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 only stores have two drive thru lanes serving 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 brand new coffee concept started in 2017. The first store opened in the Dallas Fort Worth area in 2017. The second opened in DFW in 2018 and four more stores are opening in DFW this year. By the end of next year we will have 20 stores open and under construction with plans for 50 the following 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.
