About It’s A Grind

Founded in 1994 in Long Beach, California, It’s A Grind’s mission is to provide high-quality signature coffee, espresso beverages and delicious food offerings in a comfortable and locally-focused atmosphere.  With 30 coffee houses across five international locations, It’s A Grind has growing brand recognition and loyal customers base, priding itself on top notch customer service and an exceptional experience.  At It’s A Grind, the customer is recognized by his or her first name, rather than their drink order.

Sourcing its coffee from around the globe, It’s A Grind then roasts each batch in Southern California, ensuring consistently fresh, smooth and flavorful coffee.

It’s A Grind offers a distinct neighbourhood feeling at each of their coffee houses, and each one has its own individual character; capturing the independent coffee house culture, while also maintaining the integrity of the coffee that made our brand famous.  We are not just a coffee house, but a unique community within four walls.
