This special distinction is available to recognize new franchise systems, or new ownership and management teams, whose franchise agreements substantially conform to the AAFD Fair Franchising Standards, but that lack operating history to evaluate franchise relationships.

Cuppy’s is a specialty coffee drive thru franchise business that offers coffee, lattes, espresso and smoothie drinks. Cuppy’s is a new brand that is arising from the ashes of a much troubled brand known as Java Jo’z.

As part of its response to rebuff suggestions that its new ownership is still connected to Java Jo’z problems, Cuppy’s management has committed itself to a collaborative franchise culture that adopts high standards of mutual respect between franchisor and franchisees. Cuppy’s franchise agreement earned nearly perfect score of 99.5% conformity with the AAFD Fair Franchising Standards, the highest grade ever achieved.

Cuppy's Coffee & More, Inc. is a Texas corporation wholly owned by Mr. Doug Hibbing and is headquartered in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Medina Enterprises, Inc., an affiliated company which is owned by Mr. Robert Morgan, is the contractor for the system’s restaurants and other units, as well as a provider of office and staffing services to Cuppy’s. In May 2006, Medina acquired some of the Java Jo’z assets, including the Java Jo’z brand, which was later assigned to Cuppy’s.

The Java Jo’z brand was confronted with major issues regarding Trademark ownership, allegations of unfulfilled contracts and personal problems of its prior owner. Cuppy’s new management team assessed that the myriad of inherited problems required a radical approach to change. That approach involved re-branding, a fresh start on training and support, and most importantly a fresh start with its franchisee community.

Cuppy’s intends to build its new brand on a foundation of respect for the AAFD’s vision of Total Quality Franchising, and Cuppy’s management has committed itself to a collaborative franchise culture, and one that sets a new standard of mutual respect between franchisors and franchisees.

Doug Hibbing, the President of Cuppy’s Coffee is excited about the AAFD Accreditation, he states, “we are committed to support our franchisees, we have great products, and a great staff. Our primary goal at Cuppy’s is to build a business with a reputation for integrity; the AAFD Accreditation is a giant step in that direction.”

AAFD Chairman, Robert Purvin praised Cuppy’s Coffee for setting a new standard in fair franchising agreements, "Cuppy’s Coffee has demonstrated its commitment to fair franchising, the AAFD is delighted to welcome Cuppy’s Coffee to its list of Accredited Franchises.”

The story of Cuppy’s is a testament to the AAFD’s efforts to improve the franchising community and to reward Total Quality Franchising practices. The management team of Cuppy’s showed unprecedented willingness to accept the recommendations of the AAFD’s Fair Franchising Standards Committee.
