Give us a brief introduction to who you are and to your business (what you do):
My husband and I have lived at the lake since 2014. We have wanted to open a coffee shop here for many years. We own Sailors Tattoo and that is where the Sailors Brew name came from. We enjoy greeting our customers and giving them what they love, Coffee.
Tell us about how your business got started:
We have wanted to open a coffee shop for many years. We own another business in Kings Plaza and we’re hoping to add a coffee shop to this plaza. A building came open and we were able to finally open a coffee shop. The one here in Osage Beach is our second location. We also have a Sailors Brew Coffee in Mexico Mo.
Why do you do what you do?
We serve coffee and specialty drinks because we love coffee ourselves. We want to share to the area what we love!
What are some things that help you stand out as a business?
We are a small local coffee shop offering a large variety of different specialty drinks and flavors. We offer a wide variety of smoothies and frappes and seasonal favorites.
What do you envision for the future of your business?
We hope to continue to grow and to have more locations in Missouri.
What is something that inspires you each day in your work?
Being a small business owner can be challenging but the customers are what keep me going. There is such great support in this area and love seeing our daily locals who come see us and make us apart of their daily routine.
What are some great things about the local area?
The wonderful support from the locals is amazing! Like myself supporting local business is very important and our community does a great job of doing this.
