Cuppy’s Coffee Franchisees Seek Help From Attorney Generals

Cuppy’s Coffee franchisees are contacting the Florida Attorney General and asking for help getting hundreds of thousands of dollars they entrusted with Cuppy’s Coffee to be returned to them.

They are also seeking assistance from the Attorney General of Indiana, home of Elite Manufacturing, the entity that took most of their deposits.

They are contacting the Attorney General of Alabama for Assistance, the home of Cuppy’s Coffee parent company FranSynergy.

And they are contacting the Attorney General of their own home states, which allegedly include New Mexico, California, Virginia, Illinois, Michigan and several others.

    I”ve worked for SBT. for a couple years and I feel like I am stuck in the middle of a real bad elemetary school playground fight!

    Some say that there is no actual SBT – that it was just a sham to get the state funding, and now it’s just a way to bankrupt Elite so it doesn’t have to pay all the franchisees it owes refunds.
    Is SBT is a real company? Who is Alvin Handshoe? Does he have a manufacturing or construction background?

    I’m a little confused. The impression I got from reading the press release about SBT was that they were a new company as of the end of 2007. Did they already exist? If so, what kind of products did they produce?

    Regardless – I finally got on the bandwagon and filed a complaint with the AG’s office in Florida. I’m hoping to get some sort of response from them soon. If you already filed with them, did you get a response?
