Sweetwaters was founded in 1993 by Lisa and Wei Bee in Ann Arbor, MI. They specialize in handcrafted artisanal drinks and a limited food menu, creating a café model that is highly profitable and scalable for its franchise owners. Opening a Sweetwaters franchise of your own puts you in the driver’s seat to owning your own business and creating a meaningful place for people to study, relax, and connect.
Sweetwaters carries a variety of coffees, teas and desserts, as well as lighter fare like yogurt parfaits, quiches, sandwiches and salads. Ice cream-based drinks, real fruit smoothies, and daily-made whipped cream will be found there as well.
The only thing better than your favorite Sweetwaters location is living the Sweetwaters lifestyle. If you are a caring, fun-loving individual with a passion for community and a knack for managing young talent, Sweetwaters is the franchise for you.
The coffee shop business is driven by a unique set of characteristics that are unmatched in business ownership. Sweetwaters provides affordable luxury to a loyal and diverse community of guests who establish a regular routine of frequenting their locations.
