Enjoy a Sip of History & a Dash of Inspiration with Flo’s Cafe of Anderson

ANDERSON, S.C. – In the heart of Anderson, there’s a mobile coffee cart that’s not just serving up beverages but also brewing up stories and connections. Meet Lauryn Kinsley, the young entrepreneur behind Flo’s Café of Anderson, where every cup of coffee comes with a dash of homage and a spoonful of enthusiasm.

Flo’s Café isn’t just a business; it’s a tribute to her great-great-great-grandmother, who played a pivotal role in her life.

“She was my best friend, my babysitter, my everything,” Lauryn fondly expressed. Paying homage to her beloved ancestor seemed like a natural choice for Lauryn as she embarked on her entrepreneurial journey.

What sets Flo’s Café apart is its mobility. Unlike traditional brick-and-mortar coffee shops, Lauryn’s cart roams across the Upstate, bringing its aromatic delights to weddings, pop-ups, corporate events, and schools. For Lauryn, the joy of being on the move lies in the opportunity to meet new people, forge connections, and explore different atmospheres.

When it comes to the menu, Flo’s Café caters to a diverse range of tastes. From cold brews, iced teas, and energy drinks to hot coffees, there’s something for everyone. But it’s the signature creations like the “Lauryn Special” that steal the show—a delightful concoction of  vanilla, caramel, and white mocha topped with a soft swirl and caramel drizzle, earning it a spot as a fan favorite.

What’s truly remarkable about Flo’s Café is Lauryn’s entrepreneurial spirit. Starting a business at any age is commendable, but Lauryn took the plunge at the tender age of 21. Despite her youth, she approached her venture with determination and vision. Reflecting on her journey, Lauryn admitted to being drawn to entrepreneurship, feeling it was her calling. Even while juggling a job at Starbucks and pursuing a degree in criminal justice, she knew her path lay elsewhere.

“I really just wanted to go for it,” Lauryn said. “I really just wanted to be a business owner. I felt like that was what God was calling me to do.”

In a message to aspiring young entrepreneurs, particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds, Lauryn offers words of encouragement: “Just go for it. The world needs more innovation, and the world needs your idea. Whatever it is, don’t hold back.” Her own success stands as a testament to the power of conviction and hard work.

As Flo’s Café continues to caffeinate and inspire the community, Lauryn remains grateful for the support she’s received. Her dedication to honoring her family legacy while carving out her own path serves as an inspiration to all who encounter her story.
