Nav Gives $10,000 Small Business Grant To Coffee Roaster & Shop


Today, Nav, a service that gives business owners the fastest, easiest and most trusted path to financing, revealed Philip Klayman, Founder of Three Tree Coffee, as the grand prize winner of the company’s quarterly Small Business Grant.

Three Tree Coffee, a mission-driven coffee shop that opened in Statesboro, Ga., in 2015, had humble beginnings with a husband and wife team roasting coffee beans out in their backyard. Eventually, the operation grew to a bricks-and-mortar establishment with an on-site roasting room and 19 employees. Naturally, as the business grew, so did other elements of the business — inventory, machinery needs, overhead and customer requests — causing Klayman to struggle with cash flow and forcing him to focus on day-to-day tasks endlessly rather than the bigger, strategic plan and needs for the business.
