Curriculum: This course is designed to help you plan, design and critically think through the process of opening your own cafe.

Business is much more complicated then in past decades. You are now competing against people and large coffee-chain businesses that have sophisticated ways of collecting and analyzing data to compete against you.

We are here to teach you to manage your risk and increase your chances for success by teaching you the science of business versus relying on your feelings and gut instincts.

We understand the challenges that you face in this pandemic economy. Understandably, you may be feeling apprehension with your coffee shop project.

The harsh reality is, just like what is happening on our financial markets today, from this pandemic there will emerge some opportunities. 

Some coffee shops or retail lease locations may suddenly come available.  So our best advice to you is to do some homework now, and not wait until it's too late. 

This course is designed to accelerate your projects to allow you to be more prepared to jump at opportunities as they arise. We will answer all your questions with personalized advice and take you through our most important coffee business course content, for both new startups, purchasing existing businesses and for those owners and operators that want guidance on navigating out of this very difficult time.
