Nate Templeton opened Joe Brewski with one idea in mind: To serve you coffee where you're at. This concept not only means that they will deliver and cater coffee, but also serve you the coffee you actually want.

Not a Bougie Brew

I will be completely honest, when I first heard about Joe Brewski Coffee, I pictured a hipster coffee vibe. You know, the kind of shop that has a complicated menu and then you just ask for plain, because no one is going to explain the different blends to you. After watching the video of Joe's Origin Story, I can say that I was very wrong with my perception of the business.

Build a Better Brewski

Joe Brewski's owner Nate Templeton shared a very difficult post on social media this week, pulling the curtain back, and talking about the challenges of being a small business owner.

Of course, to stay in business, you need to be profitable. We've all seen Shark Tank. If you say that you are not profitable, everyone is out, unless they see potential. Nate knows that if he were to close his storefront in Downtown Evansville, he would be profitable. The wholesale and catering part of Joe Brewski is the money maker. But closing his storefront means missing out on the relationships with customers, and the crew would be affected.
