Owning / Running a cafe
Anyone on here do this, or have done it?
We are looking at buying a local cafe which is up for sale due to the current owners illness. Its in a massive growth corridor and is currently not being run well due to very poor business accumen and a terrible chef. I think with a little bit of tweaking and some good management it can double its takings easily. e.g. it located right next to a swimming pool which is private use for the estate it is on, howerver they dont have it opened up to the pool so if your at the pool, you have to dry off, go inside walk a couple of hundred meters enter the cafe buy the stuff, walk back etc. Simply adding a sliding door facing the pool area would open that whole area up and allow pool side service.
Anyone know of anything i should be looking out for / pit falls?
On the other hand it's massive!
