Coffee Shop Franchises for the Desiring Entrepreneur

Mar 23, 2008
Everyone dreams of owning their own business. Sometimes the ideas just fall in your lap while others struggle to come up with something that they like and can make money doing. It's not only difficult to think of something but then you have the expenses that come with if you are considering buying the franchise as well. Then you must consider the fact that the franchise may not always be popular and the franchise may be lost. One great thing about the coffee shop business is the fact that coffee will never be out of style. In fact the future looks very bright for the coffee business around the world. With different flavors being developed regularly, it is easy to see why people would love to see what is coming up next in the coffee world.

There are several different coffee shop franchise businesses to choose from and each one offers something different. They may offer freshly baked pastries and breakfast sandwiches, or deli sandwiches and coffee. You can even serve ice cold fruit smoothies to your number one customers who find that your smoothies hit the spot on a hot summer day. In the winter they can select from all the best flavored hot coffee you offer to help them warm up their day.

It's not easy starting one of the many coffee shop franchises but you can do it with careful planning and help from the franchisor. The initial investment depends on each franchise and they each offer you something different. Being in business for yourself can be very rewarding for you both financially and emotionally.

You will first need to think about what you are looking for in a franchise. For example, do you already have a cozy little shop that would be great to start your business in or do you want one that is on the go? Maybe you want to have a drive through coffee shop where customers don't even get out of their cars to get their coffee because your employees will be bringing it to them. This is not only a wise concept but it is a great way to promote your business because people will soon start talking about the fact that they do not need to get out to get their daily dose of quality coffee in the mornings.

There are other things to consider when you want to open up a coffee shop franchise. You need to think about the location expenses, employee expenses, insurance and more. Your franchise manager will go over all the expenses with you so you will know exactly how much to account for your business.

Like any business, be sure to create a business plan. Be sure to include all your goals, both personally and business-wise, and how you want your business to turn out. What do you want to achieve? It's all up to you. Before making your final decision on a franchise, be sure to speak to someone with each franchise that interests you the most and then you can base your decision on your conversation. Enjoy your new business!
