where to open coffee shop
Good morning all. I posted on this a while ago and got some good responses and advice but still stuck and not sure where to turn. I did do the city data search the someone suggested but its so hard online because not sure whats credible and whats not. I deally we are looking for a quaint downtown area that we can own a building and live in part of it and run the business out of the other. Seems as though if its a cool little town,its already saturated with established places. Does anyone out there have any suggestions or personal experience with a small town that may need a coffee shop? have been looking north as we love snow. I will greatly appreciate any advice anyone can give. Merry Christmas to all!

All I can offer is that every decision you make is entirely your responsibility. There's not much you can find here in terms of specifics that will realistically help with what you are envisioning. That's all on you. Whether you pay for professional advice or you invest the time, and research to figure it out yourself. Whatever the case, you'll have to make the final decision. You should get used to that sooner rather than later. Every win will be yours, every loss will be yours. Rather than being in love with the idea of having a coffee shop, love coffee, respect the ingredients, and build a great business. Go do it, and then send us pictures in a couple years when it's all done.John Piquet

Not sure where you will find a small town that can support a coffee shop that doesn't already have a Starbucks!!! Just kidding, I'm sure there are plenty, but then, as you said, the towns that are small and quaint that can support a coffee shop, more often than not, already have a coffee shop. I would suggest that you just focus on larger metropolitan areas that have quaint shopping or business districts that can support more than one coffee shop, and then just do as John suggested...set yourself up to be the go to place for folks who appreciate good coffee and focus on being better than the competition. Because of the larger population, more opportunities will come that allow you to grow your business.
