Pink Java Cafe
Barista training is the first and most important step to take when opening a coffee business. We are committed to providing you with the training and guidance necessary to increase your chances of a successful business venture. The owner of Pink Java Cafe, attended our coffee training school, Ivy League Barista Academy, in July of 2009 and realized the benefits immediately. Through our training he was able to prepare espresso based drinks, hire successful employees, and learned how to run day-to-day operations pertaining to the coffee industry. He took full advantage of our barista training as well as our coffee shop consulting on how to operate a coffee business. The success he experienced instantaneously is undeniable.
Design and Layout
After training, the owner was ready to start thinking about what type of business he wanted, the look and feel he was going for, and the target market. The layout and design of the business is one of the most crucial parts of opening a coffee shop, drive thru, cart or kiosk. The flow with reference to equipment and POS transaction positioning will play a vital role in the efficiency of your business. As you can see, the owner had a very unique vision for Pink Java Cafe. Being located in a prominent tourist area (Pink Jeep Tours in Sedona Arizona) he felt it was important to stick with the theme and atmosphere of his location. Advanced Fabrication’s design team took this into consideration and together designed a cafe that was undeniably a class above his competition.
In today’s society, branding isn’t just a logo on the bottom of an advertisement, it’s creating a design that is eye catching and memorable. Successful brands represent the product you provide, the service you give, and the dedicated customers you have. Pink Java Cafe worked with Advanced Fabrication consultants to transform the company into an unforgettable brand.
