Millennials are the best target market you could have when it comes to coffee.

Customers of all genders

If I would be given a chance to run a coffee business, I would like my target market to reach a wide variety of customers of all genders. A fusion of the old and new generations most probably, with the respective amount of safety and security on our foods and beverages that we would offer. With this goal comes a responsibility of providing a venue that would not only cater to the young ones like other clichéd, trendy coffee shops. There will also be fun, nostalgic activities to enjoy for the oldies, and the youngsters can join them too.
