Join us for webinar 2 of 5 of the Small Business Webinar Series for Business Leaders in a Post COVID World!
Six months before COVID-19, Ryan and Karen Weckerly opened a coffee roastery. Then March 2020 hit. Join Ryan as he discusses how he and his wife Karen used technology, social media, and Amazon to pivot their business model. What was initially planned as an in-house coffee roaster and tasting experience, with limited retail hours and only for small groups turned quickly into a full-scale retail destination, featuring a full menu of custom drinks and roasted coffees, available seven-days-a-week via contactless curbside pickup at a custom-built outdoor kiosk. Learn more about how Ryan and Karen continued to build their new business with online retail sales via their website and Amazon, all while creating an experience for local patrons through a new, greatly expanded retail storefront and Coffee Bar.
Attendees will learn:
To adapt business models utilizing technology and social media
