Phoenix, AZ, June 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- WKW Enterprises partners Eric Whitmoyer, Travis Kenworthy, and Christine Temple-Wolfe, identified several opportunities to acquire and build small, retail businesses in the Phoenix valley and made their first acquisition (Terra Java) with a strong cash offer and a business plan to grow revenue and jobs.
“Small businesses depend on the population growth. According to Forbes, in 2014 Phoenix ranked third on the national list of fastest growing cities” said Partner Whitmoyer. He continued, “that included: job growth rates, growth in gross metro product (the city’s good and services), unemployment rates and median salaries,” he said.
Terra Java, previously known as Mama Java; employs five part-time Baristas, hosts a number of events featuring emerging artists and local performers, and has a strong base of community patrons that have been coming for decades.
“With our collective backgrounds in growing small businesses, we believe that Terra Java is a fantastic opportunity in the Phoenix valley,” said Kenworthy.
WKW Enterprises first priorities include: a little hard labor in deep cleaning, repairing walls and painting with updated colors. The team also invested in new bathroom equipment and merchandising displays to host a new array of prepared and grab and go foods. With a focus on quality food and superior service, the team will deploy a new training plan and redesign operational processes to optimize buying, storage, and distribution of the food program and their award-winning cold brewing products.
The vision for the Land of Nosh and Coffee is a new décor focusing on repurposed furniture with light industrial accents. The shop will be furnished with flat screens, lap tops, and white boards designed for our customers to enjoy relaxing visits or work. The partners believe that natural or raw art and miscellaneous pieces will create a comfortable environment where individuals or business groups throughout the neighborhood can come enjoy craft coffee and pastries during the day; while reading or working in a quiet environment.
In the evenings, group events will be held showcasing emerging artists and performers from all over Arizona. A rich calendar of events already in the works will be publicized through social media and local papers. Several performances a week will be featured during the late afternoon and early evening hours.
Terra Java is open from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday; store hours on Saturday and Sunday are 7:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you need a place to hold a special event, give us a call at (925) 876-7191 and request a date and time.
