7 Brew Coffee – A Coffee Revolution
Back in the ’90s, Ron Crume (an Oregon native), saw a thriving community in Northwest Arkansas, but for Crume, something was missing. The community lacked the aromatic, full-bodied flavor of coffee that he was used to on the West Coast.
Ron had the vision to open a drive-thru coffee shop that would offer not only hot and cold coffee but one that would also offer a variety of drinks. He wanted to create a coffee culture that is very welcoming, enthusiastic, and always upbeat.
Unfortunately, Ron was preoccupied with work, and he had to set aside his vision of a drive-thru coffee shop. As the years passed, Ron still has not let go of his coffee shop dream.

In 2015, a simple Crume family visit to Arkansas ignited Ron’s coffee shop dream and in 2015, the 7 Brew Coffee story began. 7 Brew Coffee started with just one store in Roger, AR in February 2017, and now they have 15 branches all over Arkansas. 7 Brew Coffee has 3 franchisees that are planning to open several branches across the country.
The first franchisee, P2 Brew LLC is opening a branch in 2415 N.E. Vivion in early June, another branch in Lee’s Summit location next to Whataburger, and another one on Highway 76 in Missouri.
Mean Bean Development LLC, the second area franchisee, is planning on opening in 20 locations which include 15 areas in the metro. The third franchisee, EBS Investments LLC in Overland Park, owned by Benjamin Stites and an anonymous partner is planning to open 4 branches in Overland Park by 2024.
What Exactly is 7 Brew Coffee and How Does It Work?
7 Brew Coffee is a drive-thru coffee shop that focuses on bringing high-quality, locally roasted, and fresh coffee beans to the market. They have a retro design that fits around a toll-booth style kiosk, serving modern and innovative coffee recipes.
The company is based in the Seattle area, and they are committed to sourcing beans from around the world. They bring in beans from some of the best producers around the world like Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Jamaica, Kenya, and more.
