GRATITUDE: From the moment we started Sip and Ship, it took courage to believe in the concept and invite a team to to embrace something radically different from a one dimensional mailbox store or coffee shop. From the outside, Sip and Ship can be confusing until you step inside to experience our high level of service. That service has the potential to change the lives of those who work here and those who visit. In the beginning, there was a lot of uncertainty. Would customers find us? Would they use our services? Could we run a day-to-day business? How hard was this going to be? This business required us to have courage, and to keep the faith, make hard decisions, do the work and present our best authentic selves. Our courage includes trusting the process, along with learning and growing from hard work and perceverance; for that we remain eternally grateful.
