Hi,

Looking for knowledgeable advice.

For someone who is not knowledgeable enough to open a coffee/espresso hut, but wants to in the next 5 years, would be wise to start with espresso concession as a hobby and do show event, fairs, etc. to learn more of the ropes of the business?

I understand there is more to it than that, but thats why I am setting a goal to opening my own hut in the next 5 years.

If you agree that it is wise to start with a concession, could you give me advice about converting old trailers, or buy right out, or taking over someone else''s? Where do I start. etc?

Any help any advice, please This is something I want so much even if I need to start small.
Thank You,

Jacory
