Must-Have ‘Prep for Fall’ Checklist for Coffee House Owners

Fall is a great time to be a coffee shop owner – regulars return from summer vacation, kids begin a new school year and popular seasonal blends and drinks give people another reason to stop in shop. There’s a lot going on, both personally and professionally, and a business owner can get overwhelmed quickly.

Plan fall menu and drinks.

Call Stockton Graham & Co. to order seasonal syrups and sauces. Customers expect flavors like Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple to be on your fall menu. Pre-ordering these seasonal items ensures you are prepared to handle the demand. We highly suggest you order AT LEAST one case pumpkin flavored syrup of your brand choice – it will sell. We offer it in DaVinci, Torani and Monin.

What blends and flavored coffees will you offer? As the temperature cools, coffee sales heat up. We have a wide variety of fall blends and flavors to suit any palate. Click here to see a list of our favorite fall coffees!

Hire additional staff as needed. Do they need training? Our Coffee College program will make them the best baristas they can be and, ultimately, save you money.

Begin an aggressive marketing push to local schools.

Don’t neglect frozen drinks. Try out this recipe for a delicious Caramel Apple Dr. Smoothie.

Have your holiday menu planned out by mid September. Gingerbread syrup, take-home coffee, gift baskets, etc.

If this is your first season as a cafe owner, or you’re a veteran looking for some new, spicy ideas, contact one of our customer care associates today at 800 835 5943 for additional advice.

 

Our Favorite Fall Coffee Blends

SGC-Bulk-CoffeeAutumn Harvest Blend

This blend features traits of fruits from the autumn harvest. When brewed, it expresses a light scent of blueberries, and the flavor is reminiscent of dried apricots with chocolate and caramel accents. The velvety body makes for smooth drinking that ends with an aftertaste as crisp as an autumn wind.

Thanksgiving Blend

Our Roastmaster created this blend to unite the major coffee-growing regions of the world. Kenyan, Guatemalan, and Sumatran varietals come together to form a dark-roasted blend that appeals to a wide variety of palates. It’s sure to please everyone at your feast.

Blue Ridge Blend

The Blue Ridge Blend is one of the most popular choices from our North Carolina-themed blends. This blend of South American coffees and our own French roast has a rich fragrance of nuts roasted in the Appalachian tradition with a buttery smooth body to match. It plays across the tongue with acidity as brisk as mountain air and leaves a well rounded aftertaste that’s never bitter or sour.

…also, don’t forget about our selection of fall flavored coffees like Pumpkin Spice, Pumpkin Cheesecake, BOO-berry and more!
