CC’s Coffee House is expanding, with plans to have 50 locations open by the end of 2017. There are currently 33 stores, mostly in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Lafayette and the plan is to triple the number of shops in three to five years. Director of licensing expansion with CC’s, Mark Verges, says the company takes pride in what they do.

“A goal is to do it better than anyone else, for us and our franchisees, we want them to be passionate, passionate about CC’s Coffee House and that experience.”

Verges says new locations in Youngsville, Carencro and Alexandria are opening up within the next two weeks and stores in Covington, Houma and Port Allen are right behind. He says there is one location in Mississippi with plans to continue to expand into Texas and Alabama.

“We want to make sure that we continue to strengthen our strongly held current position, which is the Louisiana market, but we also want to grow conservatively and smart into the surrounding markets.”

Verges says the company believes they have the right partners to continue to successfully expand their brand.

“You want to be constantly good and great with your product but you also want to give your guests a reason to stick around and we look to provide that experience, not only in Louisiana but the markets that we grow in.”
