PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans, a New Orleans-based coffeehouse, has awarded U.S. Army Veteran, Michael Adams, the winner of its annual Veteran Franchise License Giveaway.
PJ’s Coffee received more than 35 applications from veterans across the United States interested in becoming the next PJ’s Coffee franchisee winner. After a thorough interview process of all applicants, Adams was chosen as the lucky winner, becoming the third overall recipient of this giveaway.
Adams served in the U.S. Army for 22 years and has been a federal government employee for the past 14 years. In his free time, during active duty and as a civilian, Adams volunteers with the local youth by coaching little league teams, both here in the states and overseas. Adams’ military experience, mixed with his love for giving back to the community, is what makes him the ideal PJ’s Coffee franchisee.
“I am so grateful for the opportunities to serve my country and all that they have taught me. However, I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my life,” said Adams. “Being born and raised in Louisiana, I couldn’t think of a better business to get involved with. This endeavor isn’t just for me, but it is to support my family and allows me to get further involved in my community.”
“We are looking forward to working with Michael and welcoming him into our franchise system as the third winner of PJ’s Coffee’s franchise license giveaway. There are certain characteristics we look for in franchisees, and Michael checks every box,” said Ryan Stansbury, PJ’s Coffee Vice President of Franchise Development.
