Don’t get ripped off by franchises « Scobleizer – Tech Geek Blogger

OK, Now I have seen it, we have a company giving an offical statement as a comment for a blogger, whats next; cats and dogs living together? 

Official Statement from Cuppy’s Coffee & More

In May 2006, Medina Enterprises, a Nevada based company, purchased the assets of Java Jo’z Coffee & More, LLC, and Emerald Coast Manufacturing Inc. From this transaction, the principle owner of Medina formed an association with another individual, and Cuppy’s Coffee & More, an international coffee franchise, emerged.

Through this transaction, Cuppy’s Coffee obtained the rights to the logos, assumed the leases and acquired a majority of the equipment. A majority of the former employees of Java Jo’z were offered positions and are now employed at Cuppy’s.

Java Jo’z still exists as a licensing company and is owned by Kim Snowden. Roy and Kim Snowden have no financial, operational, or legal association with Cuppy’s Coffee.

Although Cuppy’s Coffee holds no legal obligation to provide marketing, operational, or product support to the Java Jo’z customers, Cuppy’s has chosen to offer these services to the Java Jo’z owners.

Since August 2006, Cuppy’s Coffee has been inviting any coffee business (including Java Jo’z customers) the opportunity to convert into a Cuppy’s franchise. For conversion details please contact Rudy Harper at

  1. No, it gets even weirder.
    The Death of the Blogosphere OR Who’s Killing the Cuppy’s Java Jo’z Blog Dialogue?

  2. Sean,
    Man, I can’t believe that it is coming to this:


  3. Cuppy’s and Java Jo’z
    Ok well it seems the whole Cuppy’s / Java Jo’z whole world is going mad. How a company trying to avoid some much deserved bad press can go around deleting and rerouting url from blogs and legit web sites! I have been following all of this very closley mainly because I randomly Googled ROY Snowden , World Media International and Magazine sales crews, When I stumbled upon all this stuff going on with this man. I can not say that I was at all surprised. When working for him on the Mag crew I seen just how rotten and slimey he could be! Now all of these peoples lives are being negitivley impacted by his shaddy dealings. I personaly do not know why he is not being sued and / or investigated on all of these other alligations. Just goes to show you how our goverment spends its time chasing all the wrong criminals. This man should have ben in jail years ago.

    So now Cuppy’s / Java Jo’z/ Medina Enterprises are going around and deleting all the negitive comments about them. Listen, these people bought a company from a convicted criminal, who they knew was involved in these shady practices. Roy Snowdens “friend” and ex partner is now part of this Cuppy’s but they say they have no affiliation w/ Java Jo’z or Roy Snowden and Kim Snowden. First of all hacking is illegal. Second how stupid do these people think the public are. I find it utterly humorus the comments and bloggs the “employee’s” are writing about this company….Hmmmm…all this brain washing sounds very familiar. Doesn’t it Roy. ANd the people who use to work for them and are blogging the truth they are dogging.

    Only as an adult have I truly realized that there are people out there who do not have an honest bone in there body, some people are so obsessed w/ the love of money and lifestyle that they will trample on anyone to get it. I tink all of these people Roy Snowden, Kim Snowden, Ben Doyle, Medina Enterprises , Cuppy’s , Java Jo’z need to be further investigated.

    Also this man who started all the Buzz about the scam and losing of money’s has dissapeared from the net. Either scared by a letter from the lawyers of these cowards threatning a law suite or quite possibly bought off. This country was founded on free speach and If this Ben Scoble is not a dunce he knows he can say anything he believes to be true in any forum he wants.

    I am quite disgusted by this whole thing, I hope they all get what they deserve.
    I personally feel what ever you put out there comes back to you ten fold!!! And when I was a scared 19 year old in a bus station in the ghetto of St. PAul w/ no mOney or bus ticket i prayed this man would someday get his. I can only hope that all of this bites him in the ass, “law of averages” says you can’t get away with everything forever.!

    PLease read about this…and give me some feed back!!!


  4. Trisha,
    You show a passion, what is it that mkes you so mad, specifically?


  5. To be honest w/ you this all started out as me googling and old boss, Whome I had some bitter feelings towrds. I use to work for Roy Snowden , I was recruted by him when I was 18 to sell magazines door to door. Needless to say it was a horrible experience, one I am still dealing with today. Taxes were never claimed and I have a lean on my credit report.
    He also dropped me at a bus station at 11 at night w/ no money no ticket…I was scared…

    That , though, is neither here nore there. So I just started reading all of these post. I started to follow what was going on and doing some research my self. I guess you could say it is part bitterness part commen sence.
    You can not help but get caught up with all this…It’s an issue on so many different levels.

    I feel now that I know about it I should vocalize my opinion and circulate the information.

    Also, as I stated in my last post the root of all this is Roy Snowden, andHow I believe as knowing as a person that there is WAY more to this story…And i want to know more!

  6. I’m sorry Trisha, but Akismat caught your comments, I have released them.
