7 Brew and Jimmy John’s founder seeking to resolve lawsuit through mediation

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The parties involved in the lawsuit over ownership of 7 Brew Coffee Co. of Fayetteville, the quickly expanding coffee shop chain, are seeking to resolve their differences through mediation, a filing late last month indicates.

As you may remember, 7 Brew found itself in a legal dispute with Jimmy John Liautaud, the billionaire founder of Jimmy John’s sandwich operation.

The legal wrangling began with a lawsuit filed on Jan. 13 in Benton County Circuit Court by Stillwater Brew LLC, a Delaware company of which Liautaud is a principal. Stillwater sued Drink House Holdings LLC, the parent company of 7 Brew Coffee, and Bar 7 Bar LLC, the manager of 7 Brew. Both Drink House and Bar 7 Bar are based in Wyoming.
