What you need is a marketing plan wherein you are sure that most people will buy your products or avail of your services. Make sure that you include the location of your business on your business marketing plan. The location is one of the most important factors in determining the success or failure of a business. Usually, successful businesses are located where there are a lot of people who pass by. You should as well consider starting your cafe business in a location where there are many people such as malls and major city locations.
