The Daily Grind
Small businesses face a myriad of challenges in today's dynamic business landscape. They typically have constrained budgets to allocate funds for various operational expenses along with limited resources, including manpower and infrastructure, which can put them at an initial disadvantage. These difficulties can pose challenges in managing day-to-day operations efficiently as financial limitations often require small businesses to prioritize their expenditures and find cost-effective solutions that provide the best return on investment. The dynamic nature of small businesses emphasizes the need for flexible services and cruciality to adapt quickly to changing demands. The implementation of cost-effective solutions can enable small businesses to ensure every penny spent delivers significant value and that the company can remain competitive, especially when larger companies may have more extensive resources at their disposal.
The Flexibility Factor
A mixture of flexibility and reliability along with long-term cost-effective planning can allow businesses to focus on their main priority: passionately expanding their craft each day while generating a positive brand identity. According to the Guidant, 26% of small business owners reported increasing their staff as their top plans for 2023 as well as 18% hope to expand or remodel their business. Small businesses actively engage with their customers to understand their evolving needs and preferences through regular communication, feedback collection, and market research, which help them adapt their products, services, and marketing strategies accordingly. With a growth mindset of continuous adaptation and learning, small business environments separate themselves from their competitors by having a strong passion for customer service and employee satisfaction. Small business products have become increasingly popular as, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, approximately 1.1 million new small businesses opened from March 2020 to March 2021. Consumers have begun to acknowledge and appreciate the customer-centric approach and detail-oriented process small businesses provide.
Our Start Up Story
At Commonwealth Joe, we understand what it means to take pride in handcrafting our own products and creating a brand image we are proud to sell from. In 2004, Commonwealth Joe was founded with the mission of roasting and serving coffee in an approachable and accessible way. From humble beginnings, we began to expand and pioneer nitro cold brew on tap in offices in 2014. In 2016 we opened up our very own Commonwealth Joe Cafe in Pentagon City, Virginia. We understand the need for reliability and flexibility which is why we pride ourselves in serving all kinds of businesses with our flexible subscription plans, easy scaling options, and ability to adapt to varying office sizes and locations. Providing naturally smooth and creamy cold brew coffee on tap, along with a variety of other beverages, Commonwealth Joe reliably serves offices with trackable keg deliveries, easy maintenance, and responsive customer service so that coffee delivery is consistent and your last worry.
Brewing for the Unexpected
On the flip side, downtime coffee outages can indeed have a significant impact on small businesses' productivity and employee satisfaction. Coffee is a popular beverage in many workplaces, and its availability is often taken for granted. Common office options include flavorless air pots or clunky single-cup machines that require a difficult pod ordering process that can be impersonal or delayed. Without a reliable and accessible quality coffee service available throughout the day, worker productivity and mental alertness can be impacted as employees are unable to energize themselves. But Commonwealth Joe’s full-service approach and proactive maintenance minimizes the risk of outages and ensures a seamless experience. We boast a variety of small business customers who have ordered and returned for more kegs of nitro cold brew because of the hands-on and hands-off service provided by our team. This includes easy ordering, training for facilities teams, quick delivery turnaround, and continuous monitoring for uninterrupted coffee supply.
