Want to learn how to open a coffee shop in Florida? Get insights on starting a thriving coffee shop in The Sunshine State from the experts at Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea. To date, Crimson Cup has supported the opening of three independent coffee shops in florida.
“Florida 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, Florida ranks 32nd among the states in the number of coffee shops per capita with fewer than one coffee shop for every 6,248 Florida residents. That leaves a lot of Floridians without a local coffee shop.”
With one of the lowest personal income tax rates in the USA and the 2nd-lowest tax burden among all states, 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.”
Recently, an existing Crimson Cup customer took over Sips Specialty Coffee in North Tampa. The new owners, Jeremy and Jessica Buxton, also own and operate a growing independent chain of coffee bars in Oklahoma and Texas. They renamed the business Sips Coffee Bar to match their other coffee shops.
They initially learned about Crimson Cup through a family member, who referred them to longtime Crimson Cup customer Jerry Bevel of Cpl. Ray’s Coffee in Texas. The serial entrepreneur has opened four coffee shops in Midland, Odessa and Andrews, Texas. Since then, with Crimson Cup’s support, they have opened several new coffee bars, with more on the way – including potential Florida locations.
“We’ve been thrilled to help Jeremy and Jessica expand their coffee business in Oklahoma, Texas and now, Florida!” Ubert said. “As a coffee roaster and coffee business consultant, we believe our company only succeeds when our customers do.” He invited anyone who is thinking of opening a coffee shop in any state to call Crimson Cup for guidance at 1-888-800-9224.
