Good morning to all and I'm a first time poster....

Looking to get into this business and have an opportunity to acquire a coffee shop business in the Upper Midwest and wondering if there is assistance any of you can provide relative to what valuation methods are best used to valuate an ongoing coffee shop and if there are metrics that are industry-proven that one can use in looking at the business's, what should COGs be in a healthy business? Is there a revenue per employee range that is used, what % of a coffee shops business should labor represent, food/bakery items, and the like...

Appreciate any help that folks can provide as I'm looking for a "win-win" with the seller.
