Our History

Moxie-Java-DowntownMoxie Java®, your neighborhood coffee house, opened its first café to the residents of Boise, Idaho in 1988, nearly 30 years ago. This original location is in an area called Old Boise, which today still characterizes its 1890’s roots. Located on Boise’s historic Main Street, the original café was created by blending passion and knowledge of coffee with experiences in food service operations. People who experienced the original Moxie Java Café were enamored with its appeal and soon began inquiring as to how they too could partner with us and share the dream. Moxie Java® started franchising its concept and providing quality cMoxie-Java-bistrooffees to others.

Today, the expansion of the Moxie Java® Café and Bistro network continues to strengthen the Moxie Java® brand providing a powerful network, fortifying purchasing power, lowering operating costs and increasing the return on investment of each local Moxie Java® franchisee.

Moxie-Java-meridianThrough our commitment to extraordinary coffee, beverages and food, superior service, dedication and hard work, we will continue to move forward, providing everyone involved with Moxie Java® an opportunity to enhance their professional and financial lives while creating a special place for Moxie Java® guests.

I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.
