Nevada is a Terrific State to Open a Coffee Shop!

Virginia City, Nevada in snowWith its bustling tourism industry, growing population and supportive business environment, Nevada might be the ideal setting for your independent coffee shop.

Since there are only 18 major coffee chain locations per 100,000 residents, there’s plenty of opportunity for more independent coffee shops. Nevada ranks 25th in overall coffee shops per capita, according to a study by Zoma Sleep. The study counted 6,201 Nevada residents for every coffee shop in The Silver State. That leaves a lot of Nevadans without a nearby coffee shop!

About 62 percent of Americans drink coffee, averaging three cups per day. So it’s safe to say there’s room for more coffee shops to serve both Nevada residents and millions visitors from other states and countries.

And, according to the National Coffee Association, coffee drinkers are flocking to espresso-based beverages brewed from high-quality coffee beans. Sales of cappuccinos, lattes, and mochas have increased by 50 percent since 2015, driven partly by strong popularity with 25 to 39-year-olds.

Small Nevada Cities and Towns Present Big Opportunities

Small businesses in small Nevada townNevada’s often-overlooked small towns offer untapped markets for introducing specialty coffee experiences. In areas like these, an independent coffee shop can become a community hub, providing a cozy retreat for locals and a novel stop for travelers exploring the state’s diverse landscapes.

With many parts of the Silver State underserved by major coffee chains, you might consider starting a coffee shop outside the largest cities of Henderson, Las Vegas, and Reno.

Many cities and towns in Nevada’s 16 counties lack a gathering place where locals can get together over a cup of coffee.

An independent coffee shop would be an incredible addition to any Nevada community! Read on to learn more about how to start a coffee shop in your town.
