Top ten tips for opening a coffee shop
So you want to open a coffee shop? That’s great news. Coffee is a fantastic business to be in (we’d have to say that – but it really is true!). According to Allegra, the total coffee shop market is estimated at over 18,000 outlets and £7.2 billion turnover (2014). That’s a 10.7% growth in turnover and 7.8% in outlets in the last year. This growth is expected to continue in the next 5 years, making the coffee business a highly attractive one.
But as the market grows, so too does the competition - and you’ll want to be sure that it’s your business that comes out on top. If you’re up to your eyes in research and business plans, perhaps we can help you out a little, with a few hints and tips gathered from many years of working with a wide variety of coffee businesses. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, but hopefully you’ll find it useful. And if still want to know more, we offer free consultations. Simply contact us to arrange a chat.
