Why this business was started
I started Rated Outdoors Coffee in 2017 to learn e-commerce with the intention of creating a brand that gives something back. I have spent in-excess of $25,000 on the branding. Before creating the Shopify store I used the brand for private labeling on Amazon. Last year the brand donated over $100k worth of inventory to onetreeplanted. I changed tacks with the business in 2019 - it's now a fully automated coffee company with coffee orders being fulfilled by dripshipper. Our merchandise is fulfilled by our print on demand partner.
The reason of selling this business
Unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that I don't have the time nor skills available to market the business. I would love to see it live on in some form.
What's involved in running this business
The brand really has the potential to take off if someone had the time and skills to market it properly. I have never run ads or conducted any SEO related services so there is plenty of opportunity for someone with the know-how to grow this into something huge.

How to grow this business
The store ideally needs someone with marketing experience and the time available to grow the brand. I have come to the unfortunate realization that I have neither of these!
