    It is crucial to the success of your business that you get the location right. On the cafe course I go into great detail about what you must look for and what to avoid.
  • How many coffees/cakes/sandwiches will I sell in a day?
    When you are doing a business plan these are the sort of questions you need answers for. You can either pluck figures out of thin air or boldly walk into a café and ask them. Either option is not going to work. However on my cafe course I happily share information about what we sell in our cafes. You will leave the course well equipped to build a realistic business plan.
