A Flexible Business Concept

How do you want to run your business? What is your management style? Do you want to be "hands on" and involved in the day to day operations? Or do you want to grow the business with good employees so you can take a more "hands off" approach, and spend your time promoting the business in your community? Owning one of our coffee shops puts the choice in your hands.

Our lower entry cost makes it easier to consider adding additional profit centers to increase your business over time. A few synergistic concepts that have been co-branded successfully by our Café owners include a cigar store, bookstore, and florist. Offering additional products and services is especially welcomed in smaller towns, which are excellent markets for our Café concept.
