IT'S A GOOD DAY... TO HAVE A GOOD DAY
About 151 Coffee.
151 Coffee is not your typical coffee shop. Fun and happiness drive our culture and music drives our speed, that’s why we live by the 151 motto “it’s a good day to have a good day.”
Each of our drive-thru stores serves the best tasting coffee and blended energy drinks faster than anyone. If you’re thirsty and looking for a tasty beverage to buzz your day, drive thru, say hi, and drive with the 151 vibe.
It’s a Good Day to, have a Good Day.
History of 151 Coffee.
151 Coffee is a whole new coffee concept started in 2017. The first location opened in the Dallas Fort Worth area in 2017. The second opened in Flower Mound, TX in 2018. In January 2020, we had the grand opening for location number three in Plano, TX, with six additional locations opening in the Dallas Fort Worth area this year.
151 Coffee is founded and funded by Mark Wattles, who has founded and financed multiple national $100MM to $2B companies, including restaurants, B2C online companies, and a 2000 store retail chain that opened a new store a day at its peak.
At 151, we intend to leverage the experience of our founder and the 151 Team to grow rapidly and create opportunities for our employees while never forgetting our #1 mission; to have fun! It’s a Good Day to have a Good Day.
Meet the Founder, Mark Wattles
Mark is a highly accomplished entrepreneur with a strong background in business development and growth. Born and raised in both Santa Monica and Texas, he developed a passion for surfing, wakeboarding, and snowboarding from a young age. Instead of pursuing a traditional college education, Mark chose to dive into the world of business and has since built an impressive portfolio of successful ventures including:
Hollywood Entertainment, Inc (Hollywood Video and Game Crazy) which he started in 1988 and grew from one store to 1000 corporate-owned stores in just ten years. The company reached $2 Billion in revenue and built 2000 company-owned stores, and Mark sold the company in 2005.
Co-founder of HomeAdvisor.com, a B2C online service that provides a home improvement marketplace, which was sold to IAC/Interactive Corp (Nasdaq: IAC).
Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, a full-service restaurant chain that now boasts 45 locations across 18 states. He was one of four partners who built the company and sold a majority stake to Angelo Gordon, a private equity firm. The company has been named one of the "breakout brands" by Nation's Restaurant News.
