Keys to Starting a Coffee Shop Business in 2018: Today we talk about small business ideas and a coffee shop owners love for coffee. I call it coffee shop love.
Ever thought to yourself, "It sure would be nice to open up a coffee shop?" We know a guy who did that very thing!
Lance Battenfield operates one of the best kept coffee secrets in the country. Now, I'm sure that many people are proud of their local coffee house, but Lance's patrons are beyond a mere sense of pride. Everyone that I have spoken with is utterly shocked about the quality of coffee coming out of Lingleville, Texas. This place has it all. If you are looking for something specific, Lance and his team at the Lingleville Country Store have it!
This week we sat down with the owner of the Lingleville Country Store to pick his brain about how to start a coffee shop, how to start a coffee shop, and how to build a small business.
Lance is born and raised in the small town culture. However, his love for coffee and quirky personality has him transcending the local norms. It is necessary to state that Lance is part of the experience. It's not simply the best coffee these parts have ever seen. It is more a finely tuned balance of delicious high quality coffee and customer service that exceeds the industry standard. Lance is the champion of this cause. He believes in his product and is in a frenzy to make sure that everyone else experiences the joys of drinking his coffee. To drink the coffee @ Lingleville Country Store, in the environment in which Lance has created, is to taste a portion of Lance's heart. You will find yourself warm, grateful, and filled with a childlike excitement.
Lance's Keys to Success:
A Good Initial Deal
A Great Product
A special thanks to Lance for allowing us to sit down and pick his brain on the area of Micro/Small businesses. A short conversation with him, hints at the well rounded personality he possesses. However, coffee and business is certainly his wheelhouse. There is so much more to share from this short encounter, but that is a conversation for a different time. Suffice it to say that if Lance ever were to start a podcast and pontificate on life, business and coffee... I would be a faithful subscriber.
