PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans announced its mid-year franchise development numbers on July 14, 2020, accepting a total 11 franchise agreements that have or will result in 15 new franchise locations.
Despite the complications and concerns stemming from the current COVID-19 pandemic, the New Orleans-based coffeehouse has sustained impressive growth momentum throughout 2020 – opening six new locations since March. Eight more are scheduled to open their doors and begin brewing within the next 75 days.
Among the eight new franchisees soon to open is Bobby Mounts: winner of PJ’s 2019 Veteran Franchise License Giveaway. Mounts is set to open his doors in Ruston later this month.
Of the 11 new franchise agreements, nine of them come from franchisees in pioneering markets for the brand. These markets are McKinney (Texas), Platte City (Missouri), Columbus (Georgia), Addison (Texas), Orlando (Florida), Columbia (South Carolina), Palmview (Texas), Pensacola (Florida), and Dallas (Texas).
