Buying a Cafe & Opening a Coffee Shop

If you’ve been dreaming about buying a café or opening a coffee shop, you’re going to learn right here and now how to stop dreaming and start doing. Headed by coffee expert Simon O’Brien, Kickstart is a business that exists for just one reason: helping people just like you to turn their dreams into reality.

Working with Kickstart, you’ll have access to the resources you need to be successful in starting a coffee shop business of your own. If you’re experiencing any fear or doubt about your ability to run a coffee business, that’s normal. But you needn’t worry because the truth is almost anyone can be successful at this.

All that’s required is a passion for good coffee and a genuine desire to serve your customers. As long as you have both of those attributes under your belt, there’s no foreseeable way you could fail. Besides that, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know to make your coffee shop business a success.

Be an entrepreneur, not a franchisee

From the first moment you started looking for a coffee shop for sale, you’ll probably have encountered ads trying to tempt you into buying a franchise. All we can say about that is: don’t do it, you’re better than that.

Franchises are for people who lack confidence in their own ability. But what we’re about is empowering you to confidently run your own independent coffee business. The beautiful thing is, we already know you can be successful at it. So you don’t need the imaginary safety net represented by a franchise.

The important fact to know about franchises is that typically they have little interest in your success. Their primary purpose is to sell you things.  If you happen to make a success of it, then of course they’ll be pleased. If your franchise doesn’t work out, what you’re most likely to hear is “No refunds.”

Entering a franchise usually means high costs, hefty contracts, lengthy obligations, and so much red tape it would make your head spin. And what really matters is that as a franchisee, you’re not really in charge of your own business. Plus franchises are not as safe as the marketing brochures make them look.

Kickstart couldn’t be more different from a franchise. Our mission is to help you get started in your own business, strong, independent and successful. There’s no massive franchise fee to pay, no stifling contracts, and definitely no long term obligations. It’s your business, your brand, and you’re totally in control.

Even though you’ll be independent, it doesn’t mean you’ll be all on your own. We’re here to help, and you’ll be amazed at just how much we can do to help you land squarely on your feet. Everything starts with a coffee shop business plan, and of course we can help you with that too.

Location is really important for Mobile Coffee Shop

In the competitive world of coffee vending, location makes a big difference to your prospects.  Part of the service we provide is to help you with selecting a great location for your new business, so you’ll have the best chance of prospering. In addition, we can also help you negotiate the best deals to obtain the location, and this alone could save you thousands of dollars per year.

Another thing to know is you don’t have to restrict yourself to a single location. A mobile coffee business can be just as lucrative, and sometimes even more so, due to the reduced overheads. That high profitability is one of the reasons why you rarely see a mobile coffee business for sale.  Here again we can help you, not only with finding a mobile café for sale, but also with scouting out the best locations for you to ply your trade.

No matter what kind of coffee business you’re aiming to get into, our proven success formula will work for you. Over the years, we’ve repeated this formula with thousands of people just like you, and there is no question as to its efficacy. What all of these people have in common is they made their start with Kickstart, but of course with subtle differences, because every business is unique. The Kickstart business formula is a proven success story, and you have the chance to be part of it, right now.  All it takes is to reach out to us by calling 1300 997 413, or by sending us an email.

Smooth out the learning curve

Because we’ve run our own successful coffee businesses, and we’ve got years of experience helping thousands of others do the same, we know what works and what doesn’t. This is the advantage you have by starting out with Kickstart by your side.

You’ll have access to knowledge, information, advice, and solid bargaining power.  Success is no stranger to us, and we want to introduce you to it. From teaching you how to brew the perfect cup to helping set up a finance deal, you can rely on Kickstart to guide you through it.

For example, do you know what insurances you’re going to need? Do you know how to identify a bad batch of beans? Do you know all the advantages and disadvantages of a corner location?  We do, and when you decide to work with us, you’ll have access to our vast network of resources to help you overcome all the challenges of starting your own lucrative coffee business.

Start making your dream come true today

The most difficult step in any new business venture is the first one. Make no mistake, this opportunity is not for everyone. It’s for those who truly have a dream of running their own coffee business.

Unless you really have the passion that only a dreamer can possess, you may not have the tenacity it takes to get there, even with all the help in the world.  You have to really want it. You have to be determined that no matter what gets in your way, you will never stop until you’ve achieved everything you set your heart on.

If that’s you, we’d love to have a conversation.

If you’ve been thinking about getting into the lucrative Australian coffee business, Kickstart Coffee is just the solution you need to help kickstart your coffee dreams.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have to buy into a franchise, because it can be an expensive mistake, as many have found out before you.

Kickstart Coffee offers you a better start-up deal than any franchise. Did you know, for example, that many franchise contracts include a “non-compete” clause which restricts you from running a similar business if you ever decide to sell your franchise in the future?

A franchise can also dictate where you buy your supplies from and what you have to stock, even if certain items are not especially popular with customers in your location.

Your coffee business your way with Kickstart

We believe your business should be your business. You should have the freedom and flexibility to run your coffee business your way.

You should be an entrepreneur, not a franchisee. Working with Kickstart gives you access to the resources that can allow you to be entirely successful standing on your own two feet.

Don’t get fooled into thinking you can’t do it on your own. Of course, it’s always best to have the right support and assistance, and that’s where Kickstart Coffee comes into the picture.

We can help you in all kinds of ways, from helping you find a decent coffee shop for sale to helping you develop your coffee shop business plan. In fact, we do so much for our clients, it’s almost like having an agent especially dedicated to helping you achieve the greatest possible amount of success.

The advantages of working with Kickstart Coffee really stack up

It’s clear that there are many advantages to getting help in starting up from Kickstart Coffee compared to choosing a franchise.

  • No hefty franchise fee to pay
  • No restrictive contracts
  • No “non-compete” clauses to worry about
  • You retain full control over your business
