Gloria Jean’s Coming to Crown Point

Gloria Jean’s Coffees is coming to Crown Point, IN at the start of 2019. The new 2,000 square foot building will be located at 200 E. 109th Avenue on the corner of Broadway and 109th Avenue. Local franchisee, Raed Naser’s love for Gloria Jean’s Coffees started years ago when he lived in Jordan and visited the coffee shop often. His wife, Noor Musleh, has a similar history with the brand as her first job was a barista at a Gloria Jean’s mall location. Now he and Noor along with his brother and his family are excited to open a Gloria Jean’s of their own.

After this opening, Raed has committed to grow in the region with seven additional stores in the next five years.

Gloria Jean’s Coffees is the largest mall-based retailer of specialty coffees in North America. The company’s first store opened in 1979. The company aims to open 50 to 75 locations globally in the next several years. It’s among the brands that owners Retail Food Group (RFG) announced last year it would position for U.S. expansion, including Donut King, Brumby’s Bakery and Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar. RFG acquired the Gloria Jean’s Coffees brand in 2014. It has 60 U.S. franchisees, five of which are opening stores in the next month.
