After a month of research, prayer and many financial meetings with our CFO we decided that the coffee shop wasn’t the right situation for our ministry to be in at this point.
Although I’m a bit disappointed, I’m very pleased how our executive team looked at the financial, ministry and community point of view, before we made our decision.
We brought experienced coffee shop operators in from different states to look at our options. Although they were wonderful people it wasn’t quite the right fit for our ministry. So at this point it looks like the coffee shop will close, and possible turn into a Tea House by a different local operator.
Great experience and lessons learned. We’ll see where the path leads us next.
