Consulting and Business Advice
Running a restaurant, café or takeaway is hard. Really hard.
What they don’t tell you about is the stress, anxiety and mental drain that can come with running a business on your own.
Starting up and running a successful hospitality outlet puts incredible strain on personal lives and relationships, many of which fail because there is just often no work-life balance.
You often need to be the manager, the server, the bartender, the barista, the cook, as well as the admin, the marketing team, the accountant… All while being a parent, a husband or a wife, family support, friend...
There’s a reason you don’t see many people succeed in hospitality ownership after 5-10 years. If they are successful, they are overwhelmed.
Have you replied to that text? Did you call that customer back about catering? Is your pricing correct? How will you cover staff changes during school holidays?
It takes a toll and it can be exhausting. But it doesn’t have to be.
The Café Collective offers one off and ongoing consulting packages to take care of as little or as much of your business as you like. We can provide advice on matters that are important to you, or we can cover all administration and accounting duties so that you can get on with giving your customers (and friends and family) the best of you.
