The Human Bean is a drive-thru coffee shop offering quality coffee and espresso that originally started on the West Coast in 1988. Our client discovered the brand and decided to bring this West Coast favorite to the East Coast through a franchise development agreement. Once the development agreement was penned, our client CAPE AM tapped the expertise of the MPS restaurant design group to bring the project to fruition.
To begin the process, we reimagined the West Coast design for an East Coast audience, incorporating architectural elements connecting the brand to the region. Features include a combination of brick, horizontal siding, and board and batten accents. Custom wall sconces with the Human Bean logo were incorporated into the façade design to add visual interest through a branding opportunity. The 560 SF rectangular building includes a drive-thru window on each side, a walk-up window at the front, and outdoor seating.
