Bizdaq’s complete guide to running a cafe

Whether you’re looking to buy or start a cafe we’ve got a range of guides that can help you through the process. We’ve worked with a host of cafe and coffee shop owners to find out what it’s really like to operate a cafe in 2016. You can view all of our cafes for sale and coffee shops for sale, with new businesses becoming available every week.

Our guides include how to navigate regulations, the latest details on revenue, creating customer loyalty and owner success stories.

Buyers should concentrate on what type of setup will work best for their circumstances, rather than making a decision purely on emotion. You should consider whether you would be happy to do most of the work or if you’d like to find a cafe that has an existing manager in place.
