Barnabas Brothers Coffee can help you build a coffee shop from the ground up. From finding a location to attracting new customers, we have the business savvy and coffee expertise to help boost your new project.
Here are some frequently asked questions about our process:
What can you do for me?
With our assistance, you can begin your new venture from a position of strength and experience. We’ll show you how to open a coffee shop by consulting on a location, helping with your business plan, showing you how to set up an efficient system, providing POS materials and being your source of award winning products, quality coffee shop supplies, proven, comprehensive training and time-tested coffee shop equipment. You’ll not only have someone to answer your questions, you’ll avoid the most common pitfalls while still remaining independent. All of which makes opening a coffee shop so much easier.
Is Barnabas Brothers Coffee a coffee shop franchise?
No. A coffee shop franchise charges you a fee (often a huge fee) just for the right to purchase their products and equipment. Then they dictate your name, your environment and your attitude. Barnabas Brothers Coffee™ shows you how to open a coffee shop and provides everything a coffee shop franchise does and more—but without the franchise fees, royalties and restrictions on what is, after all, your business. Barnabas Brothers Coffee™ is an affordable and flexible alternative to coffee shop franchises.
Ok, but you want me to use your products and equipment. Bet you’re making a bundle there, huh?
Actually, no. We want to make a fair living, just as you do. But we also believe in mutual success: if you succeed, we succeed. We work with over 1,000 customers nationwide and none of them would continue to work with us if we provided inferior products, overpriced equipment, or ineffective training. We want to be with you for years, not just during the few months when you’re first opening a coffee shop. The best way to do that is to help you prosper. It really is that simple.
I’ve heard that most places give you a couple of hours training on equipment. Isn’t that enough?
Over the years, we’ve discovered some really helpful things about running a coffee house. So we can spend several days on site with you, helping you train and get ready for that all-important opening day. It’s in our best interests to help you succeed. What’s more, we’ll be back periodically with more tips and techniques.
Okay, but what about your products. Are they any good?
You bet. In fact, we think they’re the best in the business. Coffee shop owners, customers, and executive chefs continually choose our blends as there preferred coffees. Barnabas Brothers Coffee consistently takes top honors, against well-known Mega Coffeehouses and local roasters alike. We provide a complete line of products, including sauces, smoothies, syrups, and, of course, coffee and tea blends.
No offense… but why the heck are you doing this?
That’s a fair question. We realize it can sound too good to be true. The thing is, we love small business. We think it builds communities in a way that big, cookie cutter business structures can’t. We even have a word for it. We call it “community.” It stands for how small business can really make a difference at the local level. We recognise that being part of a community can be the most rewarding part of independent business ownership.
Will I have to sign an agreement for one, two, three or more years?
No. We want to stay on top of our business. That means we must keep giving you more and better reasons to stay with us. Our feet are to the fire. And that’s the way we wanted it from the beginning.
What’s the next step?
Give us a call or drop us an email. Then, we’ll chat and see where it leads. That’s it. No high pressure sales. No uncomfortable confrontations.
A partnership with Barnabas Brothers Coffee is more than just a business transaction - it is a friendship!
