      Brewing a Business: Starting a Coffee Shop

      coffee shopIf you’re a coffee lover, you will surely agree with this: The world runs on coffee, or rather coffee runs the world. Whichever it is, one truth will stay the same: Coffee is so good. Almost everyone you know is surely a coffee lover — those people who share the same love you have for this concoction’s bold aroma and taste.

      If you want to share your love for coffee, now is the time to brew a business and open your own coffee shop. Don’t know where to start? Here are some handy tips to help you out”

      The Place

      Coffee shops are known to be fancy and cozy. As such, you will need to find a place that is easy to decorate with your chosen theme. Keep the lights warm and elegant (no fluorescent). On top of these, you have to make sure that your storefront is nice, so that people will be attracted to see what your shop has to offer.

      The Offerings

      Surely, there’s going to be coffee — but you need to offer more than one variant. Other than coffees, your menu should include other nice fares, which range from pastries to sandwiches. And just because it’s a coffee shop doesn’t mean that you’re not going to offer other beverages; include sparkling water, fruit juices, and milk shakes in your tab!

      The Logistics

      Your logistics should include machineries and people. You can work as a barista initially, but you will need a hand eventually, so hire reliable and trusty people. Equipment can be quite pricey, but you can always go for coffee equipment hire.

      These are only some of the things to keep in mind if you want to start a coffee shop. Before you start, you also need to think of the following: your branding and your marketing. Happy brewing!
