Are you a Cuppy’s Coffee franchise “depositer” who is or was being repaid some or all of your refundable deposit to Cuppy’s Coffee or Elite Manufacturing?
Did you receive – or are you receiving – the promised payments in accordance with the schedule set forth by the company?
Please share your payment status with us – either by leaving a comment or sending a confidential email to unhappyfranchisee[at]gmail.com. How much is the original amount they owe you, and how much was the settlement plan you agreed to? You don’t have to use your real name or other identifying info if you don’t want to.
I have heard from several people that they signed a settlement agreement with as little as hundreds of dollars upfront. They received a few payments totalling a couple thousand dollars and the payments stopped. I am interested to know if they stopped paying because of the cash flow issues, or whether they simply make 4 payments and then stop… never having intended to pay back the whole amount.
The agreements they offer could, in essence, transform $35K – $45K debts into a form of contract that can be wiped away in the event of bankruptcy, and they buy the silence of those that cheated for $2K… and the Internet goes silent, paving the way for more unsuspecting “depositers” who don’t know what’s about to hit them…
