Hoping to Run Your Own Company? Mobile Coffee Businesses Provide Great Opportunities.

Tuesday, December 10, 2013
According to stats compiled by Statistic Brain, more than half (54%) of all Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee every day. As a result, it should come as little surprise that Business Insider found coffee to be the second most sought after commodity in the entire world, after oil of course. With so many coffee fanatics depending on the drink to help them power through daily tasks, you might want to think about investing in a mobile coffee van business for sale. There is a huge market for coffee and it doesn't seem like that is going to diminish any time soon. This means that getting into the coffee industry could prove to be one of the most successful business ideas.

The reasons why coffee is so popular vary from person to person. While some drink it because they are simply not morning people and need an extra kick to get through their day, others might just enjoy the taste and smell of a nice cup of coffee. Some estimates suggest that 90% of the world's coffee is produced in developing countries with 30% coming from Brazil, but no matter where it comes from, it can be enjoyed by people all over the world. Consequently, there is a large market for coffee franchises. 

Starting a coffee shop business comes with certain challenges, of course, but it can prove to be quite worthwhile. SBDC Net research found that the gross margin for a coffee shop is around 85% and the operating income averages around 2.5% of net sales. This means that investing in a coffee van business for sale could lead to great success down the road, even for potential owners who are worried about the difficulties of starting and running their own business.

In all reality, starting a small business, especially a franchise, is not right for everyone. However, anyone who has an entrepreneurial spirit and wants to be their own boss, or is just looking for a different career and lifestyle change, should consider purchasing a coffee van business for sale. Franchising Australia 2012 found that there are more than 400,000 people directly employed in franchising, but no matter how many people there are, there is always room for another coffee shop. So opening one might be a great way to diversify and explore owning a business.
