Moka Joe's Case Study

Improved Essays
An interesting fact about the coffee shops here in Jacksonville, North Carolina, is that we have had several privately owned establishments long before the big named Starbucks franchise came into town. Maybe it 's because Jacksonville, North Carolina is such an small town, the residents here are comfortable enjoying their coffee in a cozy, down to earth environment. Although we have since been invaded by two Starbucks coffee shops (within less than a block of each other), we still hold true to the smaller, locally owned café 's. Big franchises just can 't compare to the friendliness of a family owned and operated business. Moka Joe 's is such a place. Located away from the heavy traffic, Moka Joe 's is nestled in a small strip mall. The coffee …show more content…

There are some extraordinarily good coffee shops in this beautiful city. To prevent losing any tourists to exhaustion or coffee deprivation, I will kindly detail some of the best coffee shops in this great town on the river. First of all, you should not be not be frequenting a Starbucks on vacation, since you should check out the local coffee shops instead. However, if Starbucks is a must- a physical need, the best Starbucks with the cleanest facilities and best service is located at 7804 Abercorn Street. It is a huge building, so it is nearly impossible to miss. Next, the best coffee shop I have found in Savannah so far: The Gallery Espresso. This coffee shop is located on Chippewa Square at 234 Bull Street, and Chippewa Square is the famous bench square from Forrest Gump. The coffee shop has wi-fi access for customers and a rich blend of coffees for a decent price. The coffee shop caters mostly to customers that like coffee instead of customers that like a little coffee with their cream. However, if real coffee is suitable, this beautiful establishment is here to please. The atmosphere also tends to select for adult coffee drinkers, rather than college rowdy college students.

    When it comes to the coffee industry so many brands have such a following that having these brands in the shop is a must to actually sell coffee makers. The coffee makers aren’t what make us the money; it’s the coffee that goes with it. Therefore selling the coffee makers is a necessary evil. Our best seller in the shop is Keurig and the K-cups we have branded with Keurig (which is a very rigorous and costly project but well worth it for long term return on investment). Overall are inaugural store sells several products but nowhere near a chain coffee shop like…

    One drawback I see with Dunkin’s cold sizes are that they are all on the larger size and don’t offer as much flexibility. Their price is a plus though because they are less expensive than Starbucks. Dunkin Donuts offers only one coffee blend. It’s a secret recipe that they do not share but their beans are all roasted to 400 Fahrenheit, which they believe is the perfect temperature for releasing the best flavor (Dunkin’ Donuts, 2016). They use this same coffee blend for their hot, cold and frozen drinks.…

Some are 24-hour joints (Leela European Cafe) and others are as healthy as coffee can get (Caffe Sanora). Some appeal to laptop lugging writers and others to young mothers (Under the Umbrella).
