Once you become a Bad Ass, you’re a part of the ohana (Family) – and we never let our family down. We’re here to help you succeed in every aspect of opening your store from development and training to offering ongoing support.
Your success is our success, so we’re committed to providing you with the expert advice, resources and on-going support for the major areas of your operation to ensure that you have to ensure that your success continues to grow over the life of our partnership together.
Our Bad Ass Coffee training team provides all franchise owners and managers with comprehensive training on the processes and procedures that are critical to operating your Bad Ass Coffee store successfully in compliance with our brand and operations standards. Our initial training program takes place approximately 4-5 weeks prior to your store opening in one of our certified training stores and includes a combination of classroom and hands-on in-store learning sessions. Trainees are introduced to every element of store & business management, coffee education, drink & food preparation, point-of-sale usage, visual merchandising and more. Approximately 1 week before your store opens, we conduct a “Training Tune Up” – this time in your own store and using your own equipment to ensure that you and your team have the training necessary to run your store successfully to our operations standards and that your opening day is nothing short of Bad Ass.
Through strategic partners, we work with our franchisees during their site selection process to ensure that you’re positioned for success. Immediately after franchise orientation, we’ll work with you and a strategic real estate partner to identify key location attributes and requirements to begin your search. Throughout the selection process, our store development team will consult with you and assist in narrowing down your available options until a final location is identified and approved by our team. Our strategic partner will then continue their work with you until a final lease for your location is acceptable to you and approved by our team.
Through our operations team and strategic construction partners, we’re able to provide you with all of the tools you need to build your Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii store.

From architectural drawings to the final walk-through of your new store, we’re here to ensure that your store opens on-time, on-budget and ready to be Bad Ass.
