We had the good fortune of connecting with Josh McCorkle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Josh, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Starting a business from scratch is always something that interested me. Going to college for creative writing, I have long been interested in the creative process. Taking a blank sheet of paper, or in this case an old building, and turning it into something beautiful. is extremely rewarding.
What should our readers know about your business?
First and foremost, I wanted to create something this amazing city could enjoy. I didn’t want to create a brand that was only about the money. Building a unique coffee and donut shop allows myself and my employees to get to know this community on a personal level. That being said, from an operations standpoint, this business was a lot more challenging than anticipated. Making scratch donuts to order, in a drive-thru setting, took a ton of work. But after many months of fine tuning the operations, we got it dialed.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’ve been fortunate to be in an industry where all of the business owners I’ve encountered have been tremendous in lending advice and their time.
