Over the years our concept, process, and coffee have been refined into the drive-thru coffee franchise we are today. We do business with entrepreneurs who want to be in business for themselves but not by themselves. Our time-tested approach to coffee franchise business ownership is presented in a seamless, well thought out, easy to understand manner. It’s this model that propelled us to #345 in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 in 2012!
When considering whether or not a drive-thru coffee franchise is right for you, keep in mind that coffee has moved into the number one beverage of choice in the U.S.
Coffee has surpassed soda! Additionally, 53% of coffee customers get their coffee “to go” making drive-thru coffee the fastest growing segment of the specialty coffee industry. Nearly 9 of 10 people in America enjoy coffee daily and 2/3 of the customers buying coffee purchase 4 or more times per week. Frequent trips mean enhanced loyalty and opportunities for sales and traffic.
The Mountain Mudd drive-thru coffee franchise model includes time-tested practices we’ve perfected in 17 years of experience owning and operating drive-thru coffee kiosks. This knowledge and aptitude is truly unmatched by any other drive-thru coffee kiosk retailer. Our products, concepts, and systems are tested first hand. We own and operate 10 of our own drive-thru coffee kiosks 364 days a year. We have an established reputation, sufficient capital, high quality products, exceptional service training and satisfied customers.
Be aware that our brand speaks loudly. The benefits of brand awareness, uniformity in meeting the needs of customers, and understanding trends across the nation is invaluable to your bottom line. A brand is not something that you can build overnight. According to the Coffee Association of Canada the top variables influencing coffee purchase is 45% brand, 30% quality, and 25% price. The Mountain Mudd Espresso brand is fun, delicious, and unique. Our staff and customers are fun and approachable. We have all of the drinks but none of the attitude.
The Entrepreneur’s source says “Franchisors provide you with a proven system to follow. That’s S.Y.S.T.E.M. as in “Save Your Self Time, Energy, and Money”. We provide the framework but you manage, market, and promote your drive-thru coffee kiosk business. You are in control of your marketplace. Franchisors can only be successful if their franchisees are successful. This makes a win-win relationship that is unique in the business world.
We encourage you to look into our history and get to know the story of our owners. Research our quality control methods and compare our fee structure and financial statements. According to the International Franchise Association’s 2005 revised publication of “Answers to the 20 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Franchising”, the average investment necessary to buy a franchise, excluding real estate costs, is between $350,000-$400,000. Mountain Mudd Espresso offers its brand, business model, and drive-thru coffee kiosk for approximately $130,000.
