Original Coffee & Espresso Bars for Convenience Store Owners & Operators

The Challenge How can gas and convenience store operators, facing intense margin and expense pressures, increase gross profit dollars from the all-important coffee category, and leverage their location to compete with national chains offering coffee?�

The Solution Design an economic coffee bar, blending existing self-serve offerings with premium, prepared drinks under a new brand, supported by a strong coffee supplier and marketer, and store operators will benefit.

The Java Stop! Our mission is to provide a premium coffee and espresso bar to offer a full array of hot and cold coffee beverages in addition to self-serve poured coffee. Upscale in appearance, it will enhance the overall look of any interior retail store space. We will provide trade area exclusivity, hassle-free installation, and expert training of existing personnel to prepare the quality beverages which today’s coffee drinkers demand.
