Well.... sort of. For my business class, we had to work in groups to create a business plan. We could have done almost any sort of business but the catch was you can't spend more than $20,000.00 which was pretty hard unless you wanted to do something simple. We managed to get everything from decent used equipment, beans, cups with logos, 100 watt pa, counter, etc for slightly less than $9,000.00. We found a great location for the business near campus with a reasonable lease. We'll be open durring morning and afternoon hours, then evening and later hours on weekends and any major events happening in the city. I don't think this would have been as successful without Coffee Forums because I found a lot of great resources on here. I'll post more once we give the presentation.
