Canyons Coffee is the premier mobile espresso bar and specialty coffee catering service in Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah. Not only do we make great coffee, but we create an experience for our guests that leaves them feeling honored, welcomed, and served. That’s the difference between serving coffee and serving people.
About Canyons Coffee
Salt Lake City has a lot to offer — beautiful mountain views, outdoor sports, and a whole lot more. But when we moved here, we felt something was missing. We didn’t realize how much we had been spoiled by the booming coffee scene in our hometown of Kansas City. It wasn’t just the excellent coffee that we missed, but the atmosphere and community that those coffee shops nurtured.
Over the years, we’ve been the owners of multiple businesses. From fashion to web design and home decor, we always knew we would pursue the entrepreneurial lifestyle. But many of our businesses were temporary. We’d get them off the ground and sell them to new owners (or close them), but all that time, we knew we wanted to find something more permanent — a business venture that allowed us to serve people.
The idea of Canyons Coffee came to us in 2020 during the covid-19 pandemic. Coffee and community are both vital parts of our lives. We thought, what if we could bring midwestern coffee culture to Salt Lake City and cultivate authentic relationships at the same time?
We combined Maddy’s entrepreneurial spirit with Steven’s experience in digital marketing to create a business plan we couldn’t stop thinking about. We would launch as a coffee cart company with the intention of one day opening a coffee shop. In 2022 we served coffee at our first event – the Rock Climbing World Cup in Salt Lake City, and in 2023 plans to open a coffee shop began.
Maddy started working in coffee and never looked back.

Why Coffee Carts?
We don’t make just any coffee. Complete with hand-pulled espresso, latte art, and your milk of choice — your guests get a luxury experience. We wanted to fully embrace the high-quality nature of our beans and a food truck just wasn’t the right fit.
A mobile coffee cart is great because it doesn’t require parking space and it isn’t very loud. It won’t disrupt the integrity of your event at all. In fact, we’ll probably just blend into the background.
A smile makes a difference — and your guests will get to connect directly with us when they order. It’s a personable and professional experience they’ll want to repeat.
