My brother and I opened a coffee bar a few weeks ago, even under the strain of Coronavirus. We spent 18 months on the whole deal, from the construction of the building to the choice of the beans for our brew. Nothing was going to stop my brother and I from opening the coffee bar, not even the coronavirus. When it came time to get ready to open, we purchased several air purifiers to put in the building. We put one air purifier at the front door and another air purifier at each end of the building. We also upgraded to a much better air filter in the HVAC system. We spent about $5,000 to make all of the necessary upgrades and changes, so we could still open as soon as the quarantine was lifted. My brother and I plan to open in the middle of March, but we didn’t open until June 15th, the day the ban was lifted. The grand opening celebration wasn’t as large as we anticipated, because we had to keep things small in order to maintain social distance. Still, our first few weeks of sales have been amazing and we have no doubt it was the right idea to open the coffee bar despite all challenges. Most of our sales are drive-up, but a few people have come indoors to check out the building and meet the staff. Everyone in the community has greeted us with positive vibes and the coffee beans fill the entire street with a sweet aroma.
