Every part of the Organic Coup’s business is built and inspired by our years working at Costco Wholesale. The philosophies learned at Costco have become our foundation at The Coup. We are a business filled with passionate people pushing for social change.
What’s the story behind our name? Truth be told, it started out as a typo when spelling the word “coop” while first hatching out the plan (pun intended) for an entirely new fast food concept. But, this typo actually captured the spirit of our mission and we knew we had our name. A “coup” is a takeover – and that’s our vision: an organic takeover of the fast food industry. Totally disruptive and bold. The Organic Coup represents a new day and a new attitude about fast food – fast food can be good food.
The Coup believes in food that is raised within the Organic USDA standards. These standards do not allow Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), toxic chemicals and pesticides, or the use of antibiotics or added hormones in livestock. We believe in sustainability, not just for the quality of life today, but also for the future.
We believe in “Team Coup” (our employees) and we are investing in them with a livable wage that sets a new standard in fast food.
We are building an army of Coup Nation Ambassadors as the food movement is at its tipping point. Coup Nation Ambassadors – people like you – are changing the status quo by transforming the conventional and unsustainable food system through vision and action. The simple act of buying a certified organic sandwich makes you an agent of change.
We are seeing the future of food come from people with deep courage, powerful voices and unwavering vision who want to make a positive impact. Please join us at The Organic Coup in eating your everyday peaceful protest.

We would like to extend a very sincere “thank you” to all who were, and are, a part of the organic food movement. This movement did not start overnight or in the last decade, but has been growing for over a century.
Good things take a long time to implement and the organic movement is no exception. Revolutionary ideas tend to get abandoned quickly when they don’t get traction right away, but fearless organic leaders had the patience, courage and perseverance to see their vision become a reality. The food revolution would not be where it is today without them.
We created The Organic Coup with the history of this movement in mind and the drive to continue and grow its focus. We believe that with the right education, the finest ingredients and passionate people, our communities will embrace organic and sustainable change.
Taste the Revolution!
