At Contacts N Coffee, we're a pretty inclusive bunch. Basically, if you're a business professional or owner anywhere in the Vista, Oceanside, San Marcos, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Escondido area, you are welcome to join us.  The more companies represented, the better for all of us, we say.

Along those lines, we place NO category restrictions on competing industries or professions. We believe there are plenty of opportunities to do business in this area, and every business has its own unique strengths and specialties. Likewise, we do not discriminate by business size, although most of our members happen to be sole proprietors or small businesses.

Contacts N Coffee a simple, stress-free way to make connections and build business relationships within our community. Everyone is welcome, and there are no formal membership requirements or annual dues. We meet weekly at a convenient location to schmooze, have fun and share about our businesses with each other so we can all succeed and grow. - Connect over coffee and a breakfast treat - Promote your business - Hear from other local businesses - Receive valuable business tips and business leads - Bring and win great door prizes - Get to work after an hour: 8:00 – 9:30a.m. - Only $5 — more bang for the buck than your regular cafe! 

Please feel free to invite your friends and associates, too! And remember, your  first visit is FREE!!

Maximize Your Business Networking Efforts With Contacts N Coffee


We sure manage to pack a lot into one little hour every Friday morning. That's because we keep things on track and focused—we've all got businesses to run, right? Although our professional networking group has a relaxed vibe, we have found that a little structure goes a long way to keep our program high-performing, effective and relevant.

Here's how a typical meeting unrolls:

7:55–8:15am REGISTRATION
Members and guests arrive, pay, chat and serve themselves coffee

8:15–8:20am ANNOUNCEMENTS
News of business events in the community and from local Chambers of Commerce.

8:20–8:50am BUSINESS PROMOTIONS
Each attendee stands and presents a 30-second "elevator speech" to briefly promote his/her business.

9:00–9:10am SPEAKER PRESENTATION
Every week, a different member presents a 10-minute talk about the business they represent.

9:10–9:25am DOOR PRIZES
Fun drawings for giveaways donated by members. If you have promotional items or other gifts, please bring them—and get even more exposure.

9:30am MEETING OFFICIALLY ENDS
However, some of the best professional networking takes place during the half-hour AFTER the meeting, so feel free to hang out and schmooze for a while.
