I am super excited to announce this month's Vancouver Entrepreneur Meetup and not only because I live beside a JJ Bean Cafe (http://www.jjbeancoffee.com/) but because JJ Bean is a local icon and a brand that I admire.
The first JJ Bean Coffee House was opened 14 years ago but the owner John Neate’s history with coffee goes three generations back when his grandfather operated a roasting plant and wholesaling operation at 1070 Mainland Street.
JJ Bean (http://www.jjbeancoffee.com/) is Vancouver-born and raised. It’s humble beginning of a 200 square-foot retail outlet on Granville Street has grown to nine location with the latest additions to include two beautiful locations at Woodward’s and CBC.
JJ Bean recently won “Best Fair Trade Coffee Shop”, “Best Coffee Shop (local chain)” and “Best Coffee Shop (Independent)” in 2009 Georgia Straight’s “Best of Vancouver” issue (http://www.jjbeancoffee.com/articles/jj-bean-named-best-vancouver).
John will be sharing with us the trials and tribulations of building JJ Bean to the successful coffee house that it is today.
