Colorado-based Ziggi’s Coffee is opening its first location within a tribal community at 1269 Valley Center Road in Valley Center, California, thanks to a partnership with San Pasqual Economic Development Corp. Owned by the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians and established under Tribal, the organization’s mission is to develop the tribe’s long-term strategy of sustainable economic self-sufficiency.
“We didn’t want to partner with just any coffee company,” SPEDC President and CEO Hellyaachwehay Quisquis said in a company press release.”We wanted to find a partner that fit in and believes in our values and mission to build on the next seven generations of our tribe. I was pleased to find that Ziggi’s Coffee and SPEDC share the same values of integrating family and community.”
Construction for the drive-thru location will begin in June with an anticipated opening date of fall 2023.
“We are so excited about the franchise agreement with the San Pasqual Tribe (San Pasqual Economic Development Corporation),” Justin Livingston, VP of franchise development at Ziggi’s Coffee, said in the release. “This is the first Tribal agreement for Ziggi’s Coffee and hopefully the first of many. Ziggi’s worked with the great folks at the SPEDC to help navigate this new area of tribal relationships. By bringing Ziggi’s into this community, we hope to expand that model and work with the many amazing and diverse tribes across the country to create a mutual benefit for all involved and bring the Ziggi’s community-focused brand to these already tight-knit communities.”
