Finding success through community partnership.
There is something about meeting over coffee that sparks good ideas and great networking.
Micah Elconin asked me if we could help deliver coffee once a month downtown. We would set up tables with coffee, cream, sugar before the convergence of business professionals that would percolate through the door.
One of the folks I met had a unique idea and design to create a new way of stocking local artisans brands of wine at your favorite restaurants. He explained his business, wine distribution to local businesses, (some we were already working with). I explained my business, connecting local restaurants and their clients with people who need delivery. Justin had a thought, “Do you ever deliver alcohol?” I admitted we had in the past but hadn’t had much success.
“Let me get back to you,” he said with a glint in his eye.
Our partnership began a month later, distributing goods for BitCork. It happened thanks to the coffee meetup for connecting us!
