A graduate of Jesuit and Loyola University New Orleans, Roy Bruno started working at PJ’s Coffee as a college student and barista. Today, at only 34 years old, Roy is a PJ’s Coffee franchisee in the process of opening his sixth location inside 333 Canal Place, replacing a national behemoth with the beloved local brand that started in 1978. In his nine years as a multi-store owner, Roy has sold over a million cups of coffee, and he attributes his success and growth to PJ’s dedicated, passionate employees and the quality, locally roasted coffee that they provide customers. Community is also important to Roy, who supports local every chance he gets.
