    it's going to more then an internet cafe, the internet is going to be free, but you'll need your own laptop...but there'll be chess, bridge, backgammon tournaments, book signings, used book exchange libraary...lots more...need help with the business and start up plan, want some bank dollars

    dont know alot about business, but i can give you some ideas about a coffe shop (tons of them in washington state (home of starbucks)). Anyways, the coffee shops up here, have some sitting room, most people either sit quietly and read paper study. Lots of people come to a coffee shop just to study and drink coffee. The coffee shops around here ussually have some nice little pastries and things. Might consider making it a smoothie place too. I dont know about where your from but real fruit smoothies are getting really popular in california and here (washington).

    Might want to pick a store location next to a library or a big book store (or even in the book store.. Example: barnes and nobles). As mentioned above, people love to sit and read and sip coffee for hours.

    Just some ideas..Good luck!

    ideas

    Set up as a gaming cafe as well but if you want people to only brows then limit game accsess to certain hours. Use a 100 mbit lan for games and allow games to played over network. Anouther good idea (i spell on posts what i say the word like) if you can aford it get a projector for stuff like spectating and TV. Oh btw only arm systems for games with ge force 2 or any other decent gfx card 256 megs of ram 128 megs if you decide to use win 98 se instead.

    When I was getting my MSCIS, had a guy in my class who did up a really nice business plan for a internet coffee shop, I'll try to get ahold of him dealer if you want, haven't seen or heard from him in a while though, so might take me awhile to get ahold him. :D

    I'll do my best, even if I can't get a ahold of him, I'll try to help you, I know how to do business plans, and can give you the basic format, areas to cover, and ways to make it shine, after all you want people and the bank to invest in it.

    Don't forget about people for investor's, banks aren't the only way to get money.:D

    here's my real problem iceman...my basic plan is finished, pretty impressive too, but I don't have the resources to research the investment dollars, and prospective profits and projections...

    My idea is excellent, with an unbelievable name...once I get this started, I'm sure it'll become a ripe and attractive franchise candidate...anyway, I'm stoked...hope you can help, if not, I still appreciate the effort


    thanx again

    When you get it going, dealer, let me know where. I have a lot of vacation time saved up. I'll come up and check it out. Maybe even set up an XP-erience Grand Opening Party. :cool:
