Newbie here: I have some experience working seasonally in a bakery (now closed down) and learned that store front bakery is difficult to survive. Yet, I still would like to work for myself and slowly exit from my current professional job. I enjoy baking and have been thinking about a coffee shop with in house baked pastries. I am curious why most coffee shops outsources their pastries? I am starting to learn about coffee business and found this forum. I apologize in advance for not asking the correct questions. My thinking is that good coffee would be the reason to bring customers and hoping that they will appreciate the fresh pastries. Of course, light lunch offerings as well. Unless I am incorrect to think that coffee drinkers are not picky with pastries.. Also, would drive thru window or a pick up window/pick up spot not a good idea?
