A simple guide with tips and rules for starting your own café

You don’t need to start with strategic planning for your café, just start by making a simple business plan. This is a document in which you describe the different parts of your company. There are many templates you can use, and it doesn’t have to be too advanced. A business plan is important for getting clarity on what it is you want as well as showing your vision to others. Who are your customers? What do you offer in your café? Your answers to these questions can in turn affect other important questions, for example how your café interiors should look, and what the best location is.

Before you start your own café, there are rules you need to know and permissions you must apply for. For example, if you want to rebuild the premises and change the floor plan, you need to get a building permit from the local authorities. This is also the case if you want to make major changes to the water and sewage pipes, something that’s necessary if you’re going to build a new kitchen for your café. You must also register and install a grease separator to protect the lines. These are just some of the rules you need to know before starting your own café.

The cost of starting your own café

Costs are of course important for all companies. Starting a business is always a gamble, even if you’re able to give yourself the best possible chances of success by doing the right thing from the beginning. For many, the dream dies when they realise they need financing to start their café. To renovate, pay the rent, buy new kitchen appliances and create the perfect interiors, you need a lot of money. In some cases, you can cover your initial costs through a bank loan and savings. If the bank declines the loan, you need to solve your financing needs some other way.

As you can see, there are countless things to think about, from finding a solution to your start your own cafe costs, to finding out which rules and permits you need to know and apply for.

We at Panea are very much aware of all of this. After all, we’ve been helping ambitious people open cafés, restaurants and other types of businesses in the industry for more than 30 years.

We look forward to helping you realise your vision and dream. Get in touch today.
