    add about 20-50k if you are in NYC, Bay Area and some of the most expensive places in US....
    Also you can cut down the cost above, if you can get used items.
    If you are looking to open a coffee house, look into already established who is selling. Unless they are franchised coffee house, they will be much more reasonable.

    When you say "small" for the Drive-Thru shop. How many square feet are you referencing? Thanks

    Hello...I'm new to this site; I just purchased a coffee shop that needs help. It's going to be a sticky process. I hope to gain knowledge through these forums and hopefully share some. Currently, the shop uses Monin syrups. I don't particularly care if the syrup is "gluten-free, or all natural." I just want it to taste good. What is really the difference between the Torani brand and Monin? I've always used Torani myself. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

    I prefer Monin over Torani or Davinci. Not only is the packaging better I find it thicker and tastes more natural. Routin 1883 is very nice as well...

    Here is some advice, buy a little note book. Small enough you can carry everywhere. When you get a good idea and you will get them at random times. Write it down, then when you come to start the business. You can use that book to write up your business plan.
