What to Expect with Our Coffee Franchise Opportunity

Though an exact dollar amount is difficult to calculate for a variety of reasons, we can provide you with information from Item 19 of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that will show you impressive average unit sales volumes. This will give you a good idea of what you can expect with your own PJ’s.

A Recession-Resistant Industry

In good times and bad, people always need their coffee. This has been no more evident than during the coronavirus pandemic. In 2020, while other industries were simply trying to stay afloat, PJ’s was thriving. Our locations with drive-thrus experienced a 12.1% same-store sales increase over the previous year and averaged $839,513 in net sales*. Our coffee shop franchise has been proven to be recession-resistant and can weather economic ups and downs.
