At Least 18 New Independent Coffee Shops Plan to Open in 2022 through Crimson Cup’s 7 Steps to Success Coffee Shop Startup Program
Award-winning coffee roaster Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea has signed agreements with 18 business owners to open a coffee shop in 13 states. Most plan to open in 2022. “We’re excited to help 18 new coffee businesses get off to a prosperous start,” said Founder and President Greg Ubert. The new owners will learn how to open and run profitable coffee businesses through Crimson Cup’s 7 Steps to Success coffee shop startup program.
Based on Ubert’s Book Seven Steps to Success: a Common-Sense Guide to Succeed in Specialty Coffee, the program has helped hundreds of independent coffee shops in 30 states become thriving businesses. A 7 Steps coffee shop startup consultant will guide each new owner through every step – from scouting a profitable location and writing a coffee shop business plan to planning a menu, choosing equipment, hiring staff and providing comprehensive training. “We set up new business owners to reach their goals,” Ubert said. “Whether it’s to have a successful business, to delight your customers, or to support your local community, our 7 Steps team can help you get there. We’ve already helped open hundreds of other coffee shops around the country.”
After a new coffee shop opens, the 7 Steps team supports them through grand opening celebrations and beyond to ensure ongoing success. Crimson Cup customer Tracy Heitmeyer opened 5 Bean Coffee in Reynoldsburg, Ohio in 2008. “Without Crimson Cup’s help, I would never have been able to set up my shop as efficiently,” she said. “Frankly, I am not sure if I would have stayed in business.” Ubert said he continues to see strong opportunity for new coffee shop owners. “There are so many cities and towns that lack a good coffee shop,” he said. “We’re here to help anyone who wants to get started in specialty coffee.” 7 Steps Sales Leader Scott Fullerton is the first contact for all new coffee shop owners. “If you’ve ever dreamed about opening a coffee house, I’d love to help you get started,” Fullerton said. “We’ve helped hundreds of entrepreneurs take the leap from dreaming about a coffee shop to opening their doors. Chances are, we can help you!”
