The streets of the city are teeming with coffee houses, all kinds of cafes, restaurants. But when you pass by all such establishments, not every one will please. Everyone thinks that something is well thought out in the interior, but here the staff lacks skills. Or you can open your own cafe, while taking into account all the nuances in it.
The first thing to think about when opening a cafe is what will set it apart from everyone else. A pastry cafe is a great business idea. This cafe makes it possible to attract customers of different age categories. In addition, in these cafes you can celebrate birthdays, any children’s holidays. The lack of alcoholic beverages makes it easier to obtain permits for the operation and opening of a cake cafe. For a start-up business, this is quite important, since there is no need to pay extra money, expect extra weeks. When it pays off, it will bring profit, you decide – to create a network or not.
The first thing to start with is to deal with the documents. You are required to register a business entity – LLC or LLP. It is better to choose an unincorporated legal entity, since the requirements for it are much lower than for an LLC. Next, you need to register with social funds, tax authorities. Obtain permission from SES, pass a fire inspection. Plus to everything – the registration of the cash register. All this will take a lot of time.
Before registering a business, it is worth looking for an area for a cafe . We do not consider a purchase, we take premises for rent as an option. As practice shows, many entrepreneurs start a business with a lease without having a large start-up capital to buy a new premises. Of course, the city center would be ideal. But the rental center is not cheap. But this is a 100% profitable place. They will quickly find out about you, which means there will be much more customers. This is not worth saving on.
When looking for the necessary premises, attention should be paid to its condition, since it will need to be equipped in accordance with the norms and standards. If the premises are in good condition, light cosmetic repairs will still be necessary – to create an interior, a cozy atmosphere that corresponds to the style and name of the cafe.
Equipment should be noted separately. It is necessary to count on the fact that the kitchen should have enough space to install refrigerators, stoves, ovens, cutting tables, sinks. At a minimum, a cafe should have two bathrooms, which must always be kept clean. It is necessary to purchase sets of chairs and tables. You can put sofas and armchairs, then the cafe will attract more attention.
It is also necessary to have a coffee machine and a bar counter. Dish sets, beautiful tablecloths, glass, utensils 0 this should be bought with the expectation of possible damage and fight. Next, you need to think over the pricing policy and advertising. Then you can open up.
