A coffee shop/cafe just opened in my neighborhood about two months ago. Small, about twenty seats, mostly coffee and pastry with a lethargic attempt to add sandwiches. The entrepreneurial itch has started up again and I'm thinking perhaps I should buy the place. The building houses other businesses so this would be strictly rent with no possibility of ownership of the property and there is no room to expand. What you see is all there will ever be. I live nearby and frequent this place several times a week. I know I can improve the food offerings. I know typical restaurant profit margins. Is a coffee house any different?
