1. has anyone used CafeMakers service?
2. Does anyone know if the American Barista and Coffee Business school is high quality?
3. where is the best place to find the market research needed for a business plan?
4. how do you go about finding a location; meaning, do you figure out how much square footage you need, put that amount and the equivelent rent amount in the business plan and then look for locations according to that?
5. What types of funding has anyone used? Is the SBA the best bet?

Any other info for a opening a shop would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Go here: http://www.score.org/ and find someone in your area to help you with a business plan. It's free and a wonderful resource. That will give the best idea of how to procede from there. Business plan first, then the other stuff :D

Thanks

Thanks everyone! I hadn't checked back in a while because I thought no one was going to answer me! Especially since there was a post by Aliya that had almost all the same questions, so I did get a lot of answers.

Thanks for the drive thru info, though I'm not starting a drive thru, EIMimports.

I am aware of SCORE, and will definitely contact them. Thanks JavaQueen!

I'll keep the forums updated with my progress.
