“We help the owner create a solid coffee shop business plan that covers all the bases, from choosing the all-important location to hiring and training staff, setting business hours and much more,” said Greg Ubert, founder and president.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
Dreaming of starting an independent coffee shop? You're not alone. The exploding popularity of the coffee shop has made it one of the most popular business ideas for coffee-loving entrepreneurs.
More than 20 years ago, Greg Ubert began with a similar dream. He founded Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea to roast and deliver the best-quality, freshest coffee on the market. As his roasting business grew, he began consulting with customers on how to make their independent coffee shops grow and thrive. Since then, he has helped set up hundreds of specialty coffee businesses in 25 states.
Ubert detailed his approach to coffee shop profitability in Seven Steps to Success in the Specialty Coffee Industry. Now in its second printing, this common-sense guide is the foundation of Crimson Cup's 7 Steps program, which includes free on-site training for prospective coffee shop owners.
“At Crimson Cup, we're passionate about helping coffee house owners fulfill their dreams, providing them with everything they need to run an efficient and profitable specialty coffee business,” Ubert said. “Our program includes free on-site training, marketing materials, menu ideas and much more – all designed to help reduce costs, increase profits and eliminate potential headaches.”
He noted that the program is equally effective for those interested in starting a new coffee shop or purchasing an existing location.
Unlike a coffee shop franchise, Crimson Cup's 7 Steps program allows business owners to create a unique specialty coffee business that reflects their individual tastes and the needs of their local community.
“We offer everything a coffee shop franchise does – and more – but without the franchise fees and royalties,” Ubert said. “We help the owner create a solid coffee shop business plan that covers all the bases, from choosing the all-important location to hiring and training staff, setting business hours and much more.”
