Cumming, Georgia (June 14, 2023) – Ellianos Coffee, a southeast-based drive-thru coffee chain, is expanding into Forsyth and Dawson Counties in Georgia, announcing a newly signed four-store agreement. Ellianos reports that it signed the deal with new franchisees Karen Summerlin, Olivia Summerlin, and Ross Rutland, eager to open their stores and soon serve the area’s residents specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, breakfast items, and more.

A contact at Ellianos reported on the four-unit agreement stating, “We could not be more excited to bring the amazing ‘Italian Quality at America’s Pace’ concept to even more communities in Georgia. We already have a strong, loyal customer base in Georgia and know even more customers in the Cumming, Georgia area will soon find their favorite cup of coffee.”

The new franchisees for the area commented on the new venture, “We are so excited to be growing with the Ellianos Coffee team. There is so much momentum with the brand, and we’re happy to be a part!” They recall tasting Ellianos drinks for the first time, noticing the quality, and knowing they had to become franchisees themselves.

Over the past year, the popular drive-thru coffee brand has experienced accelerated growth, broadening its footprint in Florida and Georgia and offering territories in several other states. In addition to Jacksonville, Ellianos will soon come to Sarasota, Tampa, Leesburg, and Orlando and is continually developing in the surrounding areas.

Ellianos Coffee offers specialty espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, latte freezers, and more. One customer favorite is the Caramel Freezer – a sweet blend of smooth espresso, sweet caramel, and ice cream. They also serve various food items such as hearty breakfast grit bowls, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, cookies, brownies, chicken salad croissants, and more.
