Going all in! Toledo, OH

Hello all!

My brother and I have recently committed ourselves to starting our very own coffee roasting business in good ole Toledo, OH - our hometown. In November of 2018 we placed our order for a San Franciscan SF-6 and are still anticipating its arrival (ship date keeps moving...a story for another thread. Currently 3/8/2019), so there is plenty more to come on that! In the mean time, we are having a ton of fun going through the motions of starting a business and all of the research that goes into it - holy crap we are learning a lot. I am hoping to use this forum to build on that knowledge and also to open myself up to any questions that others may have while going through the same process.

As a bit of background, I currently work full time as an electrical engineer doing controls and my brother works full time as an avionics tech for the Air Force. So roasting will still be a fun business for us to run on the side, while not needing to be reliant on its income. We dream of having a brick and mortar location in the future but for now we will be taking advantage of farmer's markets, online sales, and other creative avenues.

Looking forward to exploring this forum!
