Drive Your Market with a Mobile Coffee Van

Friday, April 18, 2014

If you're weighing your options for a ideas for a successful business, consider that an estimated 14 billion espresso coffees are consumed each year worldwide. That's enough for every man, woman and child on earth to have more than two espressos annually.

If you decide to embark on a coffee business, you may want to consider buying into a franchise. Buying into a franchise saves you time and money on establishing your branding, which is one of the most expensive and time consuming components to getting a business off the ground. Selecting the best coffee franchise that will have the greatest return is the challenge you are faced with in this regard.

When considering franchise opportunities, you can always explore the unconventional model of a mobile coffee franchise. Mobile coffee franchise opportunities are unique in that they allow you to go to the consumer. A mobile coffee van can access the coffee drinker market in a way traditional coffee shops cannot, by providing the ultimate in convenience.

A mobile coffee van is one of the best ideas for a successful business since the drive thru window. Once you receive municipal permits, you drive to where the people are and your coffee markets itself. And given that 70% of all coffee sold worldwide is arabica, this is where you will want to put your overhead dollars.

Ideas for a successful business are dependent on how much benefit your customer can see from your product. And aside from offering a great pick me up, the number of benefits from drinking coffee are through the roof. Studies show coffee helps burn fat, improve physical performance, increases sex drive and is full of antioxidants to combat cancer and cirrhosis of the liver.

Bringing a wonder drink to your consumers, literally, that they enjoy and is healthy for them has got to be one of the best consumer business models. Business ideas are a dime a dozen. Successful business ideas opportunities, however, do not come along very often.

Coffee Lowers Suicide Rates, Study Finds

Friday, March 14, 2014
mobile espresso vanDrinking coffee may actually make you happier. Studies show that a daily cup (or three) of coffee actually reduces symptoms of depression.

At least one in 10 Americans are severely depressed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Depression is, moreover, a serious issue all over the world. 

The Results Are In; Drinking Coffee Cures Emotional Ails
Coffee boosts happiness levels -- and may even lower suicide rates. "A study last year found that coffee is actually linked to lower risk of depression, although the difference was small. Other research found that it’s linked to a significantly reduced risk of suicide," Forbes reports. The studies, of course, have scientific foundations. Forbes adds, "Researchers say it may be because of the mild boost caffeine gives to neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which both play roles in mood." In 2013, Harvard research revealed that people can reduce suicide risks by up to 45% by drinking two to three cups of coffee per day, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) says.

Consumers, of course, should be mindful of how much coffee they drink -- and when. Too much coffee and/or drinking coffee late in the day may keep people up at night. Keep in mind that limited sleep will have the opposite effect -- or will actually make depression and anxiety symptoms worse.

Mobile Espresso Vans Serve Coffee On-The-Go
The good news for regular coffee drinkers -- and consumers trying to increase their intake to boost their mood -- is that coffee is more widely available than ever before. Mobile espresso vans, mobile coffee vans, and mobile coffee franchises are sweeping the globe. Mobile coffee vans serve coffee on-the-go -- for a quick cup of coffee before work, or for coffee at events, such as festivals and conferences.

Coffee can actually make you happier, so drink up. Several studies show that moderate consumption of coffee can actually be beneficial for your emotional health.

Cafe2U Cromer Does it for Daniel too!

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Terry Hills local and Cerebral Palsy sufferer Daniel Clarke is a 17-year-old young man whose obvious day-to-day challenges haven’t inhibited his lust for life nor caring spirit. A tireless worker for charity, he and his brother have raised over $700,000 to save the orangutans. They have published a book and been given the new Pride of Australia award. Daniel has been recognised by US President Barrack Obama for his conservation efforts and been visited at home by former Prime Minister John Howard as a result of his fundraising efforts for the Australian Orangutan Project to save the Orangutans.

But even the most determined campaigners need a helping hand sometimes – particularly those with a debilitating condition like Daniel's.

Daniel Clarke decided to contact A Current Affair himself requesting help with funds for a new walker and possibly to widen walls in their family home. In the letter received by A Current Affair, Daniel had stated that this kind of letter usually saw him requesting funds for orangutans, but this time round he was actually asking for financial help for himself … a very touching moment.

This week Daniel was given that help courtesy of A Current Affair. What he got was the biggest surprise renovation ever performed by ACA. A three-month renovation jammed into a one-week period was a big ask, but one that was delivered.

An incredible 55 businesses and suppliers chipped in their time, materials and labour to contribute to the cause. Numbered among those was Michael Dolahenty, owner of Cafe2U Cromer-Dee Why, who kindly offered his time and many coffees to the workers during this great event.

"Like all of the suppliers it is something I felt moved to be involved in. It was an incredibly rewarding experience," Mr. Dolahenty said.

Michael turned up at the site of the Clarke family Rescue Renovation every morning to ensure that the team had their early morning coffee fix to get them through the day.

“Daniel’s home is two stories and he hasn’t been able to get his wheelchair up the stairs. It makes home life very difficult for him and the family. This project will enhance their lives. I am very happy I could play my small part and give these great builders and tradesman a coffee boost when they needed it.”
