PJ's Coffee brewing franchising opportunities in Mississippi
PJ's Coffee of New Orleans, a Ballard Brands brand, is looking to open up to 30 locations in Mississippi over the next two to three years. Via franchising, the chain is targeting Jackson, Oxford and Columbus, according to a company press release.
Already kick-starting the development process is Brooke Stampley, who has three single-unit franchise licenses to open throughout Hattiesburg, Mississippi, adding to the existing five locations in the state. Having worked with the PJ's Coffee brand for the last nine years, Stampley began her journey as a barista in high school and worked her way up the ladder to store manager and then an operations consultant for the corporate team.
"Having the privilege to introduce PJ's Coffee to the local communities of Hattiesburg through a unique coffee experience is a dream come true," Stampley said in the release. "Since I began my journey as a barista in high school, I have seen the brand grow rapidly and know it's built with a versatile business model that is sure to succeed and flourish in the Magnolia state."
With Mississippi neighboring the brand's home state of Louisiana, it was a natural progression for the brand to continue growth throughout the region, Ballard Brands President Peter Boylan said in the release.
"We know locals will appreciate the familiar New Orleans inspired flavors and vibrant atmosphere we offer, as the brand is already known and loved in this region," he said. "This creates an excellent opportunity for coffee enthusiasts to get in on the action and provide further access to our one-of-a-kind roasts to Mississippi residents."
