We’re excited to welcome Regina and Ryan French and their French Express Coffee House to the Crimson Cup community!
On Dec. 17, the mother-and-son team held the grand opening of their new coffee shop at 2087 Dale Earnhardt Blvd. in Kannapolis, just 30 minutes from downtown Charlotte, N.C.
This “groovy coffee house offering amazing hot and cold coffee dreams” features a drive thru as well as a roomy interior with a stage for open mic nights. The store was designed by the owners’ cousin Randolph James of Magnolia Emporium.
After serving as a North Carolina State Trooper, Ryan decided it was time for a change of pace. When he spoke to mom Regina about opening a coffee shop, she lived just blocks away from the Crimson Cup Coffee House in Clintonville, Ohio. Having experienced the quality of the coffee and service, she recommended Crimson Cup as the perfect fit for the new venture.
Through our Seven Steps to Success coffee franchise alternative program, the Frenches learned everything they needed to open French Express.
Since 1991, Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea has hand-roasted great-tasting specialty coffee in Columbus, Ohio. We’ve also taught more than 250 independent business owners how to open a coffee shop through our coffee shop franchise alternative program.
