"The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (sometimes shortened to simply "The Coffee Bean" or "Coffee Bean") is an American coffee chain, owned and operated by International Coffee & Tea, LLC, which has its corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California. The first outlet opened in September 1963. The chain has over 830 locations in 23 countries. Within the United States, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has locations in San Francisco, Phoenix, Las Vegas,Honolulu, Texas, Alabama, Miami, Detroit, New York City, and Washington, D.C.. The majority of locations are in Southern California, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Ventura. Many locations outside of California are franchises, such as Hawaii. Singapore entrepreneurs Sunny and Victor Sassoon have opened locations throughout Southeast Asia and many other parts of the world since buyIng the company in 1998"

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf was founded by Mona and Herbert Hyman in September 1963. They opened the first store in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood. This original location still exists and operates today. The firm is affectionately known as The Bean among long-time customers that include many Hollywood celebrities, and was touted as a success model for the coffee and tea business in its early days.

Singapore entrepreneurs and brothers, Sunny and Victor Sassoon and their long time friend and business associate, Severin Wunderman purchased the company and took it global in 1998. In 1996, the Sassoons bought the franchise rights for Asia and in two years, opened 29 outlets in Singapore and Malaysia - almost as many as the Hymans had opened in the US up until then. Two years later they bought the entire Los Angeles-based firm.
