Meet Lisa, our course creator:

'Five years ago I was having the same thoughts, I was sick of working hard for somebody else, and whenever I visited a coffee shop I found myself thinking about how I could do things better or differently.

I quickly learnt that making the decision to quit my job and open a coffee shop was the easy part, the 18 months that followed were much harder as I researched and tried to find information on what steps I actually needed to take to launch my dream.'


What can you expect?

This 10 module e-course includes workbooks, activities, downloadable templates and resources for you to use in your business.

Unlike a classroom based course on the subject, this course takes you through EVERY step of planning, developing and actually opening the doors to your own successful coffee shop. And because of the nature of a home based course it gives you the time you need to actually digest and implement each step in your own time.

Who is Lisa?


Lisa, Coffee Shop Owner, entrepreneur and caffeine addict. I worked in the fast paced world of international events for 12 years before deciding to take a break and open a coffee shop of my own.

I didn’t just want to open a coffee shop, I wanted to open a great coffee shop but I was constantly frustrated at the lack of information available out there. Whether it was about learning how to find the right shop unit, how to create a professional consistent brand across the business, legal obligations, allergen information, the best and most effective way to layout a coffee shop, what suppliers to use… I was quickly feeling overwhelmed with the task at hand and it seemed to be taking me a long time to move forward.

Since opening my shop, people have frequently asked me for advice on all aspects of starting and running the business… it’s understandable, it’s time consuming and hard work but extremely flattering to me.

In the end it took 18 months of planning, researching and negotiating to finally open the doors but now I have gained all of that knowledge it will be sooooo much easier next time now that I know exactly what steps I need to take. I can save you hours and hours of time trying to figure this out on your own and provide you with all the knowledge, skills and resources you’ll need to start a successful coffee shop.
