Regina and Benjamin Lyles founded Bikini Beans Coffee in Phoenix in 2014. The couple moved to Arizona from the world center for coffee roasting, Seattle, Washington, bringing with them ample expertise and a kindled passion for all things coffee. With high entrepreneurial spirits amidst a sweltering state, they knew an ordinary coffee shop just wasn’t enough.
OUR AZ COFFEE SHOPS
So instead, Regina and Benjamin Lyles embarked on a wholly unique concept—something that would distinguish their Arizona coffee shops from the leading coffee franchises in one of the hottest states in the country. And that’s when the idea came to them: Bikini Baristas.
Bikini Beans is more than just a bikini coffee shop. It’s a powerhouse that uplifts coffee enthusiasts, tea drinkers, and protein shake lovers alike through a unique business model that empowers individuals to demonstrate self confidence. Most importantly, they use quality coffee beans that are roasted right in the valley. Bikini Beans wanted their customers to feel appreciated and recognized as an individual, not simply a transaction. To achieve this, Bikini Beans focuses diligently on the details: remembering customers’ names and orders, asking guests to try their drink before leaving, and waving goodbye with a friendly smile.
