“Opening a coffee shop is daunting and an exciting project and to get straight forward independent no-nonsense advice is not easy to find. Nonetheless, Andrew & Claire tell it as it is and this is a must read book for every new and budding coffee shop entrepreneur or existing owner. Even if you do not own a coffee shop read it for great business advice.”

As someone who helps entrepreneurial businesses, I found this book essential reading for any coffee shop owner, or even someone who is considering opening a coffee shop, but who is serious about making it succeed. Andrew & Claire Bowen really know their stuff and their book gets right into the heart of the coffee shop business with superb, practical  advice, usable templates, and effective marketing solutions.

This  covered a multitude of important aspects for anyone looking to open their first outlet. I like how you have categorised topics and how it is almost a step by step guide and a do’s and don’t approach which is very easy to follow. It definitely gives a newbie lots to consider allowing them to make a calculated decision.

“There are so many coffee shops around you’d think you were spoilt for choice. But not when so many get it wrong. This book will help anyone thinking of opening up a coffee shop to get the essential foundations and building blocks in place for success. In fact, you could apply the principles and ideas presented here to any new business.”

This is a fantastic book for anyone opening a cafe or an owner who is struggling and needs to refocus on the business operations.

Often owners (me included) focus on working in the cafe and forget they are running a small business. This book will help you to know the financial numbers you need to be profitable, where you should be located and crucially some great marketing strategies to get and keep customers coming back.

Inge Dowden, Author - The Happy Worker

What an amazing book! This is not one of those books that tells you "What" to do but it gives you the step by step of "How" to do it. ....Why go through the pain of trial and error, when EVERYTHING you need is covered in this book.
I would recommend it to anyone who is either thinking of opening a coffee shop or is already running one. This book will take you from ordinary to exceptional!

Dylis Guyan, International Sales and Marketing Expert

This book is an essential tool for anyone thinking of opening a coffee shop or already in the business. As there is much to think about and do in the coffee shop business, this book along with the accompanying website, has numerous helpful resources to help and guide along the way. To re-read or dip into when required imparts even more detail. Highly recommended!

Pauline, 2nd May 2016

This excellent book is a must for not only aspiring coffee shop owners but also a practical blue print for existing coffee shop owners who want to take their business to the next level.
It is clearly set out and is full of nuggets offered by the writers who really do know their stuff.

I also agree with the first review that there is much to commend to other specialist independent retailers. A really good read.
