Marco and Yesenia Sandoval have enjoyed success since opening Common Grounds Coffeehouse in 2011 within the community of Brownwood, Texas. Their success has not prevented them from continuing to strive to provide great products at affordable prices. When an opportunity to expand their operation by relocating it to a decommissioned city fire station, they knew Common Grounds Coffeehouse would become much more than even they imagined. Marco and Yesenia contacted the SBDC at Tarleton to assist in building a business plan that encapsulated a financial projection depicting their possibilities. “The SBDC assisted in compiling the necessary financial explanation that paved the way for our project to take off” – Marco Sandoval. Common Grounds Coffeehouse will relocate to a newly repurposed facility. Operating out of this facility allows them to serve the community of Brownwood in new ways. Common Grounds Coffeehouse will now be able to roast and grind coffee beans. This new product provides area restaurants and individuals with a great local product otherwise not available to them.
