The coffee industry has been transformed during COVID-19. While some shops are finding ways to safely serve customers and achieve revenue at or near pre-COVID levels, others are just beginning to re-open or are weathering major decreases in sales. Meanwhile, permanent shifts in customer behavior and coffee shop operations are changing the landscape for years to come. To shed light on the topic, we’re bringing together industry experts with unique insight and data into how shops are successfully adapting in the short term, what new long term opportunities are already being shaped, and how owners can act now to capitalize when the dust settles on COVID-19.
Speakers: Dan Price, Founder and CEO, Gravity Payments Dane Atkinson, CEO, Odeko Dean Veurink, Director of Marketing, Torani Nick Martin, CEO, Joe Coffee
