Socially-conscious franchise features “cargotecture” aesthetic with drive-through locations crafted from shipping containers
A new, socially-conscious coffee franchise could be coming your way soon. Caffeinated Ventures LLC is offering Wake Oasis Coffee franchises, with sales already underway in September in the Carolinas.
Franchisees can operate brick-and-mortar shops or beach-inspired drive-through setups constructed from metal shipping containers – putting sustainability and reusability into practice. The shops will serve coffees, teas, and related items. Wake Oasis Coffee shops will feature fun recipes and menus and upbeat and inviting décor and furnishings. They also will have online apps and special hardware and software. Franchisees will be trained in the brand’s systems and marketing programs.
“We have spent many months developing a novel concept in the retail coffee and specialty beverage space,” Peterson told qsrmagazine.com. “The visual impact of these container stores gives them immediate recognition on major thoroughfares to attract interest and customers into a development or shopping center.” He pointed out that the “cargotecture” aesthetic of the drive-through locations as well as unique menus “will help our franchisees compete strongly right out of the gate.”
Wake Oasis has completed the franchise disclosure document process and is approved to offer franchises in 28 states, according to a report in qsrmagazine.com. Paul Peterson, founder of The Wake Zone Coffee House Inc., announced that Caffeinated Ventures LLC was established as the franchisor for Wake Oasis Coffee. Wake Oasis Coffee will use Wake Zone Coffee House’s popular menu items from its locations in Apex, N.C.
Wake Oasis Coffee will provide qualified franchisees, investors and developers with the opportunity to sign a single-unit franchise agreement. They will also offer qualified franchisees the right and obligation to develop multiple shops within a Development Area.
Dilworth Coffee, a coffee roaster and specialty beverage distributor headquartered in Raleigh, N.C., will serve as a strategic supplier to Wake Oasis Coffee franchisees with coffee, specialty beverages and supplies nationwide. Jeff Vojta, CEO of Dilworth Coffee, said customers love the customized menu items that his company helped develop for the Wake Zone Coffee stores in Apex. That menu is the foundation for Wake Oasis’s offerings, he added. “We are excited to bring over 25 years of experience in the industry to help Wake Oasis Coffee franchisees.”
