Sarrissa Elder has always wanted to own a coffee shop and in 2017 her dream became a reality at the Amarillo Community Market. S&J Coffee House offers hot & cold coffee and other drinks, and in 2020 they began offering sandwiches and daily hot specials! Sarrissa’s advice for other business owners is to be positive, adaptable, and relentless. They appreciated the help of the SBDC, “It is like having your own private support staff that were vested in helping us be successful yet take no credit” The SBDC provided projections, training, research, and referrals. Client is living a Lifelong Dream.
