A dream started on the late shift at Stick Boy Bread Company quickly turned into one of the High Country’s up and coming start-up ventures. Jeremy Bollman, co-owner of Hatchet Coffee discusses the origin story of the local coffee franchise and how he grew his concept into a reality on this week’s Mind Your Business,  a weekly radio program produced in partnership between the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce and High Country Radio..

In 2017, Hatchet Coffee expanded it’s cafe and roasting operation which allowed for more space and resources to enhance product offerings. These additions, along with continued market awareness, helped Hatchet Coffee exceed their annual revenue by 22% last year. These were just a few of the reasons the local roaster was selected as the 2017 Watauga County Start-Up Business of the Year.
