Coffee Shop Construction Frequently Asked Questions

Coffee shops provide a space for people to relax or work while enjoying a beverage and snack. If you want to add a coffee shop to an existing construction project or build a stand-alone shop, you may have a few questions about the process.

How Much Does It Cost to Build a Coffee Shop?

The cost of construction varies based on several factors. One critical factor is the coffee shop’s size and coffee shop design. A cafe with seating will often cost more to build than a smaller location that offers takeout coffee and snacks only.

The types of food and drink that the cafe will carry also influences the price of construction. If the owner only wants to serve drinks and pre-packaged snacks, they will only need a partial kitchen, making the cost of construction lower. If they plan on baking snacks or offering sandwiches or small meals, you’ll need to plan for a larger kitchen space.

When you work with us as the coffee shop owner, we’ll help you develop a budget and decide what features the coffee shop needs to have.

Can You Build Office Building Coffee Shops?

A coffee shop in an office building provides workers with a place to get a mid-day pick-me-up or meet with clients. If you’re planning an office building, incorporating a coffee shop into the building’s design can be worthwhile. Another option is to add a coffee shop to an existing office building to make it more attractive to current and future tenants. We can help you design a coffee shop that fits into a new or existing office building.

What Percentage of Startup Capital Should Be for the Construction of the Coffee Shop?

You’ll have multiple expenses when opening a coffee shop, from advertising the new business to purchasing equipment to hiring baristas and managers. You’ll need to allocate your startup capital wisely to make the most of it. How much of your startup capital you should spend on construction depends on your expected income from the new cafe and the cost of your other expenses.

Generally, you don’t want to spend all of your capital on the construction but should be prepared to have a considerable amount of your cash go toward the project. We’ll work with you to develop a budget and help you get a better understanding of the portion of your capital that should go toward construction versus other startup costs.
