So You Want To Open A Coffeeshop…


A dream- that’s how it starts.


Your first move? Write a business plan.


There are lots of templates out there to help, and the work of writing it will focus your dream and help you develop your vision into an actionable plan. Don’t skip it! Your plan will help you with the rest- location, concept, understanding your target market, etc


Then you’ll need to know all about (just for starters) equipment, human resources, menu development, pricing, workflow, and most importantly, coffee!


This can all get pretty overwhelming, but we’ve been there! As independent cafe owners and supply wholesalers, we are equipped to help you along the way. We can provide consultation, training, equipment, coffee, and all your supply needs.


The first question most of us have when starting on a plan is cost. What does it cost to open a cafe? There's no one answer, as so many things depend on your location, fixed costs, labor costs, buildout, and your particular operations.


This is not an exhaustive list, but it's a pretty good start.


You'll need to make decisions along the way about your business, and we're here to help! Call us at 724-742-2326 to talk it through.
