2. Healthy Choices:

  • What healthy drink and food options will you serve?

  • Time to design a menu!

  • Will you serve homemade foods such as soup or sandwiches?

  • What about seasonal foods?

  • Will you serve hot drinks, cold drinks - seasonal drinks?

  • Will you use local farmers, suppliers or will you buy from all over the country?

3. Dietary requirements:

  • What options will you serve for customers with varying dietary requirements?

  • For example, you might decide to brand/market your cafe as Vegan-only?

  • Here are some of the dietary restrictions you may want to consider:

    • Intolerances/allergies of

      • Dairy

      • Nut

      • Egg

    • Gluten free

    • Vegan

    • Vegetarians

    • Halal

    • Kosha

4. Environmental:

  • Can customers sit in your café, or will it be takeaway only, or both?

  • Will you use recyclable or reusable materials for your cups?

  • How is your cafe sustainable? How?

5. Extended Activity (ages 8+):

  • One of the best ways to see if your cafe works is to create a back story, give the cafe a purpose - why does the cafe exist? Are you answering a gap in the market, i.e. there aren't enough vegan cafes, or perhaps you want to create a child friendly cafe?

  • Think about who your customers are, where do they live, what do they do for a job, what are their hobbies, do they have children? (we call this a demographic)

  • Do you create an experience for your customers when they're there - have you heard about the cafe (or rather restaurant) in London that serves their customers in the dark? Madness, but it's incredibly cool!

  • What about staff, do you employ people?

  • Money, what money do you want/need to spend on food, how much food (based on your menu/sale prices) do you have to sell in order to cover this cost, as well as all the operating costs - such as staff wages, utility bills, rent etc.
