Crowdfunding has been a popular gateway for start-ups, in this instance, for coffee shop business owners. So, if you are a coffee lover, Kickstarter is a good avenue to get a hold of must see or must buy Kickstarter project ideas. There are a wide array of interesting coffee shop stories you can choose from, but the following are four of my favourite Kickstarter projects to date.
- Chemung Coffee Tree – What is it about? It is a drive-thru coffee shop with a cool motive—to help improve the local economy. Products sold from their drive thru coffee shop are products that can be found locally. From pastries, fruits to coffee cups. Chemung Coffee Tree believes in helping small local businesses to keep small businesses going.
- Black Chapel Coffee- From the name itself this United Kingdom based coffee saloon project has a unique approach of defining how their coffee shop should impact the public. They use biblical terms such as mentioning black coffee as the gospel. Ultimately, their goal is to bring back the appreciation of just black, nothing more, nothing less. One even mentioned that it is blasphemous to ask syrup from their shop, since the coffee shop only serves premium black coffee.
- Kulani Coffee- Is not just your regular mobile coffee shop. This project intends to help raise awareness of Brazil’s sex trade to both children and women. The idea was conceived when husband and wife, Jason Heilman and Ann-Marie Heilman made a decision to help friends who started a ministry in Brazil by Nic and Rachael Billman.
- Our Coffee Shop- Bringing your culture in a foreign land may be a difficult undertaking, not for Our Coffee Shop owner, Beatrix Czaganv. She lived in New York for 13 years and her idea of having a Hungarian coffee shop came about when she realized that she has never found any authentic Hungarian pastries in her area.
