About a Career as a Coffee House Owner

If you love a fine cup of coffee and spending time with friends, the only thing better than going to your local coffee shop is owning your local coffee shop. Coffee is culturally accepted as social, affluent, and downright hip.

By owning your own coffee house, you become part of a rich culture that dates back to the time of King Solomon. The coffee house has come to symbolize a more cultured side of humanity, providing a place where people may gather to discuss politics, music, poetry, romance, or rebellion.

Starting an independent coffee house business can also be highly profitable when it’s done right.

In an article titled “Don’t Fear Starbucks,” journalist Taylor Clark reported that 90% of coffee house start-ups succeed, including an independent coffee house that opened next door to a Starbucks and was soon doing $1 million a year in sales.
