For sale: popular Cuenca coffee business, Coffeeworks

This popular Cuenca coffee business, Coffeeworks. stayed profitable even during COVID, and offers an investor or entrepreneur the perfect small business with immediate income capabilities.

Located in the high-traffic area of Supermaxi Las Americas — one of Cuenca’s largest food chains, in a small mall that also features SuKasa, Cuenca’s upscale home decor store — this adorable coffee kiosk sits right at the entrance of the mall, with outdoor seating and a drive-through window for quick access to a cup of some of the best coffee in town.

The kiosk offers delicious coffee beverages, made with organic coffee brought directly from local farmers. The menu also includes fruit smoothies and other coffee-free beverages. And, it is one of the only coffee shops in Cuenca that provides early morning service (7 AM) and the appeal of curbside delivery and coffee to go.

The coffee Baristas at Coffeeworks are well trained and provide amazing customer service. They will be happy to stay on to run the business or to train new staff should the new owner desire.

Modeled after top coffee kiosks in the United States, the current owners intended to expand throughout Cuenca, and eventually throughout Ecuador, but an unexpected turn of events is taking them back to the US.
