I would really like some no nonsense comments on starting a Kiosk in a local Mall. There are four major department stores (Sears, Dillards, Maceys, and J.C. Penney), several smaller name-brand retail outlets, and a food court. However there is not a coffee outlet. There have been three attempts at a coffee related business in the past 15 years there but none were espresso based coffees, just brewed coffee sitting in a carafe, and none lasted more than a year.. The mall has good traffic and my location would be at the center hub of the mall. I plan to offer espresso based coffees along with a few other things. My space rent will run around 1.5k a month average. I plan to invest around 70K. I have calculated a profit margin of around 65%. I would like to know of similar operations, quantity of sales, difficulties, and any suggestions at all. Thanks, if all goes well I would like to open in March.
