Wyoming is a Great Place to Open a Coffee Shop!

Storefronts in WyomingWyoming has everything you need to open a successful coffee shop, from its beautiful natural scenery and vibrant local culture to its favorable tax laws and business-friendly regulations.

With only 14 major coffee chain locations per 100,000 residents in Wyoming, there’s plenty of opportunity to open and run a successful independent coffee shop in your local community.

Wyoming ranks 12th in coffee shops per capita, according to a study by Zoma Sleep. The study counted 4,127 Wyoming residents for every coffee shop in the Cowboy State.

Over 62 percent of Americans drink coffee, averaging three cups per day. So it’s safe to say there’s room for many more coffee shops in Wyoming to serve residents and millions of annual visitors.

According to the National Coffee Association, coffee drinkers are flocking to espresso-based beverages brewed from high-quality 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 Wyoming Cities and Towns Present Big Opportunities

small town storefronts in WyomingMany areas in Wyoming lack major coffee chains, making it attractive to open a coffee shop outside of the largest cities, such as Cheyenne, Casper, and Gillette.

Many cities and towns in Wyoming’s 23 counties lack a gathering place where locals can get together over a cup of coffee.

Does your Wyoming community need an independent coffee shop?

Consider that coffee shops offer more than just a caffeine fix. They serve as community gathering places, providing space for people to socialize, work, and relax.

A coffee shop located in a small town has the potential to create jobs and bring in additional foot traffic to the area, which in turn can help support other local businesses and potentially attract new ones to the community.

Furthermore, your coffee shop could serve as a cultural hub for your community. You could host open mic nights, art exhibitions, or book clubs, providing a space for artistic expression and intellectual discussion.
