As a Starbucks barista, I'm trying to assess an opportunity that I learned from a friend of mine called "The Mobile Barista" www.TheMobileBarista.com Has anyone heard of them? It seems like a new business opportunity; at the very least, I thought is was an interesting concept.
Thanks in advance for your feedback, my fellow baristas!
To be honest, looking over their site, it doesn't sound like a bad gig; to free myself from the confines of work at Starbucks and to have my own little business selling coffee from my bike would be rather wonderful :)
Hello Lisa! IMO, this would be a good idea for a cafe business start up. You just have to be careful in choosing where to buy your cafe supplies. Since it's a mobile cafe, I assume you're going to offer takeaway coffees, right?
Very interesting concept! I didn't see a lot of information so I emailed them. Looks amazing. In 2010 I bought my own very small coffee stand, it wsa a great idea! Although I didn't make a killing, I did sell it for a nice profit at the end and did learn a whole lot about business. A priceless investment in my coffee career. I'd say do it! But I'm an optimist. Do it this spring, and give it till fall to see if you really like it. But you have to jump in with both feet! I would love to hear more about it if you do, keep me updated!!
