Owning and operating a coffee shop is a dream that many people share. This course explores the essential knowledge, practices and challenges that each aspiring business owner should know before opening their own coffee shop.
In this one-to-one course, run by our very own Edwin Harrison will walk you through his experiences of setting up several successful coffee shops and the coffee school itself – the good, the bad, and the ugly. He provides a detailed understanding of what is involved in the planning and opening of a retail coffee business. Included in this course are modules on writing a business plan, planning your products and services, developing a marketing plan, identifying challenges and barriers, deciding on a location, building a successful team, understanding costs and margins, budgeting and cash flow forecasting, and much more.
Upon completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of the extensive planning and preparation required to open and sustainably manage a coffee shop. Using this knowledge, you will have the skills and tools to effectively plan for both the opening of your coffee business and for a sustainable business future. After all, is there a better way to learn than from someone who’s actually been there and continues to do it?
