How much does it cost to start a coffee shop?
Hello,
I am a college student at the University of Phoenix. I am working on my final project which is to convince a committee that building a coffee shop/bakery in our office building will boost employee moral and be profitable at the same time. There are other companies in the office building and it will benefit them as well.

By chance, does any one know how much the initial cost is of building a coffee shop in a pre-existing building? Most of the information I have found is to build a coffee shop from the ground up… and that is not what I am doing. I already have a building; I just need to build the inside.

Thanks for your help!

According to Bellissimo Coffee Infogroup, http://www.espresso101.com/coffee_faq.html you will need the following amounts to start your coffee shop business:

- Coffee Cart: Usual start-up cost is $20,000–$25,000 to open and stock.

- Kiosk: Depending on the size and what menu items are offered, it will usually cost between $50,000–$60,000.

- Coffee Drive-Thru: The cost of opening a drive-thru espresso business operation can vary dramatically, from the the very small units for less than $30,000 to anywhere between $80,000–$180,000 depending on how the shop looks.

- Sit Down: The cost of opening a sit-down coffee shop is comparable to the cost of opening an upscale drive-thru. Start-up costs for most 1200 sq. ft. coffee bars average $150,000 to $300,000.
