We were delighted recently to spend some time with Haley Hiller, Owner, to share the story of Boulder Junction Coffee Company. 

When was Boulder Junction Coffee Company Founded?

Boulder Junction Coffee Company (BJCC) was founded in late 2019, and opened to the public in May of 2020 following renovations and set-up.

Tell us about you and your husband, Dylan, and why you found it important to start a new business in Boulder Junction.

Dylan and I were working for a large company in Savannah, Georgia and decided we were ready for a change. We chose to move back to my hometown of Boulder Junction, and, with the help of my amazing parents, open our own business. Our own love of coffee, coupled with the town’s need for a coffee shop led us to opening Boulder Junction Coffee Company. 

How many staff do you have?

We currently have six people that work at BJCC. A majority of them are family, which is part of what makes our business so special. During the summer months, we expand our staffing to accommodate for our busiest season.

You are both very invested in your community.  Tell us about the development that you're overseeing in Boulder Junction. 

Aside from Dylan and me, my family is also invested in Boulder Junction and its success. My parents, aunt and uncle have purchased the building that the coffee shop is in, which they are planning to completely rebuild. The project will take place in phases, and will see a new, larger coffee shop, along with a few other commercial units and lodge rooms. 

How important is the expansion of high-speed broadband in Boulder Junction? 

With the recent addition of broadband internet to the local area, business and residential customers alike, are seeing faster internet speeds than ever before. The new addition is allowing for those people who work remotely, or need continuous access to reliable internet, to stay here longer, or even permanently. In turn, as business owners, we look forward to both the convenience for our residents and visitors, as well as the potential for increased business during our slower seasons.

What do you love most about having a business in Boulder Junction, and in Vilas County?

The best part about having a business in Boulder Junction is the community. While the area is growing, community members, both new and pre-existing, are like family. Having community members that are friendly, great resources, and supportive is a blessing. It’s also wonderful being a part of a place that is special to so many people, both locals and tourists alike. We’ve heard countless stories of people’s fond memories of the area, so being a positive addition to their new memories is very rewarding.
