It would be lovely to open a success coffee shop and let people just flow in to enjoy your products and service and spend their money by success coffee shop. But there are always some business related things to be taken into consideration so running a successful coffee shop is definitely not just a picnic!

Remember my previous blog post about successful coffee shop? There we went deep down to:
- quality & selection
- service design & service itself
- selection & seasonality
- trends & social media
I HATE NUMBERS BUT I DO LOVE MONEY”
To be able to create a successful coffee shop you need to be interested in numbers. Some of them, at least.
If you are like me and suffer to like or even understand numbers, I have a tip for you. Try to think the numbers are there to help you and serve you, not to make you confused or ruin your day. Remember there are many areas hugely effecting on your business and making it profitable (or not). I listed three if them below.
Be aware of the number of the service providers and know the coffee products and services available in the area. Also, keep an eye on the quality in general. Do you know the number of people commuting through the area on a daily basis? Find out the gaps in the area: what would people like to have but is not yet available?

Some things you want to give thoughts already before opening the coffee shop.
Vision and mission. Be clear and know what you want to do. You can’t “just sell coffee”. What exactly you want to do?
- Who are you selling to? What is your target group and will you reach them as planned? Who would you like to get as customers? Do you have the correct offering for them?
- Cost structure. Are you aware of all the costs that running a coffee shop or a business in general brings along? Especially staff costs can be huge so be smart in shift planning. Peak hours need more hands and feet than other times. Also, if there is a lot of manual work or table service, those need to be taken into consideration when planning the shifts.
- Pricing. Start with coffee as it is the product with best margin. Find the overall balance between the competitors’ pricing and your cost structure.
That’s why our coffee buyers travel the world, carefully selecting the finest beans. That’s why our master roasters stand watch over each batch, bringing each bean to its peak of flavour. And that’s why our friendly baristas handcraft each beverage to your order. We want you to discover your perfect, personal drink. Hey, when you feel as passionately about coffee as we do (and you do), it’s what the bean deserves.
Bringing you a perfect cup of coffee. It’s what got us started back in 1971, and it’s what keeps us going today. (That, plus the coffee.)

Tube Cafe The coffee is excellent, the place is great and the price is super affordable and waiters are friendly with customers. I like drinking Frappe Thnol Coffee.
The quality and customer service are excellent. The price is relative to other big brands such as Brown and Starbuck. I recommend increasing the quantity of the drink if not decrease the price. Since Tube Café builds the expectation about the affordable price as its branding slogan, it is good to have a larger cup with the current price. As a student, I can only afford it once per week.
The coffee here is a nice taste. An environment so refreshing when you have met with teamwork or friend.
The Cambodian Post office was built in 1890, then eventually restored and fully reopened in 2004. It fronts a small square on Street 13 — really Cambodian Post office is just a widening of the road — and is surrounded by other examples of colonial architecture in various states of upkeep. The post office is open 07:30 to 17:00, with a healthy two-hour lunch break from noon. Stamp collectors can make impulse purchases at the philatelic counter.
About to head out on the bus to Battambang or Siem Reap and need a good book for the trip, but you’ve already read all of the Cambodia backpacker favourites, head to one of the English-language bookstores in town to find a wide selection of notable novels and treasured tomes.
If you’re looking for an excuse to start drinking mid-afternoon, Kingdom Breweries offers a tour of their Phnom Penh facilities, which includes at least two sample beers.
The brewmaster explains that drinking beer is a legitimate way to spend an afternoon.
Phnom Penh’s only formal night market, Psar Reatrey overlooks the riverside from the central reservation that separates downtown and northern Phnom Penh — it’s easiest to enter by the gate at the north end of riverside to avoid scrambling between lines of parked scooters. As with Orussey, the Night Market is chiefly oriented towards the local market, but is definitely worth a dip to pick up some very reasonably priced clothes — there’s not a huge lot else really aside from some tacky and generic souvenirs.
Established around 2009, Brown has become one of the most popular café for both Cambodians and expats. Currently, there are more than 10 outlets, where customers constantly come in and out. Moreover, the unique experience and the highest quality of coffee and pastry products is what Brown want to bring to the customers, and to make every cup counts. Brown has become one of the most successful Café for having their own local brand. A cup of coffee costs 2.5$ to 4$. It is an acceptable price with its taste, environment and friendly service. Therefore, it make its way to the top.
Sovanna Restaurant has something to offer just about everyone. They have a newer, more upscale restaurant a few doors down, and have recently renovated the original. Even though Sovanna has lost the dirty-beer-garden feel it once had, the food is still excellent. The grilled beef and pork, tender, smoky and slightly sweet, are the standouts, but the sngor chrouk trey, fish soup with a lemongrass broth, lime juice, and fresh herbs, is not to be missed. Their menu has photographs and English translations, making this a good first Khmer BBQ experience for out-of-town visitors.
