How to Create a Coffee Shop Mission Statement
Team Offbeat | 18 Oct

A mission statement is a formal summary of a company’s fundamental purpose. A concise mission statement should outline your organisation’s core values for both the public and its employees. Here are some key components to consider:

  1. Core Values

Analyse what you believe in as a company, translating your key values and principles.

  1. USP

State your unique selling point and how this will benefit both your employees and customers.

  1. Honest

A credible statement is one that is truthful and authentic.

  1. Inspiring

Your statement should inspire both employees and customers and be central to your company’s culture and identity.

  1. Precise

Company objectives should be very clearly and simply outlined.

  1. Vision

Your vision should identify where the organisation aims to be positioned in the future to help guide the company in the right direction. It should describe dreams and aspirations.

  1. Goals

Goals should be feasible, attainable and realistic. An achievable statement is fundamental to engaging your employees, motivating them to work together towards a common goal.

Here are some examples of effective mission statements: 

Offbeat Creative “Define. Design. Deliver. Offbeat Creative is a multi-disciplinary design agency, focused on delivering exceptional customer experiences through visual identity, interior design and digital application.”

Starbucks “to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one cup and one neighbourhood at a time.” 

Coca-Cola “to refresh the world in mind, body and spirit, to ensure moments of optimism and happiness and to create value – making a difference.”

Every organisation should have a clear mission statement to serve as a baseline for effective business planning. It should be part of the company’s identity, used across marketing and promotional material, defining your business’ core principles and values.
