I am working through the idea of setting up a Tea Bar which ultimately I would like to franchise!
One of the first questions that comes to my, and others minds is how can you sustain the bsiness on sales of Tea alone. Obviously we would sell a range of basic snacks to compliment along with Teapots and other items... but in doing the numbers... even if over a 10 hour day we were selling a cup of tea a minute, which would be presumably be a good busy day, at say $3(non US) then that's still only $1800 so would have to assume it may only do half that at best realistically.
So what kind of daily/weekly turnover is common for a Tea Bar in the U.S. (or wherever you are)?
I am thinking I would find a location that enables a street window/bar for serving Takeout Teas as well, especially ice teas in the summer, this always draws good attention from passers by.
I guess it's always a battle trying to find good location which quite important, yet trying not to suffer from paying too high in overheads huh?
Any comments based on the basic numbers of running a Tea Bar would be very interesting
many thanks, look forward to hearing from a few of you.
