OHenry's name comes from the founder, Dr. Henry Bright, a successful orthodontist in Birmingham for 30 years.He decided to share his love of “the bean” with others, tens of thousands of others as it has turned out. In early 1992 Dr. Bright started researching all it would take to open a specialty coffeehouse in Birmingham. He read voraciously, traveled and talked to industry leaders and experts. Early on he decided that offering the best product meant controlling the key product; coffee beans. He went back on the road, did more studying and found people who would teach him how to roast coffee beans. They served their first small black cup of coffee that was $1.50 in November 1993, 17 years later more locations and a much larger roasting business have developed over the years. What hasn’t changed is the legacy Dr. Bright gave so many years ago, it was building only as good as the foundation it was built on.
