First, a sample mug came in probably yesterday. I went to Lucy's house to water plants and SURPRISE!!!
What do you think-- should we order more of these mugs?? We ARE a faith-based business and the end goal is to create something big and wonderful that helps people to get free while at the same time bringing you the BEST POSSIBLE COFFEE & BREAD (and actually for a really great value)... Not really getting a great price on the mugs tho... But I DO dig our slogan and I think it conveys what we're about... (Sidenote-- if anybody is interested in how we plan to help our community get better go ahead and pm me, it's nothing secret, it's just kind of long and specific, but I know that I'm not qualified to bring it here or get it started, I'm just trusting God to help us make it happen... It's good though. Really, really good).
The other cool thing that happened-- (and only just a moment ago)... We got our first customer call asking where we are located-- and as we are using the kitchen space within the Methodist Church, we are a for profit business (for now), and they are a non-profit entity, so in the interest of not jeopardizing their non-profit status, we are unable to use their address.
It takes quite a while to set up a non-profit, and from what I understand, you would need to establish an LLC first anyway-- the question for us is who will be on the board and how will we make sure that what we want this business to sustain (besides itself), it will sustain?
I'm doing some research today on that. I've got a partner (I think) who is probably good at everything I'm not good at, but she happens to be out of town this week. I don't even know when she's coming back. All I know is that I'm probably the best this town has for coffee, and that's only because God led me to Bernie Kayes @bkayes and Jay Caragay @onocoffee & now I've got a bread baking anointing and I think I'm the only baker in town. Suh-weet!!! Life is crazy. God is good.
I'm just super excited about everything.
