More About Caribou

Cabins

The Caribou Cabin concept is the vision of President & CEO, John Butcher who joined the company three years ago and has been focused on leveraging Caribou’s twenty-seven years of coffeehouse heritage and strong brand to make impactful company changes. Caribou has taken an inside- out approach to this concept, looking at faster ways to create their beloved core beverages, hiring new team members who embody the culture that will shine through the drive-thru windows, and all touch points in between. Cabin guests will be greeted daily with a warm “Welcome to the Cabin” by baristas. Internal training modules are being called ’Bou Bonfires as Caribou trains its team members on how to best live “life at the cabin”.

“Caribou Coffee will continue to lean into the Northern roots that made our brand what it is today. We are confident that our new Cabin concept will differentiate us even more by delivering customers the highest quality coffee, expanded beverage innovation and ownable guest interaction that only Caribou can deliver.” says, John Butcher, President & CEO of Caribou Coffee. “Come visit us at the Cabin and we’ll get you to your next adventure quickly…with your favorite Caribou beverage in hand.”
