Montana's love of coffee got us wondering; what are Montana's biggest coffee franchises? We looked all over the state to find coffee houses that have multiple locations, and we found some great qualifiers. 

Here in the Gallatin Valley, we have one coffeehouse with two locations and both are immensely popular with locals. Cold Smoke Coffee has one location on 19th, and another on Huffine Lane. Cold Smoke is one of the most beloved coffeehouses in the area because of its easy-going atmosphere, fantastic-tasting coffee, and fast service.

Another coffee franchise in Montana is Florence Coffee Company. These are coffee huts that allow people on the go to swoop in, get their cup of joe, and be on their way. Florence Coffee Co. is a beloved coffee franchise with 23 locations throughout western Montana. Hopefully, one day they will expand toward eastern Montana. 

Then, of course, we've got the iconic City Brew. There are locations in Montana, Wyoming, and North Dakota, but City Brew originally began in Billings, Montana in 1998. This is a pretty well-known franchise, and they always have fun seasonal drinks.

The final Montana coffee franchise we found was BW Blacksmith. This coffee juggernaut has several locations spread throughout Billings, Anaconda, and Butte. They also have outlets in Florida. BW Blacksmith is known for their high-quality coffee and fantastic food options to go with your morning beverage.

It's amazing to see these coffee franchises start here in Montana and continue to expand, and we can't wait to see who will be next.
