Here are my thoughts about a coffee shop that may be beneficial for you to read.
No Bosses, No Hassles?
The greatest aspect of owing your own coffee shop is that you don’t have any hassling from your boss. The moment you hand in your resignation, you can totally lay down the stress of working for someone else.
Perhaps you only make time to hang out with dear friends during the holidays. Maybe you never spend an entire 24-hour day with your life partner, except on holidays.

It is something to think about when making a commitment like opening a café.
You may already realize that your boss doesn’t care about your personal life. What they really care is your work efficiency or your work performances. The boss doesn’t consider that his employees may be distracted by commitments at home, or domestic chores. But when you open a coffee shop, is the situation going to be the same? As the boss and owner, thought and consideration of your customers and staff will be crucial to your success. What expectations do you have for your staff? What expectations do you have for your customers?
Of course, you should be aware that you and your staff are small team, and you should work with one other to achieve the same goal of success. It can become challenging if you are not trained in how to manage a staff. You should treat your staff respectfully and with friendship, but also maintain your status as boss. If your staff member is late for work, or they ask a leave at the peak rush time, or they are unmotivated or rude, you will need to manage it tactfully.
