The Coffee Bean


The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is the oldest and largest privately-held specialty coffee and tea retailer in the United States and was named as one of Inc. Magazines Fastest Growing Companies in 2010.

While at The Coffee Bean my main responsibility was to find new franchisees to grow the company in the US & Internationally. The working environment required that I wore ‘many hats’ including refining our social media & public relations presence to drive more leads and interest. I created relationships with business partners on the East Coast, South America & Eastern Europe leading to franchise deals, increased revenue and national press recognition.
