With ever rising coffee drinkers in the world, opening a café could be a good entrepreneurial choice. Opening a café may not be as easy as you thought it would be. You need to keep in mind many elements and make sure you get them right since there’s so much competition out there. So here are some of the elements you need to focus on.
1. Your customer
In every business, customer is king. You need to have a clear understanding on what kind of customer base you are trying to attract. Everything about your café should appeal to your customers, the theme, colour scheme, ambience, food etc. You need to conduct a market research to identify your customers’ needs and wants so that you could cater to them and attract them. Customer satisfaction is everything so make sure you let every customer feel special at your café.

2. The business structure
From funding to taxation to business registration, your business’s structure is important. Most coffee shops will be started as a sole proprietorship and then be converted into limited liability companies. It may grow into a corporation too.
3. Your name and branding
‘Everything is in a name’. The name of your coffee shop will affect the customers’ decision to come in or not. Choose a name that will be welcoming and also unique so that people would talk about your café all the time. The name should give out the entire theme you want to put out there. Use that name on all brown paper bags Sydney and coffee cups of your shop.
4. Your menu
Your menu should be made while keeping in mind the tastes of your customers. It should reflect the ambience you need to create. Foe example, if you selected a retro theme then you could put up some grandma’s special recipes. If you selected a French theme, add some French dishes to the menu.
Location matters a lot when it comes to a coffee shop. The location choice depends on the type of café you’d want to open. If you want to put up a small café for the busy commuters passing by every morning, then a space right in the middle of town would be ideal since that it where people would be around the most. However, if you select to open up a much more spacious café that would encourage people to sit around with friends and family, then a place away from the busy streets would be perfect.
