Opening a shop? 

Let ESI guide you in that process. Our detailed guide will answer a lot of questions.

ESI can help you shape that plan and make a difference in your long-term success.

So, you have decided to open a coffee shop.  That is the first of many steps that lead to making your dream a reality and sharing your passion for coffee with others.  Remember, it is a business and like any other business, you need a sound plan to succeed!  Successful coffee shops are the result of careful research, planning, choice of location, training, excellent customer service and high quality products.

If you are near one of our facilities we offer a Coffee Shop Training Program where you'll learn about equipment use and operations that will ensure you and your staff can run a working coffee bar before you open for business.  You'll also get education on coffee history, espresso production, hot and cold drink assembly and machine maintenance.  You'll receive our Barista Training Guide (with customized instructions for your operation, if needed) as a permanent reference for current and future employees.  If you need further training later, our staff is always glad to assist you as best we can.  We've helped hundreds of individuals get started in the coffee business.  Let us help you by calling or clicking today for more information.
