The Gloria Jean's Coffee Story
Gloria Jean's Coffee is quickly becoming one of the most well known and popular brands in coffee the market. Why is it so popular, you may ask? Gloria Jean's Coffee has been providing excellent specialty-flavored whole bean coffees for over 29 years. Now, that same great Gloria Jean taste comes in K-Cups, as well. Back in 1979, a couple named Ed and Gloria Jean Kvetko bought a small gift shop in a little town north of Chicago, Illinois. In this shop, they sold their yummy gourmet coffees. Soon thereafter, they had a following of people who wanted more and more of their amazing coffee, and who would travel from miles away just to get it. Since there was such a high demand, naturally the popularity of Gloria Jean's Coffee increased, and soon the couple began franchising their coffee. Throughout the 1980s, it became available in more and more Chicago markets, bringing those who loved coffee as much as the Kvetkos did an unbelievable variety of flavors and roasts to choose from. Today, Gloria Jean's has grown to be one of the largest mall-based retailers of specialty coffees in North America. From day one, Gloria Jean's has been committed to providing a selection of quality gourmet coffees that people have grown to love. The coffee beans are carefully harvested, roasted and packaged to maintain freshness from the moment they are picked to the moment they're brewed. Gloria Jean's high standards throughout the coffee production process ensure that their coffee is the finest you can buy.
