COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Want to learn how to open a coffee shop in Maine? Get tips on starting a profitable business in The Pine Tree State from coffee shop startup experts at Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea.

"If you're thinking of opening a coffee shop in Maine or any other state, call 1-888-800-9224 to reach our 7 Steps consulting team. We're excited to share information and resources to help entrepreneurs like you." - Greg Ubert, Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea

Through its 7 Steps to Success consulting program, Roast magazine's 2016 Macro Roaster of the Year has taught over 300 entrepreneurs across the country how to open their own independent coffee shops.

In 2022, Crimson Cup published a series of startup guides to help entrepreneurs in each state achieve their dreams of opening their own coffee shops.

For 2023, the company's 7 Steps coffee shop startup consulting team has updated its "How to Start a Coffee Shop in maine" guide with even more tips and resources.

"Maine offers fertile ground for many types of small businesses, and coffee shops are no exception," said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert. "The Pine Tree State ranks seventh in the number of coffee shops per capita, with fewer than one coffee shop for every 3,522 residents. That leaves a lot of Mainers without a local coffee shop!"

Crimson Cup's 7 Steps program is based on Ubert's book, Seven Steps to Success: A Common-sense Guide to Succeed in Specialty Coffee, which he wrote to help coffee shop owners 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 calculating coffee shop startup costs, buying and laying out equipment, hiring and training staff and more, our team is here to guide you."

"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."

"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.

"If you run into any roadblocks or just want to discuss your vision with a coffee expert, you can reach our startup team by calling 1-888-800-9224."
