After you read this guide, you will be able to create an optimal coffee shop design as if you are assembling a jigsaw puzzle. So let us get down to business.
For starters, your first job is to determine the store feature and menu of your coffee shop. If you are interested in baking then you will need to purchase an oven, exhaust hood, sheet pan rack, a mixer and a prep table. If you want your coffee shop to be a conference room for corporate house meetings and seminars then you have to allocate an extra space of 200 ft. You have to provide separate space for your day to days clients. You will need additional area for fixing the necessary equipments and features, which I have discussed above. Thus at the end of the day you will require at least 1000 to 1200 square feet of space.
If you are going for a state of the art coffee shop design then I must assure you will require a house service, which includes your cash register, brewing and espresso equipments, pastry case and blenders. Along with it, a back of the house area will be required for storage, prep dishwashing and official work along with a restroom and a seating area. A 1000 sq ft is enough for about 15 to 20 customers, but if you want to seat close to 50 customers, a bigger area, about 16000 sq will be more suitable.
Now you have to locate the equipment and fixtures in the appropriate location so that your staffs can accomplish the duties bestowed on them perfectly. You will need efficient people who will be operating the cash register a dishwasher and waiters to brew and serve coffee pastries and desserts to your esteemed clients. Your menu should be simple and affordable, which should deliciously include espresso based beverages like tea, hot chocolate, soda, along with mouth watering food items like sandwiches, wraps , salads hot dogs burgers , snacks etc.
A coffee shop menu doesn’t necessarily have to be elaborate. It’s a place where people come to unwind and just take a grab in between office hours or meet up with their buddies on the way home. Therefore, the menu should include easy snacks that are tasty and go well with frappes or teas. The coffee shop design should be also soothing, nothing over the top.
If you follow these guidelines then you can surely expect a heavy footfall, which will get your cash register ringing!
