Despite this common trend and warnings of doomsayers that starting a business now is not a wise decision in today’s economy and with so many shops already existing, you will still find many people still trying to make a break. Statistics show that coffee is the second highest commodity being traded in the world, next to oil. So, with those numbers it is bewildering that so many shops close soon after opening.

They have found out how the big franchise companies do it.

These tricks of success are infused in all areas of a business, from marketing, management, designing, training to purchasing equipment and beginning a new venture.

Veteran coffee shop owners know how to minimize their starting capital by buying equipment for less or next to nothing. Then there is the proper way to design a cafe to promote speed and efficiency.
