We are looking at opening a coffee shop in downtown Kansas city. The bldg we would be in will be renovated for lofts and office spaces. The owners are willing to do the complete build out and abate our rent until they've completed their lofts. (anywhere from 3 to 4 months free) The problem is the space is 3,000 sq ft and $3,000 a month. K.C is in the process of revitalizing our downtown area but as for now it's really only busy during the day. There are two huge office buildings across the street and we were told that a local college is also putting their satellite program across the street with at least 400 students. We plan on serving some food sandwiches, apps, etc and plan on getting our beer and wine license. Everything is great except the price (which dosen't include utilites). I am also wondering if it might be too big. We don't want it to look empty. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
