Tully’s Coffee chain brand has expanded in to 17 states in western part of USA, and has become one of the most prominent coffee chain places. Tully’s coffee started its operations with own stores and then expanded with franchise model in continents outside North America.


South Korea and Japan tweaked the menu and sells iconic recipes of Tully’s and a variety of ice creams, baked goods, coffee related supplies. They believed in their products strongly and operated on customer loyalty and opened their stores right next to coffee shops like Starbucks and gave a run for their money with distinct offerings. Their expansion strategy was to pull the crowds to next door of an established shop so that their customer acquisition costs would come down. On the flip side because of this strategy, it remained as the brand which is colloquially called, “that place right next Starbucks”. For fourteen years after inception they haven’t seen net profits because of the continuous expansion that took place. That very next year, in 2007 they went against initial plans of floating an IPO but decided against that due to volatile market, which in hindsight was a great step considering the subprime crisis of 2008. They cleared off debt by selling their coffee bean business in North America to Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in 2009, post which they expanded with 100 stores on South Korea.We can call Tom O’Keefe a wizard who established a brand in 18 years with global presence and more importantly a positive net profit. The revenue of this company is 0.24 US billion dollars making it as the tenth largest coffee chain in the world in terms of revenue.

Revenues in billions: $0.242
