"Our differentiation is that we have the consistency of a national brand, but a neighborhood feel because we are franchise owned and operated," says Brian Whittaker, director of franchise development.
The Saxbys brand has become known for its gourmet espresso beverages, hot and frozen coffee drinks, lattes, cappuccinos, loose-leaf teas, smoothies, as well as expertly roasted coffee beans. While each location carries the tradition and quality of the Saxbys name, every location is independently owned and operated, allowing franchisees to become active members in the communities they serve. "Each shop feels like a Saxbys, but with its own little details that makes it unique, really making it a part of the community that it's in," Whittaker says. One is organically, identifying new locations, pairing up a franchisee with those locations and getting them open and operating," explains Whittaker. "We are also looking to grow through acquisition, and with both of these strategies, we think we will be able to meet our growth goals." Saxbys Coffee currently has 18 stores in development, with a goal of 100 locations open and operating by the end of the year. The company currently has a focus on the Mid-Atlantic region, with strong markets in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia, though other markets have shown interest as well. For its typical location, Saxbys has an optimal footprint of approximately 1,200 square feet targeted primarily for end-cap or shared pad sites. "We've found that in choosing locations, convenience is everything," Whittaker says. Like other growing retailers, Saxbys has found the down economy as a surprising strength for the franchise. "It's interesting - downturns in the economy can be very good times for franchise systems. We see people getting laid off from corporate America that want to get into business for themselves," Whittaker says. "As long as we can get the deals financed, we have no problem finding the deals right now." According to Whittaker, franchisees are attracted to Saxbys mainly because of the benefits and support it can offer its partners. There are relatively low start-up costs to join Saxbys recognized brand in the recession-proof coffee industry. Saxbys also takes the necessary steps to ensure the success of its franchisees. For every owner and operator, the retailer provides online support, expert site location, store design and extensive training, as well as advertising and promotional support. "Our business model is very appealing because it's a relatively simple operation and it's also a great way to get involved in your community and have a successful business model," says Whittaker.
