Nick Bayer has always been in the business of bringing people together, whether it’s as one of Philadelphia Business Journal’s Most Admired CEOs or as a consummate team captain since Little League. So when he created Saxbys in 2005, he never really considered it to be a coffee company — instead, it’s a hospitality company fueled by great coffee. Saxbys has since grown from one corner café to a 30-unit, Philadelphia-based hospitality business with a mission: Make Life Better.
Inspired by his parents hard working ethic and grit and determination, Nick Bayer believes in setting yourself up for success. Nick grew up in Chicago- a strong athlete who loved to play baseball, basketball and football throughout his school years and into college, he dreamed of being an athlete.
Not cut out for the various traditional positions he tried his hand at, being a people-person and thriving off the energy of being around other people, Nick ventured into the role of entrepreneur.
After graduating from Cornell in 2000, Nick found himself in Philadelphia- the center of America’s social community businesses and since then has been working with higher-ed partnerships and entrepreneurial enterprises to build a solid foundation for young ‘business ninjas’ at Saxbys- which is more than just a coffee shop- Saxby’s ‘Makes Life Better’.
