Rapidly Growing '7 Brew Coffee' May Give Northeast Ohio Starbucks Locations a Run For Their Money

PARMA, OH – If you’ve noticed a new coffee shop popping up around Northeast Ohio, you’re not alone. 7 Brew Coffee is making waves, offering an innovative and fast-paced beverage experience that has locals buzzing. We sat down with franchisee Rick Nader to learn more about what makes 7 Brew so special and why it’s quickly becoming a favorite among coffee enthusiasts and casual drinkers alike.

"7 Brew is more than just coffee," Nader explains. "We offer over 20,000 different drink combinations, including coffee, shakes, smoothies, and energy drinks. It's an experience like no other." With such a vast menu, it’s no wonder that many former Starbucks regulars are making the switch. Customers praise 7 Brew not only for the taste but also for its speed and cost-effectiveness.


One of the standout features of 7 Brew is its double drive-thru system. Unlike traditional coffee shops where long waits can cause anxiety, 7 Brew’s system is designed for efficiency. As soon as you pull up, a team of ‘texters’ runs out to your car to take your order on a tablet. Inside, the team gets to work immediately, ensuring that by the time you reach the front, your drinks are ready to go. "Our texters will keep working further and further back down the line," says Nader. "Let's say the first car has six drinks and it's a bigger order, and the next three cars behind them all have one drink. We'll run all those drinks out, and all four cars will leave at the same time."


But 7 Brew isn’t just about fast service and great drinks. The company is deeply committed to the communities it serves. At today’s grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Parma location on Pleasant Valley Road, 7 Brew presented a check to the Boys and Girls Club. Nader emphasized the importance of community involvement, stating, "What's really important to our company is being a part of the community. We will do things with the local schools and participate in local fundraisers. It's about giving back."


The grand opening was a festive affair, with smiles all around from both customers and staff. The atmosphere was lively, and the excitement was palpable. The team members, both inside and outside the building, were enthusiastic and clearly enjoyed their work. Nader attributes this to the company’s culture and operational efficiency. "This building was built in Tennessee, put on the back of a hauler, rolled up I-71 into Parma, a couple of big cranes picked it up, took it over, and dropped it on the foundation that was poured. Then the next four to five weeks are spent just connecting the plumbing, and the wiring, and putting in the parking lot, but it's an awesome process."


In addition to the Parma location, 7 Brew has five other locations in Ohio, primarily in Northeast Ohio, with a new one set to open in Middleburg Heights in a few weeks. And that’s just the beginning. Nader revealed ambitious expansion plans: "Over the next five years, we have a commitment to have 65 in the state of Ohio."


7 Brew also engages with the community through special events like ‘Swag Day,’ where customers who order a large drink receive a free shirt. The first two customers on Swag Day get free coffee for a year. "Swag Day is a very exciting day," Nader says. "You better get here early if you want to be first in line, because it's been really, really early that people have gotten in line for that deal."


Despite being a newer player in the market, 7 Brew is already making a significant impact. Its commitment to efficiency, customer service, and community involvement sets it apart. The combination of quick service, high-quality beverages, and a welcoming atmosphere has made 7 Brew a fast favorite.


As we wrapped up our conversation, Nader reflected on the company's mission: "We might not have the massive giving budget of a company that might advertise during the Super Bowl, but that doesn't mean that we can't do our part to make a positive impact in the local communities we are a part of."


With its unique approach and dedication to quality, 7 Brew is poised to become a staple in Northeast Ohio and beyond. If you haven’t yet experienced 7 Brew, now is the perfect time to stop by and see what all the buzz is about. And with many more locations planned, it’s likely a 7 Brew will be coming to a neighborhood near you soon.
