  • GA Tyrone Cafe w/ DriveThru [OPEN] Owner: Pinky Legaspi

    Hi Sean. You can probably update mine as OPEN-DEBRANDED or however you want to name it.

    I opened Dec 2008 as Grand Coffee.

    You can change mine to OPEN-DEBRANDED just like Pinky’s. Our address is:
    Benefield Coffee Co.

    Carrollton, GA 30117
    We opened November 3, 2008

    Thanks for all you do Sean!

  • Sad news… Claudia & Alan Robbins have decided to close their Wilmington, DE Cuppy’s Coffee location.

    Just this past November we wrote how the Robbins’ had to battle the odds to get open: “Little did they know, the Robbins would have to battle through the change in the ownership of Cuppy’s Coffee & Elite Manufacturing, missed deadlines, broken promises, fallout from a lawsuit against Elite Manufacturing by subcontractor SBT, and the seeming collapse of both the franchisor and its construction arm.”

    “During the process, the Robbins’ reportedly had to seize control of their own building process and oversee their own contractors to get their buildout finished, incurring additional costs and a 7 month delay in the process.”

    We wish Claudia & Alan the best of luck in all future endeavors.

  • 2 of the largest and most successful Geeks on Call owners filed for Chapter 11 protection and a lawsuit in federal court on May 15. see the following link to one of them:

    According to the docket they named 3 corporate individuals; Richard Cole; CEO; Rich Artese; COO and Keith Wesp; CFO, personally along with the corporation they own stock and work for Geeks on Call America and Geeks on Call Holdings.

    For more information or to join suit with other current or former franchise owners the lawyer handling the cases is below.

  • what does Geeks on Call have to do with Cuppys?

  • Jonathan

    Clawson MI is closed and for sale according to the sign at their location.

  • Criston Menz

    Just wondering what the status is, if any at all. Last time I spoke to the FL Dept of Ag and Consumer Services, he had the file regarding, but just beginning to look at it. He did say that the statue of limitations for this type of fraud is 4 years. That date is drawing close for some of us.

  • Cindy

    I just heard from Diane Check on Facebook. Very sad to say that they will be closing their drive thru in Greece, NY 31 October.

  • The stores in Port Charlotte, FL and on U.S. 41 in Venice, FL have closed.

  • Does anybody know if the Cuppy’s in Lakeland, FL has closed? It opened about the same time as my Java Joz.

  • Roberto

    you can contact lili tran using facebook, she’s the vulgar asian girl located in panama city beach.

  • I happen to love Lily Tran & so do many other people!

    You can contact “Roberto” at He/she is the idiot, who is either too stupid or too lazy to capitalize proper nouns and doesn’t know when to use a semicolon in a sentence AND who [evidently] hides behind the name “Roberto” so that he/she can trash people without just cause or ramifications.

  • I happen to respect and admire Lily Tran & so do many other people!

    You can contact “Roberto” at He/she is the idiot, who is either too stupid or too lazy to capitalize proper nouns, doesn’t know when to use a semicolon in a sentence AND who [evidently] hides behind the name “Roberto” so that he/she can randomly trash people without fear of hostile response.

  • Philip

    who could respect someone like that??? and what anyone would respect her would do on this forum? be serious lili you are ridiculous…

  • Rancho Cucamonga is closed and so is Shalimar.

  • Dennis

    Just picked up a coffee from Cuppy’s in Wheatland, CA. You can call it open. Great staff and service.

  • Mike Wallace

    ? McKinney Texas Store:

    This store is not open (closed September 2008). Ours was one of the first to hang the stupid Cuppy’s sign. I took it down two months later and went independent. Unfortunately, the financial losses we suffered at the hand of Morgan and Cuppy’s were too much and the business failed.

  • Omar rafik

    I opened cuppys in 2007 at Whitney field mall Leominster ma I had the worse experience in my life it’s closed now since 2010 and I’m still paying my loan I lost about 250 k I’m losing my mind not only lost my business I lost my marriage too

  • Marta Alvarado

    I too, opened cuppys in 2007@ the Whitney field mall in leominster ma. Lost everything! my business, my partner, family & friend, I gave everything and got nothing!!!!!

  • Cuppy’s in Pineville, LA was closed when I moved here in 10/2014. Not sure how long it’s been closed, still has sign and graphic paintings on windows, in its strip mall unit. Looks cleaned out- too bad, there Is like one coffee shop in this entire town!

  • Tina Mickelson

    Cuppys in Rockford Illinois closed in July of 2009. Roy Snowden ripped us off of our money and then we were unable to get supplies. Here we are in 2016 and still living the terror of the debacle. We attended Coffee College and all seemed legit. Snowden belongs behind bars.

  • Cuppys is a scam. I got shellacked for $40,000 even thought i took them to court and the Judge ruled in my favor. I never was able to get any of my money back. Reported the scam to the FBI in Florida. Went back and forth with them for about a year and a half and got no where. The FBI dropped the case. Cuppy’s people ran. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY. The screwed millions of dollars out of unsuspecting franchisers. Stay away from them. They don’t honor contracts.

  • Hugh J

    I live here in Greenville, SC.. the address that is supposedly their HQ downtown seems to be the same address as Roost Restaurant at the Hyatt Hotel (according to Google Maps).. there’s a lot of great businesses there; Starbucks, Kilwin’s Chocolate and Roost Restaurant, but not a Cuppy’s to be found!

    What do you say about a franchisor who doesn’t have a location in their own hometown? (/s)
