“New Jersey ranks 11th among the states in the number of coffee shops per capita with fewer than one coffee shop for every 3,902 residents. That leaves a lot of residents without a local coffee shop.” With the 3rd-fastest startup growth rate in the USA, New Jersey is a great place to open a coffee shop.
Since March 2017, The Coffee Potter has served as a sanctuary for people in Long Valley to enjoy terrific coffee, food, and the company of their neighbors. That was the goal of Owners Geralyn and David Hickey when they opened their new coffee house. “Our mission is to unite our local community and connect its people,” said David.
Geralyn gave credit for the coffee shop’s growth to customers, employees and relationships formed over the last four years – including the relationship with Crimson Cup. “The resources Crimson Cup makes available to us, from marketing to equipment maintenance, have been invaluable,” Geralyn said. “Everyone at Crimson Cup understands our business and wants us to succeed,” David added.
“They are available any time of day, any day of the week, if we have a question, a problem, or want to brainstorm an idea.” Crimson Cup continues to deliver coffee, coffee shop supplies, ongoing training and support to The Coffee Potter. David observed that adapting to change, especially over few years, has been key to the shop’s continuing success.
“Crimson Cup has been so willing to support new ideas like our subscription program, making it so much easier for us to try new things,” he said. Asked for advice for other prospective coffee shop owners, the Hickeys advised giving Crimson Cup a serious look. “We honestly don’t think we could have accomplished what we accomplished without them,” Geralyn said.
