Your Own Coffee House
How to Open
a Café or Coffee Shop
If you love a fine cup of coffee and spending time with friends, the only thing better than going to your
local coffee shop is owning the local coffee shop.
By owning your own coffee house,
you become part of a rich culture that dates back to the time of
King Solomon. The coffee house has come to symbolize a more cultured side
of humanity. It provides a place where people may gather to discuss politics,
music, poetry, romance or rebellion.
In our coffee culture, coffee
is accepted as social, affluent, and downright hip. It's also a highly profitable
business even for
independent coffee house owners.
In an article titled
"Don't Fear Starbucks: Why the franchise
actually helps mom and pop coffeehouses," Slate journalist
Taylor Clark reported that 90% of coffee house start-ups succeed and described an independent coffee house opened next door
to a Starbucks that was doing "$1 million
a year (in sales) right away." The article concluded:
"Given America's continuing thirst for exorbitantly priced gourmet coffee drinks, there's a lot of
cash out there for the taking."
