Jordan Johnson’s Educational Pit Stop: How to Create a Zero Waste Business

From the educational seminars in the mornings to the multiple heated competitions and evening events such as the opening night reception at Prank Bar, Coffee Fest LA offered ample opportunities for attendees to build their skill set, discover new trends, and network. 

First-time Coffee Fest attendees Julie Ford and her daughter Kayla Lendon, co-owners of Caffe Paradiso in Vicksburg, Mississippi, were convinced to attend the event by their partners from the Joe Coffee ordering app. Both women proclaimed that the event had been enormously useful for them, connecting them to resources they hadn’t thought existed and learning invaluable knowledge to implement in their business
