Jackie Chan is a well known actor. His stunts are amazing and entertaining. He is great at combining comedy and action. He is also quite a businessman.
Coffee is the latest venture of Mr. Chan. His coffee company, Jackie’s Java Co. Ltd, has partnered with Hometown Coffee Co of Bridgeville, Pennsylvania as the source for their beans and retail branding services. Jackie’s Java in fact already has several stores or kiosks in China and it has recently signed a franchise agreement for 20 shops in the Philippines.
Jackie Chan’s name may be what lures people in, but it will be up to the coffee to keep them coming back. Hometown Coffee will need to ensure that the recipes and menus they make for this venture are spot on. The coffee comes from all over the world but all are roasted in the US before being shipped to Jackie’s Java Co Ltd.
It will be interesting to taste a cup of Jackie’s Java. A crew with a good kick in it for those times when you need it will surely be a trademark of this shop.
