The Green Beans Story...
Green Beans Coffee Company got its start by offering some of the comforts of home to the men and women of the U.S. Military, deployed at bases overseas and in areas of conflict. The Omaha location is the first independently-owned café to open in the U.S.
Born in Springfield, Illinois and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska, John Sievers entered the Air Force in June of 1988. He was introduced to Green Beans Coffee while deployed to Afghanistan in 2007. After 26 years of active duty service, John retired in July 2014. His love for country, his passion for leading small teams of people, and his love of coffee inspired the opening Green Beans Coffee Omaha on 12 October, 2014. His wife, Angela, is the co-owner. She grew up on the east coast of Canada and is an elementary school teacher. John’s two older daughters, Kirstyn and Kelsey, are both great helpers around the cafe. John and Angela have a daughter, Johanna, who is the “manager” of L’il Beans. View the videos below for a better look at this fast-growing business.
