Coffee happens to be one of the biggest money makers in the United States. Why? Mainly because there are a large number of people who are addicted to caffeine. This means that they have to have at least a minimum of two cups per day.
This being the case why not open up your own coffee delivery business. There are plenty of places that are always overcrowded in the morning with people trying to cut their morning cup of coffee. If you offer a service that will bring the coffee directly to them, you will not only save them time, but also money. You will need to check with local laws on whether or not you are able to run a business out of your home. Once you get the ok to do this then you are well on your way.
The first thing you will need to do is find the best tasting coffee. It may be beneficial to ask some of your neighbors and friends over for a taste testing party. You can then purchase several different types of coffee and see which one appeals to the majority. You should also include various different creamers, and coffee varieties. Keep in mind that the more expensive does not necessarily mean that it is better. Once you have decided the kind of coffee you then need to decide on the price you will charge per cup. You should have everything from small cups, to large cups. Remember that you need to take into consideration the cost of supplies in addition to the cost of the coffee. This will have a huge effect on how much you want to charge. When it comes to supplies you may want to invest in joining wholesale club, where you can purchase large quantities of supplies for a reasonable amount. What you may also need to add to your list of supplies is some way to transport your coffee so that all of your cups are delivered hot. There are plenty of coolers that are made especially for this purpose, and are pretty reasonably priced.
Once you have figured all of this out you can then you can decide on what areas or business you want to deliver to. Since you are just starting out you may want to print up a few flyers and deliver them to some of your local business. Remember you will not be able to travel to far with the coffee since you want to make sure that it is delivered hot.
This is also the type of business where you will want to hire some additional help. You will need one person to handle the deliveries and another person to handle taking the incoming phone calls, and yet another person to be constantly brewing and fixing the coffee. These are just a few suggestions on how you can start and run your own coffee delivery business right out of your own home. Of course it will take a lot of hard work on your part to make this business a success, but this is something that can be accomplished, if you are willing to put in the effort, time and energy required.
