Opening Cyber cafe with 10 gaming pcs and 10 work/learning pcs. the basic business plan is this:

10 gaming pcs for lan or net gaming (valve games plus mmorpg etc...)
10 pcs for homework/ email/ web /learning etc...

It will have a partitions sound proof area for the gaming.

A rest area with subject related magazines, drinks snacks etc...

Cable tv throughout with 3-4 lcd screens.

I will also be building custom pcs, repairing upgrading and teaching cumputer and software stuff.

the net connection will be 3mb line could be more but i doubt it.

3 printers
2 scanners
1 photocopier

$50 membership per month of pay as you go type service.

The spec for the gaming pcs as follows

softwarewinxphome$100 Casesred/black$40 CPUAMD 64 3200+$200 MemKingston 3200 1gb$170 H/DWD HD 80gb$80 V/card6800GT$400 DVD/Cdromany$0 mobogigabyte$120 Monitor17" lcd$120 Mouselogitec$50 Keyboardms$30 Total$1,310
this is built by me. non-brand pc

The intial outlay will be about $20,000 yearly net (after taxes etc..) $75,000-$150,000.

Anyone have any good ideas about this, what they think of it etc... plus has anyone ever done this before and have any good ideas about how i should proceed.

Thanks

I would recommend you set aside a couple empty boots for people to bring in their own PCs. It was a BIG hit at a cafe I used to go to. It also gave everyone a chance to show off their PCs. Then, you could go a step further and offer visual upgrades and make a little bit more profit. Just a thought! Good luck!

Charge $100 for a private booth with free tissues, with a waterproof everything.

After each use, have it automatically sprayed clean, and flushed with water, and it is ready for the next person to use :p.

Come on man, gotta think about the profit :p

I don't have any particularly good ideas to give you...but wow, it sounds like a great (and fun) business venture! Maybe you could pop into a few other cyber cafes to get an idea on what the 'competition' provide?

Best of luck to you though, sounds pretty cool :)
