In my coffee shop business plan package, I have a chapter on external revenue sources that may significantly increase your sales revenue if implemented and managed properly.
Selling coffee beans, coffee beverages and assorted food items inside the four walls of your coffee shop is a clear way of earnings that all owners should be familiar with. After all, those are pretty much the reasons we're open and clients patronize us.

But, there are additional sources of earnings that may come in handy to help boost your bottom line that some store owners say cannot be dismissed.
Deli catering is one route to make available any time for neighborhood company meeting lunches, company' grand openings near you, luncheons, holiday parties, media events, the list continues. This would be easy single sandwiches with chips to big sandwich loaves made on huge loaves of French bread and cut in tiny hunks.
Bakery catering is another way to boost revenues. This is to the scale of a full-size bakery if you're at that level or only supplying pastries for morning business meetings and such. Naturally, where would we be without java itself so you know what's coming next!
Coffee service is wonderful for corporate and other events in your area. You can find the'drink on the move' containers which are approximately 96 oz – 120 ounce, provide the cups, condiments including smoke, stir sticks, etc..
Together with the coffee service goes a great addition of bakery, even if you don't bake it you sure can sell it! You may even add on milk, tea, OJ and other drinks.
