FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., US – Seven Brew Drive-Thru Coffee (“Seven Brew”) today announced it has received a majority investment from Drink House Holdings (“DHH”), an executive and entrepreneur led partnership focused exclusively on the consumer sector. The Company also unveiled plans to launch its franchising program, fueling accelerated growth and expansion across the country. As a purpose-driven brand, Seven Brew plans to grow with likeminded, world-class institutional and independent franchise partners across the U.S.
Founded in 2016 by a love for coffee and a passion for cultivating kindness, Seven Brew was welcomed with enthusiasm by coffee lovers in Northwest Arkansas and has created a deeply loyal customer following.

The authenticity of Seven Brew uniquely positions the concept to be successful across a wide-ranging customer demographic and geographies.
Drink House Holdings (“DHH”) is led by Jamie B. Coulter, a long-time leader and visionary in the restaurant business, and Jimmy John Liautaud, the founder and former chairman of Jimmy John’s sandwich chain. The management team brings a combination of operating, investing, real estate, financial and transaction experience, and has worked together for several decades, creating noteworthy shareholder value in their past experiences. Tried-and-true management strategies from DHH’s best-in-class franchising experience will empower the brand’s vision of becoming a leading global restaurant brand.
“We believe the drive-thru category is ripe for reinvention and rapid growth and we’re well positioned to disrupt and lead,” said Jimmy John Liautaud of DHH. “We admire the Brew Crew’s passion towards fearlessly exploring new ideas, ingredients, and connections that help us learn more about ourselves, each other, and our communities.”
