Starting A Coffee Business With The Hard Bean Community

by | 0 comments

At Hard Bean, we believe in giving our coffee shop owners the freedom to run their businesses as they see fit. Unlike traditional coffee franchises, once you’re trained and opened, we give you complete independence – no royalties or rules to abide by. However, it can be challenging to navigate the complexities of the industry. That is why we’re building a community of coffee shop owners helping each other to succeed. 

A community of owners helping owners

To help your coffee business thrive, we’ve created a secure and interactive website that’s accessible to all Hard Bean owners, free of charge. This website is a one-stop shop for most of your coffee shop needs, featuring a blog for owners, announcements, details on new vendors, and contact information for all the owners to connect.

In addition, the website provides links to all the owners’ store websites and social media pages, allowing you to see what’s working for other stores. Whether you’re looking for training videos, coffee articles, or general advice, our website has everything you need to run a successful coffee shop. We designed it to be easily updated and kept fresh, so you can always rely on it for the latest information.
