KNOXVILLE - Just Love Coffee, a rapidly expanding franchise craft beverage company based in Brentwood, Tennessee, is expanding its footprint with the opening of its first location in Knoxville on Tuesday, August 22. Located downtown at 1710 Cumberland Avenue, General Manager Alexander Beasley says the curious customers have been dropping by to ask when the café will open, and many are surprised to learn the shop has an all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu in addition to premium roasted coffees.

The cafe will open just in time for the beginning of the U.T. football season.

“We’re different from other coffee shops that only offer snacks or pastries,” said Beasley. “For breakfast we have burritos, biscuits, avocado toast, all kinds of artisan waffles and a Bacon Tater. For lunch and dinner, the menu includes grilled chicken wraps, a Roast Beef & Cheddar Melt, Chicken Quesadillas, fresh salads, soups and more. All this plus just about any kind of coffee you can think of – drip coffee, cold brews, Cappuccinos, Espresso, Macchiatos, and Signature Lattes with amazing flavors – we’ve got it all!”

The location at “The Strip” is the first of three stores planned in Kille. Beasley, a restaurant veteran who spent many years at Cracker Barrel, said he was attracted to Just Love Coffee because of the company’s core values and culture.

“Just Love Coffee is committed to being a catalyst for love,” Beasley explained. “Their commitment to being involved and helping the communities they serve is simply amazing. Our Knoxville locations will all be involved with community outreach, and I am looking forward to partnering with like-minded organizations in the area.”

With more than 50 locations nationwide and 30 more in various stages of development, Just Love Coffee is one of the fast-growing coffee franchises in the U.S. Founded in 2009 by current CEO Robb Webb and his wife, Emily, the company’s “Eat, Drink, and Love” mantra grew out of a need to make the world a better place. The brand serves fair trade, organic, or direct trade coffee only, and has been named a finalist three times for Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine. In addition to specialty hand roasted, artisan coffees and hand crafted beverages, the company’s “Cause Coffees” are extremely popular, and include a Lifesaver Blend, which supports first responders, Roots of Love, which supports foster care and adoptive families, Serve Strong, which supports the Armed Services and their families, Essential Blend, which supports healthcare workers and their families, and Spectrum Blend, which supports individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
