Coffee Time is an all-Canadian success story.

Coffee Time is an all-Canadian success story, getting its start in a small coffee shop in Bolton, Ontario. Since our inception in 1982, the focus of Coffee Time has been on our customers, our products and our business partners. As a result, we have grown, and proudly continue to build our business around the globe. Coffee Time has grown dramatically across Ontario and now has expanded its operations into other international markets.

A Total Turnkey Package

The total cost of opening a Coffee Time store is typically in the range of $250,000.00 to $500,000.00. A large portion of this amount may be financed, although we recommend cash investments of at least 40%. Financing from financial institutions is available through government-supported small business loans, or we can facilitate financing for qualified candidates.

Once your location is up and running, there is a Royalty Fee of 5% of all sales per week. To support the Coffee Time brand, Chairman’s Brands will provide marketing materials such as flyers, contest promotion, and media awareness for as little as 3% per week, referred to as an Advertising Fee.
