What does it mean when 171 million Americans start their day with a cup of coffee? It means that there is a huge market of people to sell coffee to. The economic impact of the coffee industry is over $225 billion in the U.S. alone each year. In fact, the coffee industry makes up 1.6% of the U.S. gross domestic product. So, if you want to start a business, learning how to start a coffee business just might be a great decision.
Buy a Coffee Franchise
However, starting a coffee business can be very expensive. Coffee shop franchises require an initial investment of between $10,000 and $250,000. Total investment can be up to $1.5 million. That doesn’t include royalty fees, rent, licensing, employee tax, insurance, utilizes and more.
Build a Coffee Shop From Scratch
If you decided to start a coffee business from scratch it may cost just as much as a franchise. But you don’t get the benefit of the expertise and brand name of a franchise. On a website that advertises “coffee shops for sale” the lowest asking price was $52,500 on up to $375,000. The good news potentially is that they have an existing customer base built in.
Purchase a Coffee Cart
You can go the route of purchasing a coffee cart. The cart itself is $3,500 and up and the average total cost is just $20,000 which is significantly less than starting a coffee shop. But if you want a permanent location for your cart you need to pay rent for that. And, this doesn’t account for supplies and of course, coffee to sell.
Be a Home-Based Retailer
Or, you could start a home-based coffee business. There are 3 ways to do that. The first is that you could become a retailer for a distributor or grower. The cost to get started is low compared to your other options. But you need to have skill in other areas. Such as developing a brand image along with a website and e-commerce platform. You’ll also need to develop online content such as photos, product descriptions, and written content. Of course, you’ll need to also choose a brand of coffee or coffees to sell. And, you’ll probably want to do local marketing in your community as well.
Next you could do affiliate marketing. To do that well requires a very specific skill set. You must be able to attract traffic to a blog or website so people will click on your affiliate links to make purchases. It does have a low start-up cost, but it takes a significant amount of time to see results. The reason is that you are subject to having your blog or website earn a ranking on Google.
What’s So Special About Your Coffee?
There’s no doubt that some coffees are better than others. They are grown in different regions, at different altitudes, and from different beans. Then there are a variety of roasting processes. Some beans are roasted at the point of harvest. While others are shipped long distances and roasted closer to the point of sale. But it usually comes down to taste preferences. Some like Starbucks, some like Dunkin Donuts, some The Coffee Bean. Some people prefer Columbian to Kona, or Arabica to Robusta. But at the end of the day, it’s still just coffee. And, no matter what type of coffee you choose to sell you’ll have to compete against the competition.
Start a Coffee Business for Less Than $1,000
What if you could start a coffee business from home for less than $1,000 and sell the most unique coffee on the market today? That’s what you can do with Elevacity coffee products when you become an Elepreneur. Elepreneurs are distributors of Elevacity products.
It’s Not Just Coffee
But this isn’t just any coffee. It is a high-quality Columbian Arabica coffee, true. But it’s about what is infused into the coffee that makes it so unique and so amazing. Welcome to the world of nootropics. Nootropics are substances that activate the brain to produce needed hormones and other functions. The hormones activated by this coffee are dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. There is an additional product that goes with the coffee to also help the brain produce oxytocin.
The 4 hormones working together produce more sustained, long-term energy, more focus and more clarity. They also curb cravings. Many people have reported losing a significant amount of weight. Because of the ingredients in the two types of coffee produced by Elevacity, and the effect they have on the brain, people have also reported relief from chronic pain, anxiety, depression, menopausal symptoms and more*.
So, you see, by marketing these products you have a significant edge on the market. How many of the 171 million Americans that drink coffee in the morning would like more energy, focus and clarity? How many might want to lose a few pounds. And what if you could help some people with other health-related issues as well?
