Caribou Coffee®, a national premium coffeehouse and Panera Brands portfolio concept, announced today the launch of its domestic franchise program.
Since its inception in 1992, Caribou Coffee has emerged as a leader in the coffeehouse segment known for innovative handcrafted products and award-winning customer experience, with over 718 locations systemwide including 314 company-owned primarily across the Midwest. Leveraging the successful model that has fueled continued growth for three decades, Caribou Coffee’s domestic franchise launch marks the first time interested candidates in the United States have an opportunity to own and operate coffeehouses which were previously only available internationally, through non traditional or licensing.
Caribou Cabin design coupled with the concept’s traditional coffeehouse prototype, featuring a larger footprint for
sit-down dining, offers franchisees flexible offerings that can cater to the unique criteria of their market and accelerate growth. Caribou Coffee is seeking experienced multi-unit operators to join its nationwide development efforts.
