A former finance trader named Devon McConville has successfully launched a mobile coffee business and managed to grow its sales by over 550% in Phoenix. McConville first found success by finding a consistent location for her coffee truck, called First Place Coffee. She then used social media to build a strong customer following, particularly on Instagram. By posting photos of customers with their coffees and using tags, McConville was able to organically grow her business as customers shared the photos with their followers. In addition to social media, First Place Coffee also focuses on providing a quality product and offering a unique menu that changes with the seasons. McConville sources her coffee beans from a roastery in Austin and creates seasonal menu items to create a place where “quality meets creativity.” The community aspect also plays a key role in the success of First Place Coffee. Customers are drawn to the truck not just for the coffee, but also for the sense of community fostered by McConville and her team. By providing a space for people to gather and mingle over a cup of coffee, First Place Coffee has become a beloved fixture in the Phoenix drink scene.
