NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/28/06 08:25 PM

hello everyone
I am new in town, and I am looking foward in placing a coffee shop. Do you know of any rental space in town that would be ideal for the business. Also do you know of an estimate that rent goes here in the island.
Another question what are the chances of this business on this island
thanks for you help

Good luck - I mean that sincerly. Tabu is a great place and could be tough competition.

Not to be rude ,as a businessman I find this post most amusing. you come here to open a place with no research ,or a clue to the islands demographics.it's people??? you ask about rent??? ,or where to open??.you need a good plan first..then some brains, then some money then a lot of hard work and skills and good idea's ..success is not luck it is proper planning and a vision.Do not mean to be harsh only giving you the facts. the island is a great place to live the dream... but a tough place to make a good living....wish you luck but you will need more then luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/28/06 10:46 PM

I never could figure out why are there coffee shops. Make your own and set back and relax.Need coffee in the afternoon, the work place has it. Need coffee at night, well your home so makr it and relax.

Check out the questions in the poll. Lets see hummmmmm, what question should I vote for? I haven't a clue!! confused

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/28/06 11:11 PM

travel queen ,like I said was trying to help,if they are a real person ????.. I was a little rough ,but if they are for real they do not have a clue on island life or the business world here.one needs to do homework on a start up venture to be a sucess in todays times.must be proactive not reactive and going broke is not a good thing.

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/28/06 11:14 PM

I think one of the questions should have been does anyone drink coffee. smile smile

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/28/06 11:36 PM

Coffee when it's 90+ in the shade? Wow! A couple of homebrewed cups of Caye Coffee in the AM, before it's sizzling, is enough for me when down there. I rarely drink coffee here later in the day, unless it's really cold. Deacon+, Capt. Jeff, others, we'll be back--trip #3--June 22 to July 1. Would love to meet some of you! If it's after 9 AM, time for a couple of Belikins!

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/29/06 11:05 AM

I am struggling with this coffee thing... Lemme sort it out in my mind... beliken or coffee... beliken or coffee... beliken or coffee...

The winner by a long shot is... ice cold beliken! eek

I think we could use a Beliken little gremlin here.

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/29/06 02:17 PM

Can't say more right now but there's already another quality coffee shop opening up in a strategic location at the north end of town. I'll announce when it's official (coffee drinkers will be very happy.)

Does living a dream have to be based in logic and reality?

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/29/06 03:55 PM

Instead of a coffee shop, how about opening a Belikin shop. You could probably start it up anywhere and probably more people will come.

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/29/06 08:01 PM

Tabu would be VERY hard to compete with. Not only the coffee, drinks, delicious food...the warm inviting staff and comfy environment.

Capt Jeff and TQ are is right on. Though this is so common and why many businesses do not succeed all over the world.

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/29/06 09:24 PM

Star, Why bother opening your own coffee shop when there are already several on the island for sale? Coconets and Island Internet are both up for grabs.
Posted By: Chris

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/30/06 01:06 AM

Island Internet is up for sale?
Posted By: reaper

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/30/06 02:56 AM

Dear Star,
I tried a new business in Belize without doing much research also. It was called the Belize HoCaye League. I didn't realize no one had money to buy our franchises. We had 6 teams for sale. The ice making machine couldn't keep up with our outdoor rink's needs, the zamboni got stolen at customs and then our chief zamboni driver passed away. Good luck with the poll.

Re: NEW COFFEE SHOP - 03/30/06 03:08 AM

The hog league that you started is still producing many fine players...but they all eat alot. Please advise! We need to start shipping them off to other teams, or maybe we could sell them off to Charlene???
