JOURNEY TO GRIND ON THE GO
In 2010 I found a local coffee shop in Charlotte, North Carolina that I fell in love with. While I was in the coffee shop the atmosphere was incredible and comfortable. I found myself doing school work and working on my first business while indulging in their free 24/7 wifi, great food, and amazing coffee.
As I was in this same coffee shop I saw myself owning my own, with a creative co-working space and conference room. I have a huge vision that I knew would take time to accomplish. I began writing down my ideas and developed a rough plan on how I was going to accomplish this. However, I knew this wouldn't come into fruition for a long time. That said, I started to move in faith.
I went to look at homes and I was inspired by a set-up in a model home and decided I wanted a designated coffee area in my home whenever I purchased one. I started to purchase items that would go in my coffee area before I had a home. I had a coffee table, chairs, and decor. At that point, I knew I was going to opt out of a traditional dining area and set up my coffee station.
I moved into an apartment and set-up my coffee station.
I added a coffee machine and coffee supplies to my seating area to give it a coffee house feel
I purchased a home and added signage to the coffee area. I made sure to purchase accessories as well.
I decided to set out on faith and start Grind On The Go!
I shot my first promo video in my house using the coffee area that I set up in 2017
Grind on The Go secured its first office space!
