Want to learn how to open a coffee shop in New York? Get insights on starting a thriving coffee shop in The Empire State from the experts at Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea. To date, Crimson Cup has supported the opening of six independent coffee shops in New York.
“New York is a land of opportunity for many types of small businesses, and coffee shops are no exception,” said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert. “In fact, New York ranks 17th among the states in the number of coffee shops per capita, with fewer than one coffee shop for every 4,976 New York residents. That leaves a lot of New Yorkers without a local coffee shop.”
Combining the lack of coffee shops with the fact that New York ranks 3rd-best in the USA for access to venture capital, it’s a great place to open a coffee shop. “As a coffee roaster and coffee business consultant, Crimson Cup believes our company only succeeds when our customers do,” Ubert said. “As a result, we support coffee shop owners at every step, from concept through opening day and beyond.”
Just ask Managing Directors Stewart and Tammy Thompson of St. Stephen’s Café in Brocton which opened in November 2018. They knew from the start that Crimson Cup would be their coffee supplier. “A friend of mine started with Crimson Cup,” Tammy said. “I loved her coffee and made her establishment like my second office.”
“When I knew we would be opening a coffee shop, I knew exactly what coffee I wanted,” she added. “What we received was so much more. The help on design, purchases and guidance along the way has helped us become successful.”
“It’s entirely different trying to formulate the words on your own versus having help with terminology and presentation. Crimson Cup helped us knock that out of the park!”
7 Steps Sales Leader Scott Fullerton, the first contact for all new coffee shop owners, said “If you’ve ever dreamed about opening a coffee house, I’d love to help you get started.”
