Our Coffee Cart was Stolen :(

We still haven’t recovered our trailer. What we did find is the love of our community. We got numerous messages, videos, prayers and thoughts from folks literally all over the country. Thank you all for showing us that we were not alone in this difficult time. I built this bar, sourced plumbing, electrical and learned lots from this process. I’ll take those lessons with me when we inevitably rebuild. But I really loved this bar and the equipment. I still remember making a $5k payment in cash for the espresso machine while thinking “what am I doing?”, “Will people think this is dumb?” The community has shown their support and y’all have given Kim and I strength.

Thank you.

For now, we are not taking on new catered events since we are still working with insurance, sourcing equipment and will have to rebuild.

What’s Next: 
We are borrowing some awesome equipment from friends and will have a new bar built in the near future. This will help us fulfill our current events this year. .

We are searching for a location that our NEWEST coffee trailer can live. We want to create a unique shaded outdoor coffee environment for Fort Worth to enjoy. With our trailer, we will be able to sell ‘by the cup’ and raise the funds to rebuild the catering cart. We can still take on public events with our coffee trailer but are wrapping up final permits with the city.

Thank you all for your continued support! There’s no doubt we will come out stronger from this. We are so excited to serve you coffee vibes, anywhere.

The time has come to look past at the last year and see how far we’ve come as a company. 2018 was our best year yet. We loved serving coffee to the Dallas / Fort Worth area. If you are ever looking for coffee service in your wedding, conference, or private event please feel free to reach out!

Two Things I've Learned in One Year of Coffee

     Well, its been about a year since i've started Quarry Coffee Bar. Im 1 year into what had been in my head for over three years. I've learned a lot about what not to do like build a bar that can fit through a household door, not cheating out on casters, knowing how to price yourself accurately and finally, what its like to be an actual entrepreneur (not a want-repreneur).

Entrepreneurship is a Lonely Job

     If you decide to start your own business, be prepared to be alone both physically and mentally. If your story is anywhere close to mine, you'll find yourself asking your dogs about important business decisions at home on your couch. To combat this loneliness I head over to my local coffeeshop. The hustle and bustle of others working gives me energy. 

     Im definitely an extroverted person. I work better with teams and love the back and fourth of decision making with people that are just as passionate as I. This is not the season for that however. Without having someone to bounce ideas off of, someone to gauge whether your ideas are good or bad, you are left with only yourself for the assurance that your business idea will actually work. This is why I suggest having a mentor or at least someone in your life whose also trying to grow their business. For me, thats my best bud Cameron Cooper over at Outland Weddings. Sure, he's not in the coffee world. But his business is in the same stage as mine. We are both one man shows with now employees living off of whatever gigs we get each month. 

Paralyzed by Opportunity

     If you are an entrepreneur, you can think of all the different ways that your business can grow. In the morning, you may think that buying a food truck would be a smashing hit. During lunch time, you think about creating another coffee bar. Finally, once bed time hits you think about how you're not successful enough and have to capture all the hours of tomorrow. 

     Its better to not think about all the different things you can do with your business and just focus on one. For me, I've decided to focus on my social media reach. Its a great way to push my brand and the cost of posting content is little to nothing. Sure, I could have designed a layout for a new truck, or come up with a shopping list of parts I need for "mobile cart 2.0" but these things cost money (I don't have much at the moment) and have no guarantee of making money. 

Focus on what you do have. If you have time, go out and shoot photos to push out your brand. If you have knowledge, write a blog post to increase SEO performance on your website. If you have capital, ask your customers what they desire from you. Use what you have and focus on one thing to grow your business. Don't be paralyzed by opportunity.


I hope this small post finds you and helps you out in your coffee business. I do offer consulting for other mobile carts. Feel free to reach out. 


Welcome to Quarry Coffee Bar's First Blog Post

  In November of 2016, my wife and I set out to create a business that would combine our passion of coffee and community. We both have full time jobs but felt this tug into entrepreneurship and building something we can be proud of. 

  We have done a hand full of events and have met amazing people. Some people love coffee and everything it stands for and others not so much. But the beauty of our business is that we can share our passion to everyone in our community. We hope to see you at an event and share our passion for coffee with you!
