Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, with about 2.25 billion cups consumed everyday. With the dawn of the Celtic Tiger, Ireland became a cosmopolitan coffee drinking nation.
The best businesses began with coffee. Lloyd's of London started as a coffee house in 1688, as a place to buy insurance and get a good cup of coffee. Now, Lloyd's has grown into a world renowned insurance company.
Entering this rapidly growing market can be easy with the number of coffee franchise options that are out there. Some of these franchises have won a number of awards, too.
Mobile coffee businesses are also springing up, since not everyone has ready access to a retail outlet or high street business. For example, Cafe2U brings superb quality espressos and other treats (smoothies, juices, cookies, salads, hot foods, and more) to customers with a mobile service. They often go to business districts, retail parks, industrial estates and various functions. Bean 2U Café allows franchisees flexibility in their working hours, while delivering a great product. In the summer, they even serve frappes, iced coffees and smoothies!
Coffee shop entrepreneurs are springing up to capitalise on this extremely successful market. There are many opportunities to enter the coffee market through a franchise opportunity. With the coffee market exploding, now is the time to take advantage of a coffee franchise opportunity!
