Meet Our Founders

A Modest Start: Back in the early spring of 2013, Tony Vo and his wife, Annie Lam, set out to find a cozy coffee shop where they could enjoy a cup of coffee together. To their surprise, they discovered a dearth of good local coffee shops in the vicinity. This simple realization sparked an idea, leading them to inaugurate their first coffee shop in the winter of the same year, situated in Cornelius, NC.

Family Values at the Core: At Waterbean Coffee, family is the heart and soul of everything. Tony and Annie cherish their roles as parents to two wonderful daughters, Alexandria and Adrianna. Growing up, both Tony and Annie were surrounded by families of accomplished entrepreneurs. Tony's parents owned a beverage distribution company in Vietnam, while Annie's parents were successful restaurateurs and real-estate professionals. These early exposures provided them with invaluable skills and insights that would later help them establish a remarkable specialty coffee house, offering a product that stands out from the rest.

A Unique Specialty Coffee: Drawing from their collective experiences and passion for coffee, Tony and Annie have crafted a specialty coffee that is truly unparalleled and cannot be found elsewhere.

Dedicated to Franchisee Success: Understanding the importance of strong relationships with their franchisees, Tony and Annie are committed to providing all the necessary knowledge and support to ensure the success of their franchise partners. They go above and beyond to assist and empower their franchisees throughout their journey.

Join Waterbean Coffee, where the essence of family, passion for specialty coffee, and unwavering support for franchisees come together to create an exceptional coffee shop experience.
