Straight talk. Savvy design.

Coffee Cup Media has serviced and promoted small business since 1990 and takes a back seat to no one as the best cheerleader the independent business has ever had. We published Roadside Magazine,, Diner Finder maps and online search, all in service to the promotion of small business. 

We now offer you the opportunity to have your own online voice to communicate with your customers in ways only dreamed about a few years ago, and no one knows this space better than us. We offer web design, social media strategy, and content creation services. 

Our expertise saves you money, time, and frustration, and allows you to do what you do best: Serve your customers.

What We Do

We speak the language of the small enterprise. Your concerns are our concerns. We pride ourselves on providing fair pricing, straight talk, dedicated service. So, rather than blindsiding clients with meaningless corporate techno-speak, we present ideas that bring real value, and that a small business can actually afford.

We believe that the tried and true solutions still work the best, and that common sense trumps the hype often associated with the latest technological advance. 

We see the internet as primarily another avenue available to you to establish a real dialogue between you and your customers, and it's our job to keep that path as clear and easy to navigate as possible. 

Simply put, Coffee Cup Media creates an online presence that you control, gorgeous email templates you can send, and social media that creates actual value.

We also offer website maintenance, which allows you to do your job better without having to become a webmaster as well. You could hire someone for $35,000 per year, hope that they're well-trained already and hope again that they'll stick around. 

Or, you can choose between one of our three maintenance packages, pay a tenth of that amount and get true expert and reliable service. Read more here

Who We Are

Coffee Cup Media has serviced the small restaurant and other enterprises since 1990. In the years since, we've designed menus, brochures, advertising, websites and much more. Besides diners and other small restaurants, we've designed for industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, financial services, insurance agencies, and non-profits. In 1990, we launched a small publication called Roadside Magazine that showcased the world of the diner and the mom & pop enterprise. 

Our travels introduced our audience to the operators of hundreds of small businesses, where we told the stories of their triumphs and failures. We launched our first website back in 1996, when barely 10% of households had an internet connection. We saw the potential, but we also saw the hysteria that pushed too many companies too far too soon. Companies spent big money on their websites, but had no idea of how to use them effectively. 

Company chief Randy Garbin has driven nearly a half-million miles and has eaten in almost 1000 diners (and countless other restaurants, taverns, pubs, and small businesses), shaking hands with their owners and chatting up their customers. He has written at length about the industry and has a finely tuned sense of what works and what is B.S. His design experience began back in the mid-1980s, working for clients of all types.
