Buy the dip

But really, I don't have any practical advice. I'm in a similar boat as you (starting a business, albeit not a coffee shop). Good luck if you decide to go for it!

Some coffee companies will just give you a machine to use, so long as you buy (per week enough of) their coffee.

Find a suitable shop on a main road and have a drive through attached. The Drive through pulls in 350-400% more daily than front of house.
Also aim at early morning openings to get the morning work traffic.
Best choice I ever made was introducing a drive through.

you need to be very good at reading people, especially staff

I found the bulk of my money in the business came from flipping cafes

Take over, increase quality and then profits by 20-30% on average and sell.

I now have a few relationships with developers which makes moving into new spots, showing a proven business model ideal.

tfw I see 10+ cars in drive thrus

People are lazy as shit user, if you are in America, definitely get a drive thru.

Be careful though, I think lie 80% of small businesses fail, you need a plan and it needs to be good.

Just hope starbucks doesn't open next to you. That shit is gross, but normies drink it like its crack or something.

seriously. you don't just start a business out of a flight of fancy.

Since the adv link doesn't work:

"Buy a small heating plate/ stove and a good bean grinder that can make REALLY fine powder.

Grind arabica beans.

Order a turkish cezve over the net, or get a similar sized pot.

put 1 spoon of the coffee powder, one spoon of sugar, a knife tip full of cardamom and one cup of water per desired cup of mokka in the pot, boil the whole thing on the stove. But not fully boiled only close to it

once bubbles exist take a spoon and put the bubbles in the cup.repeat. the third time fully boil it but VERY short, and pour the mokka in the cup.

Best godly coffee in the world.

For cappuccino you need to get a frother and preferable a french press (coffee makers are usually shit)."

Implying anyone actually uses that in the real world.

Even a paypal link would get more tips than that.

All you would need to do is print off the QR code and tape it to the desk. I would donate a dollar if that was the case.

starbucks

What about opening a tea house/shop right next to already established starbucks? Basically steal some of their clients away while attracting new ones for both your shops.
