MEET OM SHRESTHA
I was born and raised in Kathmandu, Nepal. Some of my earliest memories are of watching my father run the family tobacco business. I knew at an early age that I wanted to operate my own company someday as well. As a result, I decided to pursue an opportunity in a field I’d always been passionate about, the coffee industry.
Starting on the “ground floor” as a barista in an established, local, successful coffee shop, I worked my way through every position in the operation over the next decade, slowly learning the intricacies of the business from the various types and flavors of coffee beans from around the world to the strategic and administrative aspects of running the café.
During my tenure with this first café, I found that my passion for outstanding coffee was surpassed only by my passion for the daily interaction with the shop’s patrons, regulars and newcomers alike. I was hooked on coffee and the hospitality business in general, and I knew that someday I had to establish my own friendly, funky, happy coffee shop!
