One of our very first podcasts over 14 years ago was with Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii. We are excited to have them back 14 years later! We are meeting with Scott Snyder, CEO of Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii. Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii is entering a new era of growth following its acquisition by Colorado-based Royal Aloha Coffee Company in 2019. During the last three years, the company has re-launched the national brand with a new logo, packaging, and restaurant design, resulting in a revived 32-year-old brand with a cult following.
Debuting this year is the brand’s freestanding full café with drive-thru model, spanning approximately 1,650 – 1,800 square feet, that is slated to open in Hendersonville, Tennessee in late Q3 2022. As an evolution of this model, that is gaining vast interest among prospective franchisees, the brand is set to rollout a freestanding double drive-thru model, spanning 500-740 square feet, with pickup windows and no interior café seating by Q4 2022. Full roster of store models now includes:
· Traditional in-line store with café (and drive thru with end-cap locations)
· Freestanding single or double-drive thru kiosk with pickup windows and no interior café seating (outdoor seating optional by location)
· Freestanding full-café with drive-thru and exterior seating
· Non-traditional kiosk: grocery, shopping malls, airports, transportation centers, etc. (square footage dependent on location and limited menu offering)
In part two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
