Wake up to The Human Bean, Now Serving Coffee in Ashland, KY

March 01, 2024 // Franchising.com // KENTUCKY - Baristas at The Human Bean will begin pouring coffee and other specialty beverages at 1305 Fairfax Drive beginning March 1st at 6am. Customers are invited to come get a first taste of the drive-thru’s offerings, including specialty-grade coffee, real-fruit smoothies, whole-leaf teas, and hot breakfast items to-go.

Customers are also invited to join The Human Bean for their grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, March 1st at 11:30 am.

Local owners of the new Human Bean location, Mike and Bettie Chapman, say the staff look forward to providing above-par products and exceptional customer service — all with a signature chocolate-covered espresso bean on top. This is Mike and Bettie’s second Human Bean location with their first location in Huntington, West Virginia

“We’re super excited to be a part of the Ashland community, and look forward to serving the community for years to come,” says Mike. “We’ve got an excited team who have been training and preparing for this grand opening, and they’re ready to start sharing the energy here, and serving the friendly faces who come through our drive-thru or walk up window in Ashland.”

With a reputation for cheerful baristas and sustainably-sourced coffee, The Human Bean coffee company has grown from a single location in southern Oregon to a nationwide brand over the last 25 years. Drive-thru stands throughout the U.S. are primarily owned and operated by individual franchisees like Mike and Bettie, who have a passion for bringing “coffee with a smile” to their communities.

“All of our franchise partners work together to create a meaningful difference, one cup at a time. They’re bringing smiles to their customers’ faces and enriching their communities by giving back. It’s really incredible to be a part of the Ashland community,” says Scott Anderson, COO of The Human Bean.

Customers can join the feel-good vibes by participating in several fundraising events throughout the year, including the brand-wide Coffee for a Cure day in October. All of The Human Bean drive-thrus participate in the fundraisers each year, and collectively raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer prevention and treatment.

All of the money raised by the Ashland drive-thru location will stay in the community and be given to a local organization of the staff’s choosing.

Customers are invited to get a taste of what The Human Bean in Ashland has to offer from 6:00 am – 9:00 pm daily starting Friday, March 1st and can prepare for their visit by finding The Human Bean drink menu on their Facebook page (The Human Bean Ashland,) their Rewards App, or online at thehumanbean.com.
