Arthur quickly established himself as the business brains of the outfit, which allowed
Brian to focus on developing a top quality menu. Their first move at expanding was to
hire a team of chickens and waitresses. It wasn't long before the crowds attracted by
the chickens and waitresses overran Brian's original coffee stand. Everything eventually
got sorted out with the police.
In 1984, Brian and Arthur broke ground on the new Arthur's Coffee Shop on the site of the
original coffee stand at the corner of Harbor and La Habra Boulevard. The new Arthur's
quickly established itself as having THE GREATEST breakfast in La Habra, largely as a
result of Brian's insistence on using only top quality fresh ingredients. Unlike many
other restaurants, Arthur's makes much of what they sell in-house, fresh daily.
You're getting real homemade meals, not something from a mix or pre-packaged. You can
taste the difference. That is why Arthur's has developed such a loyal following
over the years, and Brian's dream came true.
