The name they have built has opened doors for Razdan and company to make headway in nontraditional avenues, such as airports, college campuses, and hospitals. According to Razdan, however, the expansion is not possible without a product with universal appeal.

“When you think about the coffee bean and tea leaf, people want to have their favorite beverage,” says Sanjiv Razdan. “And they have broad consumer appeal, which is why these locations do incredibly well for us.”

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf takes the broad opportunities they have to “brew curiosity”. Meaning, the company has a breadth of products and flavors that take consumers on a journey with every sip.

Understanding that traveling to various countries and corners of the world is a privilege not afforded to most, Sanjiv Razdan takes great pride in bringing that experience through consumers and allowing them to express their satisfaction with the products without being prompted to do so.

“We live in a world today where our consumers are putting Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in the middle of their lives and they're taking pictures and putting hashtags and essentially creating the content,” expresses Razdan.

Whether it’s coffee beans, tea leaves, or mentorship, or The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations and reach, Razdan has a keen interest in progression. As his products generate income for him here in the United States, he uses his GLEAM Network of volunteer mentors to pay it forward and pour back into underserved communities by providing mentorship and leadership development to the restaurant and foodservice industry in those spaces.

Service and growth. That is what Sanjiv Razdan and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are all about.
