Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert is writing a series of columns about running a coffee shop for Coffee Talk magazine.
The series continues in April with, “Grass Roots Marketing and the Cost of Shoe Leather.”
“As a coffee house owner, you are running a community-based business, where the majority of your customers live or work within a few miles of your shop,” Greg writes. “To prosper, you need to become involved in your community. That’s why grass roots marketing is so important – and why shoe leather is one of the best investments you can make in marketing your coffee house.”
