The Quest to Build a Better Brewski

Joe Brewski's owner Nate Templeton shared a very difficult post on social media last month, 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.

The entire goal of opening up wasn't for sympathy. It was all about the customers, and what they want and need from a coffee business. The crew asked for feedback, so they could factor that into the decision to stay open or close the doors and just keep the catering and wholesale coffee business.

You have to set expectations and goals as a business owner, so Nate set a deadline for the retail shop to stay open or close forever. That was 4 weeks ago.
