The connections our franchisees are able to make within their communities play a big role in both their success and their love for what they do. They aren’t looking to transfer or sell their businesses—they are looking to grow and expand with PJ’s.

The PJ’s Coffee Difference

PJ’s takes pride in—serving single-origin coffees driven by passion, not costs. That’s why we only utilize the top 1% of Arabica beans and never keep our coffee on the shelf for more than 90 days. This short shelf life helps preserve the fresh, bold taste of our gourmet roasts.

  • No industry experience required!
  • Low initial investment
  • Low employee need
  • Low labor costs
  • Simple business model
  • Easy to achieve ROI with high demand products

We’re proud to lead the industry in sourcing methods with a focus on supporting sustainability from farm to cup. For instance, by working directly with farms like Finca Terrerito Farm in Honduras and Agua Fresca in Nicaragua, PJ’s is able to cut out the middleman and give that extra margin to our coffee farmers and their families.

The human connection is the soul of who we are and what we serve. As a company that focuses on hospitality and the human connection, our franchisees know we’re there for them through every step of the process, from the first inquiry call to the grand opening.


As you evaluate our brand, you will discover that our company culture allows franchisees to enjoy an exciting and fulfilling lifestyle.

While a hot cup of our fresh coffee stimulates conversation, business, and success, we are constantly looking for new ways to innovate our methods and maintain our loyal customer base. Our inspiration and passion for creating a gourmet cup of coffee trickles down to our franchisees, managers, baristas, and customers.


If you are looking for a business opportunity affording you the freedom and fun you have been yearning for, PJ's Coffee of New Orleans will offer this and much more! We look forward to helping you achieve both personal freedom and professional goals while you provide a unique, southern hospitality experience for your customers.

We look forward to hearing from you!
