As the name suggests, a juice bar is an establishment which, although it may offer other types of drinks, mainly serves fruit and vegetable juices.
But since it cannot be otherwise, it is not enough to own automatic juicers or a professional juicer to prepare juices. We have to offer more to the customer.
We are now going to provide you with a series of rules that will guide you in opening your own fruit and vegetable juice bar. How to make a fruit juice bar business plan?
Find a room: a room for natural juices does not need to cover a very large area. If we are content to sell juices, the furniture required for the establishment will be limited to a counter, a back counter serving as a location for equipment, a few tables and a terrace for the summer period. We have to keep in mind that part of our business, and obviously a significant part, has to be take out. In addition, it is important to study the daily production and any restrictions that may be encountered: evacuation system, washing points, etc. The planned production levels will define the most appropriate type of equipment. For example, the Mastery offers production advantages over most back-counter juicers or juicers when considering making more than 60 liters of juice per day.
As with any establishment open to the public, location plays a major role. A fresh juice contains a large amount of fruit, which has an impact on the high value of the final price. Premises located near administrative centers, high-traffic areas or commercial spaces will greatly promote the viability of the activity .
Competition: after having analyzed the previous point, it is advisable to study the competition present in the zone of installation of our establishment . Before starting our juice bar project , we must ensure that there is sufficient space left to generate our sales. But it is also good to analyze the competition and observe not only successful establishments, but also those that are having difficulties, and then try to determine the causes and reasons.
The climate: the profitability of the activity must be analyzed if the establishment is located in a city with particularly severe winters. Will we obtain sufficient income in the summer to be able to survive when winter arrives? Will we be creative in securing customers on colder days? It can be very helpful to focus on the idea that our juices are not only a refreshing drink, but also provide plenty of nutrients at all times of the year.
Investments: before purchasing the necessary equipment for your juice bar , you must ask for a quote to know precisely the investments to be made. It is then necessary to calculate the time necessary for the recovery of the invested capital and to study if the activity is profitable on the economic plan.
Bureaucracy: The administrative formalities required to start up an activity of this type are considerable. You will have to rely on the support of a professional advisor to be sure not to forget anything. Local regulations must be respected , especially when considering the establishment of an organic production chain .
Be original: you have to be original and bring something different in terms of decoration, juice, offers, etc. The different types of fruit juices to be offered in our premises must be studied in order to then complete our offer with other fresh and healthy products such as salads, smoothies, bowls for lunches and snacks, vegetarian sandwiches, etc. . This will allow us to increase our sales and attract new customers.
Equipment: use the machines that offer the best results. The availability of blender smoothies , of centrifuges for obtaining fruit and vegetable juices , of juicer and a pressing machine cold we will develop the full range of juices, including including vegetable milks . We will have to adapt the size of the equipment to our needs and, depending on the evolution of the activity, to acquire or not machines of greater capacities.
