One of the most common questions we get from new coffee shop owners is, do you have a checklist for opening a cafe? So we made one!
This simple graphic outlines the steps and phases of building your dream cafe. We hope you’ll consider using Thread Coffee as your new wholesale partner, but we believe that information should not be guarded. Entrepreneurship is one of the most rewarding ways to make a living, and there’s no reason to block access to anyone who wants to start up a cafe or coffee shop. This checklist is not comprehensive or exhaustive, but it offers a glimpse into what’s needed to open a cafe or coffee shop. It’s very common to have the concept, a logo, and a name picked out before ever looking for a physical space to build out your cafe, but any order is possible. Sometimes new cafe owners see the perfect spot to lease or purchase before they ever thought they would open a cafe. Sometimes, we see the need in our own communities for a place to gather and share space. Whatever it is that led you to consider opening a cafe, we’re glad you did, and we hope we can help your dreams become a reality.
