On this episode of The Family Business Voice, Kelly Spiker, second-generation coffee entrepreneur and COO of Woods Coffee, talks to Ramia about generating growth in a hyper-competitive marketplace while working to improve the lives of others in the community.
– Competition isn’t necessarily something to be afraid of; growing a coffee business at the same time as Starbucks’ rapid expansion worked in Woods’ favour.
– By carefully curating their products as well as their space, Woods has built up a loyal customer base that enjoys both the coffee and the community.
– Community is essential to philanthropy as well. Giving back is important, but so is engaging others to reflect on what they too can add.
