Maslow Coffee Company continues to grow and prosper from its opening in March of 2019.
The coffee company, located near the ACU campus police station, is still open for business. Business for Maslow’s dwindled during the summer months due to students leaving school and going back home. However, the numbers in terms of profit and growth during the spring months since its opening and the summer months have been expected.
“We were really realistic in our expectations over the summer and also for school starting back and were pretty much right on what we expected,” Rachel Nocera, manager of Maslow Coffee Company, said.
However, the coffee shop continued on through the summer months supported by a new demographic of customers in the form of young mothers, professors, ACU staff, and elderly members of the surrounding community. With the onset of the fall 2019 semester, this demographic now a mixture, which is what the shop was looking for. With students now back at the university in record numbers, Maslow’s Coffee sees a bright future ahead of itself and is expecting even more success.
“We have big dreams for this place,” Nocera said.
Meredith Lucius, a barista, said the coffee shop is continuing to grow in favorability with its customers.
“It’s only growing, only getting better,” said Ms. Lucius.
Maslow’s continues to receive praise and support from the community. Over the summer when most students were away, the shop underwent a number of changes in order to serve the community better. These changes include introducing new furniture, new menu items, a change in management back in April and a number of other rearrangements. As of now, further developments are focused on improving what the shop currently has to offer its customers.
Over the summer, Maslow’s introduced a new stage for performances and events for anyone who wishes to recite poetry, comedy, sing, or play an instrument. One of these events is an Open Mic Night on Tuesday nights for these performances, which so far is garnering the shop even more attention and success.
