Here’s an idea: Meet new friends by starting a Meetup group. You can create a group of your own for a nominal annual fee. Just go to and begin. If you manage a coffee shop a weekly or monthly meet up at your coffee shop is a great way to bring in new customers.

There are often whole groups that are unused with plenty of members ready to join. The reason is because without a group manager a group doesn’t have anyone to coordinate events.

  1. Thank you for this great idea Chris. I am going to make all my customers aware of this marketing tip. This is the momento to start the independent coffee house movement in Arizona.

  2. Thanks Chris,
    This is a great way to introduce a new indie business, so look for “intatto coffee roasters and cafe ” we will be hosting all who want to meet up for an evening of fun and friendly competition!!

    Cheers, Leslie
