The Williams Story
Williams Coffee Pub made its entry into the growing Fast Casual restaurant segment in 1993 with the opening of its first location in Stratford, Ontario. The founders of Williams Coffee Pub envisioned a concept that provided fast service and offered tasty, high quality products enjoyed in a relaxed and affordable atmosphere – a combination that made Williams Coffee Pub a unique experience in the industry.
In May 2004, two shareholders joined the company to assist in taking Williams to the next level. One of them, Dean Braund, brought with him a disciplined approach to all areas of the business along with a support team of passionate and committed individuals. Following a year as the key stakeholder, multi unit franchisee and director, Dean took the reigns of Williams Coffee Pub along with controlling interest in January 2006.
