Enjoyable and Informative Guide..., 4 Oct. 2004
Starting a cafe/sandwich bar is something that has been going through my mind for a while. Nearly all the literature out there is very US centric so it is really useful to find a good UK based book. The author's style is very readable and informative and has very good advice on subjects such as refridgeration issues, tax and employment and finding and fitting out a premises. The benefit of knowing some of the mistakes the author originally made on starting out and how to put them right is great. Although the book mentions business plans, it doesn't go into detail on how to put one together so you'll need to get another book to cover that, if like me you are not totally confident in putting one together. This book has definately given me the confidence to understand what I will need to do get things moving and I recommend it.
