    Utility Bills

    [quote]
    Hello, I am trying to figure out how much on average a coffee shop spends monthly on Electricity, water, internet, phone, for a space in South Florida of about 1200sq ft. We just started to put together our business plan.
    I''ve been to the government websites but could not find any information that gives me an idea of how much I will pay on those utility bills.

    I appreciate any help!

    I''m located in the northeast and have just over 1,000 square feet. My total electric, internet, etc. bills run around $1,500/mo. It really all depends on the equipment you''re using as all use a different number of watts.

    What is the average capital in having a coffee shop? It is necessary to buy power saver equipments to lessen the expenses. Usually, the bill is just fine and exactly what you anticipated, but sometimes the bill is way higher than you were used to. In fact, you could end up with a two hundred dollar bill when you were only anticipating fifty dollars.

    Mark,

    Your large equipment is what it is, cost of doing business. You should buy the best equipment you can afford and save the energy in things like lighting, water heater, high SEER HVAC, and space design. Efficiency in design is way underrated.
