are in business for yourself, but not by yourself, and that is a great sense of comfort and security. I love this business!
