Small Business Week With Jacked Up Coffee

What started out as a dream in 2015 and a vintage 1965 Citroën truck (now famously known as the blue monster), founder Jack Provan serves up high quality espresso based beverages from inside the perfect selfie backdrop!

Here’s what Jack had to say about owning and operating a small business in 2020.

If you could only drink one Jacked Up Coffee specialty for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Jack: The Flat White has long been a favourite of mine; think silky smooth milk and deep syrupy espresso. But if you’re in a hurry, the Cortado is shorter on milk, stronger on taste and equally delicious! 


Dare we say it’s been an unprecedented year – what is your biggest takeaway of 2020?

Jack: 2020 has been a real challenge! I’ve always loved our customers and I appreciate them even more for their support and loyalty throughout this crazy year! The positivity and love of the community has kept us strong throughout and we are excited for 2021!


What’s your best piece of advice for other small businesses?

Jack: I would say, don’t be afraid to evolve in business! Most good ideas and positive results come from the failure of previous ideas and mistakes already made.
