Opening a coffee shop is easy.
Running a successful coffee shop is hard.
The UK has a vibrant and exciting coffee industry, but to be successful you need to stand out for all the right reasons. It is no longer possible to get away with serving a bad cup of coffee with no thought about an all-round, positive customer experience – your clientele is too savvy now.
You need to know where to begin, what to serve, how to serve it, what to buy and who to sell to. You need to know how to prepare coffee properly, serve a menu that your customers want at a price they are willing to pay in an environment they want to visit.
Future success also depends on being as sustainable and ethical as possible, alongside dealing with the ever-changing retail and shopping habits of UK consumers and the uncertain future of our high street, as we know it.
