Coffee franchises constitute an $18 billion business, and there's no end to the coffee boom in sight. If you're looking for an opportunity to set up your own coffee shop, there are any number of websites that can help you find and choose a franchise. Here are some of the questions you need to ask yourself if you're considering a franchise.

How much of an initial investment is required? Will the company be able to help you with your initial financing? How much do you need to have in reserve as available assets? Will you be taking over an existing operation or building a new one, and if it's the latter, will the company be able to give you the support you need in construction, design, and equipment? What can you realistically expect in terms of earnings?

Choosing Among the Many Coffee Franchises

If your knowledge of coffee franchises pretty much stops with Starbuck's, Peet's, and the Coffee Beanery, you may be surprised and a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of coffee franchises that are available. To help you in your initial search and final decision-making, there are several sites that provide directories of available franchises. These directories may offer company profiles, reviews of their products, geographical information, and much more.

Taking that first step toward being an entrepreneur can be frightening. Use the resources available to you on the Web to educate yourself in every aspect of the business, from roasting techniques to handling the payroll. It's never been so easy to get all the information you need to make an informed decision.
