Interested in Owning Your Own Business? Open a Franchise

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

coffee van franchiseAccording to the Australian Immigration Book, it is estimated that there are 1,100 franchise systems in Australia. A franchise can provide a unique economic opportunity for many people searching for successful business ideas: for roughly the same investment as starting an independent small business, a franchisee receives everything from extensive training to a successful business reputation, two factors that make it easier to promote a small business.

But what small business franchise opportunities are proven to be profitable? Depending on your interests, the answer may be a coffee van franchise.

According to Business Insider, the coffee industry is worth an estimated $100 billion U.S. dollars worldwide. After crude oil, coffee is the most sought-after commodity in the entire world. Coffee is socially valued, and also offers a number of potential health benefits: for example, American researchers have found that drinking between one and four cups of coffee a day can drastically reduce the risk of cirrhosis of the liver. But whatever the cause, coffee is a growing industry: according to Datamonitor, for every seven cups of coffee consumed by the average Australian, one is consumed out-of-home, either at a coffee shop or mobile coffee van.

Currently, the International Baccalaureate Information System, or IBIS, reports that there are an estimated 84,867 people employed by the Australian coffee industry. IBIS also reports that there are an estimated 6,613 coffee businesses throughout the country. However, coffee shops are one of the fastest growing industries in the world, with an annual growth of 7%, creating a potentially profitable opportunity for mobile cafe businesses such as coffee van franchises. Mobile coffee vans in particular are popular at public events, but can also attract a high volume of pedestrian traffic and repeat customers. If you are interested in joining a growing industry with a variety of interesting opportunities, research coffee franchise opportunities, such as coffee van franchises, today.

mobile coffee shop franchiseWhy are health nuts putting oil and butter into their coffee? Right now, coffee franchise opportunities are everywhere -- and they're getting increasingly creative (and sometimes even a little bizarre), too! From mixing coffee with oil and butter, combining some of people's favorite beverages, and providing coffee on-the-go, people all over the world are changing what it means to enjoy coffee.

According To Some, Oil, Coffee, and Butter Mix

In Australia alone, the coffee industry is worth more than $5 billion. Now, research shows the coffee and health food industries may be coming together. Fans of CrossFit and the Paleo diet are embracing a new, very unique cup of Joe. What's in it? "Eight ounces of hot drip coffee, one teaspoon of grass-fed unsalted butter, and one teaspoon of MCT-rich coconut oil. Then you froth the combination, which does give it a lovely, velvety texture," The Phoenix New Times explains. "However, by mid-cup, you definitely know that you're drinking butter." The concoction allegedly spikes energy, aids digestion, serves as a meal replacement, and avoids any eventual caffeine crash.

Wait For Your Coffee to Come to You

Are you busy working? No problem! Mobile coffee shop franchises, such as mobile coffee vans, are sweeping across Australia, Europe, and the U.S. These convenient franchises bring your morning cup of coffee straight to you, saving you the trip and/or the need of sacrificing your 15-minute break. Mobile coffee shop franchises brew and sell traditional and specialty coffees, such as lattes and espresso. (Although 70% of coffee is traditional arabica, people all over the globe still drink 14 billion cups of espresso per year.)

Want Wine And Coffee? Now You Can Have Both At The Same Time

Perhaps one of the most unique new coffee franchises offers a mixture of coffee and wine in a single beverage. According to a news release, the coffee wine "features a rich flavor of cabernet grapes, espresso coffee, and a hint of chocolate."

Franchises all over the world are offering consumers new and exciting ways to drink coffee. Some are bringing coffee directly to their customers, combining it with butter and natural oils, or even mixing it with red wine.

best food franchise opportunitiesWhat are some of the best food franchise opportunities? People all over the world are becoming increasingly conscious of their nutrition and health, and -- with a little luck and dedication -- entrepreneurs and startup businesses can easily frame successful business ideas around that. Focus on these lesser known health and/or superfoods, and you can help Americans get healthy while bringing in considerable profits.

Any Kind Of Coffee Franchising

In moderate amounts, coffee can do wonders for your health -- and it is always in high demand, too. Coffee has a wide range of health benefits; drinking coffee has been linked to increased cognitive function, stress reduction, and even long-term health benefits. For example, drinking one to four cups of coffee per day significantly decreases cirrhosis of the liver, according to American researchers.

The good news is there are more coffee franchise opportunities than ever before. Highlight the health benefits of coffee, and look into the various new business and franchising opportunities available -- such as mobile coffee franchises. The global coffee industry is worth $100 billion, making it relatively simple to sell coffee -- whether you emphasize the health benefits or no.

Native American Staples

Traditional Native American foods, such as "cattail broad leaf shoots, chokecherries, beaked hazelnuts, lamb's-quarters, plains prickly pear, prairie turnips, stinging nettles, wild plums, raspberries and rose hips" contain large quantities of health-boosting vitamins and minerals. New, unique franchises focus on branding these foods to Native American tribes and making the most of "nutritional nostalgia," NPR reveals.

Healthy and Delicious Kids' Snacks and Foods

Adults are not the only wants who are trying to get healthy. A growing number of parents are reconsidering store-bought, processed foods in favor of more nutritional options. One California mother is helping to bridge this gap, releasing a line of cold treats with servings of vegetables and all-natural ingredients (no preservatives or chemicals!) only. Create food franchises offering healthy options for children, and you are likely to go far.

In Australia alone, at least 400,000 people work in franchising. Why not you? Do your research about some of these lesser known health foods, take advantage of the best food franchise opportunities, and do your utmost to bring these superfoods to as many consumers as possible.
