Caribou coffee is the second-largest coffee retailer in the United States, that they have ranked first in recent years in taste test for flavor. This company began in Minnesota, and now the caribou coffee franchise includes 460 coffee shops in 18 states in the eastern and central regions of the country. It is second to only the Starbucks corporation franchise in terms of size and the number of stores. Carabou coffee has had its up's and downs since it was founded in 1992. But the company's story is very in inspiring and in interesting to up and coming entrepreneurs.

In 1990, while on a trip to the wilderness of Alaska, the founding members of Caribou John and Kim Puckett, encountered a beautiful site. While they were climbing to the top of Sable Mountain, they saw in the valley below a herd of Carabou running by. What happened then was they took this vision home to Minnesota with them, and a couple of short years later they opened the first Caribou coffee shop in Edina, Minnesota. This started them on that path to their dreams. And it resulted in the company which strives for the highest quality of products and service in the coffee business today.
