buford coffee

The man who owns America’s smallest town wants to launch a national coffee business there.

Vietnamese businessman Ngyen Dinh Pham bought Buford at auction last year for 900-thousand dollars. Today he announced plans to start selling coffee imported from Vietnam at the town’s lone convenience store. His goal is to eventually distribute the coffee nation-wide.

With a population of one, Buford might seem like an odd place to get a foothold into a major American market. But Business Development Consultant Kip Cheroutes says it just might work.
