Twiggs Franchise Opportunities

Be the first to bring Twiggs Fresh Roasted Coffee to your community.

Twiggs Coffee offers franchise opportunities with rich traditions, deep support, and something to prove:
we’ve been producing the best coffee in the country for more than 20 years.

Getting Started

What types of Twiggs franchises are available?

Twiggs offers single unit franchises and multi-unit development agreements in the south, southeast, and southwest regions of Ontario.  In some metropolitan areas, depending on the locations available, we will also be broadening the franchise opportunity to include a wine bar concept.

What types of locations fit into the Twiggs site criteria?

A standard Twiggs franchise would generally measure 2,000 to 3,000 square feet, however, smaller or larger stores are also possible depending on size of the market.  Franchises will generally be located in community strip centers, shopping malls, and downtown business districts.  The ideal location will be in a densely populated area with a significant traffic count, high visibility, and a location near numerous traffic generating destinations.

Are there any continuing or ongoing fees after I pay the initial franchisee fee?

Yes.  You will pay an ongoing royalty fee of 5% on a monthly basis. As part of our ongoing corporate obligations, 2 cents from every take out cup sold will also be donated to our benificiary, One Kids Place. One Kids Place provides community based rehabilitation and related support services to children and youth up to the age of 19, and their families, living in the districts of Muskoka, Nipissing and Parry Sound.

Is experience in running a small business required?

While small business experience is helpful, it is not required.  You will receive step-by-step training at Twiggs headquarters to cover the important aspects of operating your business.  What will be required is a passion for both coffee and customer service.

Do I have to run the store?

You are required to be on site for a period of 24 months to ensure training policies and procedures are in place.

A System for Success

Our success is based on three fundamental principles:

  1. Selecting the best beans.
  2. Roasting our beans to perfection.
  3. Serving those finely roasted beans under the exact conditions that Twiggs’ founder, Jennifer Twigg, has developed over the last 20 years.

As a franchise partner, you will benefit from our rigorous selection and roasting process.

Training

We provide comprehensive training before and during your grand opening and will provide ongoing training and education in many forms long after you’ve served your first espresso.  Our passion is coffee and we serve Twiggs with uncompromising pride and enthusiasm.  You will too.

Systems and Controls

Processes and procedures go a long way towards making sure things run smoothly.  We provide you with tools, training, and context to help you measure your business’ progress and efficiency so you can manage it properly.

Real Estate

We share real estate resources with our portfolio of complementary concepts.  Because we represent a wide range of concepts, each with its own demographics, store footprints, and flexible design requirements, landlords call us first – and we bring energy and flexibility to their developments.  This translates to superior locations for our franchise partners.

About the Founder

Jennifer Twigg

Jennifer Twigg brings vision, passion and commitment to every aspect of her life from her family to the operation and franchising of Twiggs. For over a decade, Jennifer has been providing her customers with healthy alternatives – from fresh roasted, Fair Trade, organic coffee to homemade deli snacks and fresh made desserts and pastries.

Jennifer realized that her new way of approaching coffee would require a great deal of hard work and that she would need to convince the public that there was a right and a wrong way to brew and serve coffee. Well her hard work has paid off, and as the Twiggs Coffee Roasters brand has grown, so have the opportunities for others to deliver quality and healthy products to thier community.

Jennifer is more than a successful businesswoman; she is a caring mother and grandmother and a true community leader.
