Learn how to open a coffee shop in Maine from the coffee shop startup experts at Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea

Want to learn how to open a coffee shop in Maine? Get insights on starting a thriving coffee shop in The Pine Tree State from the experts at Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea. Through its 7 Steps to Success coffee shop startup program, Roast magazine’s 2016 Macro Roaster of the Year has taught over 300 entrepreneurs in 30 states how to open a coffee shop.

In fact, Maine ranks seventh among the states in the number of coffee shops per capita, with fewer than one coffee shop for every 3,522 residents. That leaves a lot of Mainers without a local coffee shop. With the 8th-lowest sales tax rate in the USA, opening a coffee shop in Maine is a great choice for entrepreneurs.

The program is based on Ubert’s book,Seven Steps to Success: A Common-sense Guide to Succeed in Specialty Coffee , which he wrote to help customers develop profitable businesses by mastering all aspects of successful coffee shop operations.

“We help entrepreneurs with little or no coffee experience become owners of thriving coffee shops serving their local communities,” he said.

“From choosing a terrific location and writing a strong coffee shop business plan to buying and laying out equipment, hiring and training staff and more, our team is here to guide you.”

Besides the Maine guide, Crimson Cup recently published guides on How to Start a Coffee Shop in Texas, Ohio, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Virginia, Missouri, Wisconsin, Connecticut, New Jersey, Iowa and Alabama.

The roaster will continue to post a state-level guide each week until all 50 states are covered.

“Although the fundamentals of coffee shop operation remain the same from state to state, the economic opportunities, business formation and licensing requirements vary widely,” Ubert said. “We’re excited to share information and resources to help entrepreneurs expedite their startup journey.”

He invited anyone who is thinking of opening a coffee shop in any state to call Crimson Cup for guidance. “If you run into any roadblocks or just want to discuss your vision with a coffee expert, you can reach our startup team by calling 1-888-800-9224.”
