The Benefits of Working in the Coffee Industry

Pursuing an investment in the coffee industry is one of the best ways to gain success. After crude oil, coffee is the second-largest traded commodity in the world and is the source for 75% of America’s caffeine. The $48 billion dollar U.S. industry continues to grow as the average American consumes about 3.5 cups of coffee every day. 64% of American consumers drink coffee daily.

The PJ’s Coffee Difference

PJ’s takes pride in serving single-origin coffees driven by passion, not costs. That’s why we only utilize the top 1% of Arabica beans and never keep our coffee on the shelf for more than 120 days. This short shelf life helps preserve the fresh, bold taste of our gourmet roasts. We’re proud to lead the industry in sourcing methods with a focus on supporting sustainability from farm to cup. We’re proud to lead the industry in sourcing methods with a focus on supporting sustainability from farm to cup. PJ's has direct trade partnerships with farms located in both Honduras and Nicaragua which allows us to cut out the middleman and give that extra margin to our coffee farmers and their families.

The human connection is the soul of who we are and what we serve. As a company that focuses on hospitality and the human connection, our franchisees know we’re there for them through every step of the process, from the first inquiry call to the grand opening and beyond.

We look forward to helping you achieve both personal freedom and professional goals while you provide a unique, southern hospitality experience for your customers.
