Our leading business consultant Robert Henry has teamed up with the London School of Coffee to create this 2-day course which provides you with all the information you need to open and run a successful coffee shop.

The How To Open A Coffee Shop course is built on Robert's 15 years of knowledge in the food and beverage industry.

Robert has opened dozens of coffee houses around the world, and brings that experience to his course. He provides impartial, practical advice on the advantages and pitfalls of opening a coffee house or a bar.

Robert has gone on to design coffee houses for many of the delegates who have attended the course, and continues to provide them with ongoing training and consultancy.

We'll take you through the things to look for when finding the right site, how to produce the appropriate menu, sourcing your equipment, your marketing campaign, licencing & councils. This is an essential course for anyone starting out in the industry.

You will learn:

  • How to choose the right location and find a site.
  • Customer profiles and development of your menu, design and brand.
  • Risks, present trends and threats.
  • The right tools for the job.
  • Lead-times, critical paths, design and build.
  • Marketing & branding, how it effects your business and when to do it.
  • Health & safety essentials.
  • Staff training and operational procedures.
  • Barista training, how to use your machine and grinder.
  • How to maintain your equipment.

This course has been designed to give you the perfect mix of practical skills and technical knowledge to set up a cafe that is going to stand out from the mainstream competitors. It is not focused around bottom line profits, it is however focused around understanding techniques that have been used to develop some of the most successful cafes in the UK.
