Get insider secrets on how to open a coffee shop in Pennsylvania from Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea! The award-winning coffee roaster, which has helped start over 300 independent coffee shops in 30 states, recently published an online coffee shop startup guide for Pennsylvania.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Want to learn how to open a coffee shop in Pennsylvania? Get insider secrets on starting a thriving business in the Keystone State from the coffee shop startup 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.
Now, the company's 7 Steps coffee shop startup consulting team has added to its series of state-level coffee shop startup guides with, "How to Start a Coffee Shop in Pennsylvania."
"Pennsylvania is a land of opportunity for many types of small businesses, and coffee shops are no exception," said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert. "In fact, Pennsylvania ranks 19th among the states in the number of coffee shops per capita, with fewer than one coffee shop for every 5,669 Pennsylvania residents.
"That leaves a lot of Pennsylvania coffee lovers without a local coffee shop."
He noted that the company supports eight independent coffee shops in Pennsylvania cities and towns.
These entrepreneurs learned how to open their shops through Crimson Cup's 7 Steps to Success coffee shop startup program.
The program is based on Ubert's book, Seven Steps to Success: A Common-sense Guide to Succeed to Specialty Coffee, which he wrote initially to help struggling coffee shop customers master 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."

Larry and Kay Byler opened their Dawdy Haus Coffee at 634 Springs Road in Springs, Pennsylvania in 2014.
Translated from Pennsylvania Dutch, Dawdy Haus means "Grandfather's House."
Inspired by their grandparents, the Bylers gave their coffee house the feel of a comfy cottage.
Walnut cabinets and a warm fireplace with a gorgeous copper chimney create a frame for family heirlooms such as the marriage certificate of Kay Byler's grandparents.
In addition to a full menu of espresso-based hot and frozen drinks and tea, Dawdy House features scrumptious meals, luscious baked goods and a mini-market with fudge, canned foods, and other Amish-style goodies.
The coffee, roasted by Crimson Cup, has won rave reviews from locals. The shop maintains stellar ratings on Google, Facebook and other ratings sites.
"I never post reviews, but as a coffee lover this is one of the top coffees I've had," said one Facebook reviewer. "Definitely worth the trip."
The roaster's exceptional craft and specialty coffees have earned top honors at the Good Food Awards, Golden Bean North America, Roast magazine's Roaster of the Year and other competitions.
"As a coffee roaster and coffee business consultant, Crimson Cup believes our company only succeeds when our customers do," Ubert said. "As a result, we support coffee shop owners at every step, from concept through opening day and beyond."
As a one-stop shop for independent coffee shops, Crimson Cup supplies award-winning coffee, the best coffee shop supplies in the business, and ongoing support to help coffee businesses thrive.
About once a week for the next year, the roaster will post a state-level coffee shop startup guides on its website. Next up: a guide on how to start a coffee shop in Illinois.
"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.
