The Human Bean will begin serving coffee and other specialty beverages in Alpharetta this weekend.
The new location at 870 McFarland Parkway opening Nov. 4 will serve specialty-grade coffee, real-fruit smoothies, whole-leaf teas, and hot breakfast items to-go.
Aaron Nickelson, who owns several locations of The Human Bean with a longtime friend, said the team looks forward to providing customers with the highest quality products and exceptional customer service – all with a signature chocolate-covered espresso bean on top.
“We’ve got an excited team who have been training and preparing for this grand opening,” Nickelson said in a press release. “They’re ready to start sharing the energy here and serve the friendly faces who come through our drive-thru in Alpharetta.”
The new drive-thru is one of several in metro Atlanta.
The Human Bean has grown from a single location in southern Oregon to a nationwide brand over the last 24 years. Drive-thru stands throughout the U.S. are primarily owned and operated by individual franchisees like Nickelson, who have a passion for bringing “coffee with a smile” to their communities. There are currently more than 300 locations open or under development in 25 states.
All of The Human Bean drive-thrus participate in yearly fundraisers, collectively raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for women’s and men’s cancer prevention and treatment.
All of the money raised by the Alpharetta drive-thru location will stay in the community and be given to a local organization of the staff’s choosing.
The location will be open 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
