084: Coffee House Culture—Shay Hayes & Heather Wheeler

by | Sep 22, 2021

Coffee house culture has a specific meaning to Shay Hayes, founder and owner of Viridian Coffee. He, and Heather Wheeler, director of marketing and training, live it and teach it to all recruits and employees who put on the Viridian Coffe name tag.

Viridian coffee houses are beginning to dot the south Oklahoma business landscape with five locations in Duncan, Lawton, and Chickasha open 365 days a year. 

In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, Shay and Heather share their values and vision of the magic that can happen in a coffee house where their mission comes alive: to provide culture and community around a great cup of coffee. The magic is more than great coffee; it can be a life-changing experience for those who get to work there.
