Perky Owl Coffee Inc.
The Perky Owl is a specialty coffee shop where you can enjoy espresso drinks like latte’s, cappuccino and drip coffee. Stop in for lunch where you can grab different entries like; Panini’s, soups, muffins, danishes, cookies or brownies just to name a few.
What would be your signature product/service or menu item?
Our most popular sandwich would be our Perky Turkey Sandwich, which is made with our homemade cranberry mayo, cucumber, dill and cheese. Aside from sandwiches our Pad Thai made by our chef is a big hit for many customers.
Why did you choose this type of business?
Before opening the Perky Owl I worked in Insurance, which I discovered was not for me. My partner Bill works at the hospital and we both decided we wanted something different to do and we wanted somewhere to go to get a good cup of coffee or espresso drink and somewhere with a bright atmosphere. So we decided to open the Perky Owl and did just that, we are glad to have opened a place where people to come in and feel comfortable and have a place where they feel like they can sit down for awhile and hang out or.
What’s your favorite aspect of being a business owner?
My favorite aspect has to be the amount of fun we have at our business. We had fun hiring our staff and the staffs out front and in the kitchen are amazing. I had never owned a business before so every day I feel like we are learning something new and that’s exciting.
Where do you hope to see your business in the next five years?
Ideally we would like to have more coffee shops open up in Nova Scotia. Our goal is to within five years to have at least one new coffee shop opened.
