Opening a coffee shop
« on: July 19, 2015, 06:57:29 pm »

since i have never been to NH, do people there drink a lot of coffee? Im assuming they drink it all year long since summers are mild, and winter is well, cold. (live in a desert now, its more seasonal)

My wife and I want to open a little family coffee shop, and im wondering if anyone could give me any insight. Any info would help, thanks

Coffee's huge, though I don't drink it (I prefer tea). Dunkin Donuts are everywhere for people's morning - and evening - coffee fixes.

Strictly coffee, or will there be baked goods as well?  And southern or central NH?  Dunkin franchises are quite expensive, and I believe they require you to open a few satellite locations, assuming you can actually buy a franchise.  If you want to set up an independent shop, well the odds are probably against you.  I don't drink coffee myself, but I know most places that sell coffee also do baked goods, ala dunkin and starbucks, as well as a bakery cafe along 111 near Benson Park in Hudson, but that's more a bakery that does coffee than the other way around.  There's also a place called Five Star Espresso that is a drive through coffee stand on 3A in Hudson.  Haven't seen many of those around, and that one is a TINY building with drive throughs on either side.


So the question is, do you want a just coffee place like five star, or a cafe that also has food?
