Because local matters.
Cup o’ Joe works with local businesses to produce most of what you drink and eat.
When we started Cup o’ Joe in 1988, we saw the potential for cultural and social development in sleepy Columbus. Jump to the present and you find a new Columbus, one that boasts talented residents and businesses all connecting to serve local customers who choose local with pride.
Because this is our home, too, we work hard to foster that local spirit.
Cup o’ Joe is a sponsor of Local Matters, an Ohio not-for-profit group working to make our food system more secure and prosperous.
We also proudly carry delicious sweets and treats from local companies like Sugardaddy’s, Pattycake Bakery, Sammy’s Bagels and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. We also hire baristas who live near their respective locations, this way we retain the urban mood in each of the neighborhoods we serve.
There are Cup o’ Joe Coffee Houses in just about every part of the city, even one in Port Columbus Airport that welcomes you home or gives prospective residents another reason to stay. Each of our locations has a distinct personality, too, so you don’t feel like you’re spending time in another corporate coffee house whose primary stockholders live somewhere hundreds of miles away.
Our hearts beat to the rhythm of the city and our stomachs are filled with its local goodness.
We are Cup o’ Joe. We are Columbus.
If you are a local business interested in a partnership with Cup o’ Joe please contact us.
