When you decide to get into the café business, you are probably aware you have some work to do before you can expect it to be the success you dream of, more so because there’s a great deal of competition to beat. Yes, it’s not exciting to hear that it might take a while for your investments to pay off, but there is a way to speed things up: make things classy!
In this time classy may not be on everyone’s list but even if you don’t want to go classy all the way, you can still use it to spice the interior, and make it more inviting. As it happens, the interior isn’t the only aspect that could get the upgrade, there’s the uniform too, and the introduction of the black apron can be just the ingredient for success.
A subtle, yet stylish and functional detail, the apron can liven up the uniform, giving it a more professional look, and the best part of it is it’s suitable with any shirt, skirt, or pair of pants, as well as it’s available for decoration in the form of logo, either with embroidery or badges. Talk about affordable branding!
The black apron aside, if you want to get the sense of luxury, you can always seek the help of chandeliers. There are plenty of options, differing in styles, materials and sizes, so even with a modern chandelier you can achieve the playful yet warm atmosphere that brings all the customers – that is if you’re not up for the crystals kind of luxury.
Nowadays, you have to remember people are looking for the places they would love to show off on the social networks, and this is an element that would do the trick. The flooring and walls also come to light here, and you would accomplish much with the simple addition of stylish tiles with unique patterns (they are great for shoe photos!), and use fabrics as wall art. You’d be surprised of the result!
Sure, people stop by at your place for the coffee, but it’s not only about how tasty it is; you have to think of the bigger picture, because what’s important is also how you sell it. Are your cups (both porcelain and disposable) any remarkable, or the usual cups most cafés have?
This is where you shouldn’t back away from investing a few more bucks on, knowing fun design wins customers over. As a final touch, the napkins and menu could do with some makeover themselves.
