Franchise coming in early 2017 will offer organic coffees and teas, fresh food, antioxidant rich Acai bowls and superfood smoothies
Los Angeles, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Two HOT emerging concepts are moving to Virginia from their origins in Hollywood, California. DRNK coffee + tea and QWENCH juice bar are coming to the Virginia/Metro DC area. A privately-held franchise development group has purchased the rights to develop several units in the Virginia DMA. Some locations will be stand-alone DRNK or QWENCH units, however the majority planned are for a combination of the two brands in a single unit. Exciting new development deals are being finalized in Texas, Northern and Southern California and in select international markets making this the hottest new investment in the franchise world.
DRNK is an edgy new franchise model bringing a vibrant swagger to the coffee segment offering world-class organic lattes, espressos and teas. DRNK presents a better approach to giving consumers what they want most by offering amazing quality food items like fresh made breakfast sandwiches and paninis coupled by a tap system, front and center which features cold brew, nitro brew and kombucha. The menu is as comfortable and accessible as the environment the restaurants offer. With the US coffee shop industry showing a combined annual revenue of about $12 billion, DRNK’s specialty eatery segment is one that offers continued growth to franchisees.
The vision at QWENCH juice bar is quite simple. It reflects a perfect balance of genuine health and incredible taste via a diverse selection of raw squeezed juices, nutrient dense smoothie blends, infused with superfoods (not powders or concentrates) and handmade organic Brazilian Super fruit Acai bowls. Freshly made Greek Yogurt Bowls, topped with powerful Superfoods round out the innovative approach to today’s modern juice bar. All are presented with experiential guest surprises. QWENCH comes at a time when the global juice market is being driven by consumer interest in eating foods and beverages that claim to improve health and include essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants and probiotics.
DRNK & QWENCH’s principals boast significant retail and foodservice experience coupled by a commitment to offer all partners marketing and franchise support.
Franchise partners are offered three flexible models: DRNK, QWENCH or a dual branded store combined under one roof.
“No other concept in this space is offering two brands, complimentary to each other combined together the way we’ve presented it. The dual brand model is the perfect pairing, maximizing operator efficiency per square foot,” says Mitch Baker, Chief Brand Officer for DRNK and QWENCH. “It’s the perfect sweet spot, targeting a variety of customer day parts in a proven model that works so well and addresses franchisees daily challenges when it comes to climate, limited offerings and maximizing operational efficiencies.”
About DRNK coffee + tea and QWENCH juice bar
A team of well tenured multi-unit operators created both DRNK and QWENCH. Having successfully developed and operated brands with 5 internationally recognized food franchises, they understand the needs of the franchise partner. Most importantly, they have absorbed the positive methods practiced by those concepts and learned what works (and what doesn’t). They are focused on brand growth, profitability and support while delivering innovative and delicious products. More info at: www.drnkqwench.com.
