Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in food and beverage but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Robert Fyfe, Co-Owner of Runner's High Coffee Co., located in Bluffton, SC, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Organic Coffee is created for runners and people with an active lifestyle.

Tell us about yourself

Being a runner myself for over 40 years and having my share of aches and pain, also being a business owner in the running industry for 12, I realized we all drink coffee before and after we go out for a run. So I worked with a local coffee roaster and developed an organic anti-inflammatory coffee. My motivation now is the positive feedback we receive from our customers.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Starting off with an idea, developing one product, then watching it grow to 5 unique blends.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Finding reliable suppliers to work with and the right social marketing strategy. Plan on putting in a lot of time and money to get started. Your hard work will pay off.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Start a business you are passionate about, something you love to do. Do your homework before you get started. What business is missing in your area? There should be a need, a product that people want and will continue to buy.

Where can people find you and your business?
