There’s something magical about a coffee shop - the smell of the coffee that hits you the second you walk through the door, the sounds of beans being ground, milk being steamed...the chatter among the customers and banter of the staff. It is a warm, welcoming, comfortable place for people to gather...or get away, to catch up with friends...or a book, to work...or relax. Coffee shops have carved out a special place in our lives, and are a lure for those of us who have the entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to create that magic.

But, it is also a business, with all of the challenges businesses face - financial, ordering, inventory, pricing, marketing, hiring, training, equipment, menu development, space layout and design, and the list goes on and on, and on.

At Dilworth, our mission is to help our partners deliver a delicious cup of coffee, and to let them enjoy it however they see fit. So, our job is to help turn that entrepreneurial spirit into a successful and vibrant reality, and for over thirty years we have helped hundreds of eager, hard-working, passionate entrepreneurs do just that.

From opening your own standalone coffee shop or coffee-oriented business, to adding specialty coffee to an existing business concept or for your guests, employees, and team members, we utilize the same approach to bringing your vision alive and meeting your objectives.
