Our Story - Philz Coffee

Our Mission

Our mission at Philz is to Better Days for everyone, every day. Something as simple as a cup of coffee
has the power to transform your everyday into something special, so we better days
one brewed-to-order cup at a time. We approach every interaction with warmth, sincerity, and care,
to raise each other's spirits (while raising a cup).


Our History

After opening a convenience store in the heart of the Mission District in 1978, Phil spent 25 years learning, experimenting, and blending, with the goal of making a really, good cup of coffee. His passion for brewing coffee and building community laid the foundation for the first Philz Coffee shop on January 1, 2003 in the Mission District of San Francisco. What began as a labor of love became a national love affair, with stores across California and Chicago.
