Analysis, action, follow up and improving: these the steps of our coffee shop start up consultant...


A coffee shop start up consulting with Espresso Academy always starts with the evaluation of the location. This is a very important point also because we have to consider that a location can be good or bad depending of the market’s target that we want to reach (a specialty coffee shop, for instance, usually needs a relaxed walking area with windows on the street, a classic cafè/dine is ok at the metro station.)

Your skills and abilities will also guide us to one model rather than another.

Once we have identified the location, but before spending anything on it, we will make an economic evaluation, a first business plan to define costs and feasibility.

Then the project pass into the operational phase, defining menus, equipment, products and coffee and we will begin to work to train the staff. In this phase the role of graphic designers and architects will be also very important, as well as of any companies for the realization of Coffee Shop, figures that we can provide you with our team

At this point we will enter into a third step, that of the actual opening. Important, because the clients will give us just one chance, they will offer us just one visit and we will must be able to win their trust immediately. No problem, we will support you in this fundamental stage!
