classic cup coffee leblanc family

Cherie & Ryan LeBlanc

In 2009, Cherie LeBlanc’s daughter came to her and told her she felt like she did not have a purpose. Like any mother, this broke Cherie’s heart, and she decided she needed to do something about her daughter’s pain. After searching unsuccessfully for businesses that hired 16-year-olds, Cherie decided she would create a business whose very purpose was to give kids a chance at a job that would build their self-worth and help prepare them for their lives outside of high school. In 2011, Cherie designed, developed, and began construction on Classic Cup.

Classic Cup Coffee Was Born

What started out as a snowball stand and coffee model idea, grew into a thriving, drive-through only, high-end coffee brew bar &  eatery. In 2013, Cherie decided it was time to take the next step and create a coffee line exclusively for Classic Cup.  She found a well-seasoned, independent roaster to help her develop her very own line of coffee; Classic Cup Coffee was then born and she has not looked back!  Their blends are in the top 1/2% in quality of beans in the world and after high customer demand, they are soon to begin selling Classic Cup Coffee to the public.


Classic Cup serves an array of specialty coffee drinks including their signature beverage, “The Classic Cup”, cold brew coffees, flavored lattes, and Classic Fraps. Their breakfast menu includes house-made boudin hand pies, boudin biscuits, and breakfast croissants as well as various sweet selections baked fresh every day. Their chicken salad, shrimp salad, and hummus are all made from scratch and are all served to order. They do not have fryers, grills, or hood vents. Their menu is crafted of fresh-cut vegetables, house-made sauces, and of course, Steen’s Syrup for boudin biscuit dippin’!

Classic Cup of Maurice will be a partnership with Cherie & Ryan and the owners of Hebert’s Specialty Meats; Quinn & Brooke Hebert and Samuel & Chelsie Hebert. Their new Maurice location will be significantly larger than their Abbeville location.  It will include outside porch seating and a beautiful indoor lobby with grab-and-go bulk items and Classic Cup merch. The construction is expected to begin in early 2022 at 8218 Maurice Avenue. The project is expected to take 8-9 months to complete, will employ over 25 young adults, and will be open 7 days a week.
