How can I become a Coffee-Biker and who will help me to find a suitable location? These and other questions reach us frequently. We take this as an opportunity to answer 3 of the most frequently asked questions about self-employment with Coffee-Bike in this blog post.
1. I have no experience as a barista, can I still become a Coffee-Biker?
This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions. At this point we would like to go directly into a major advantage of our Coffee-Bike franchise concept. Basically, anybody can become a Coffee-Biker, regardless of whether you already have experience in this field. A certain enthusiasm for coffee and the preparation of coffee specialties should of course exist already. In addition, every newcomer will receive several days of intensive training at the Osnabrück Coffee-Bike Academy before his/her first job. This training includes the correct handling of the Coffee-Bike and the different ways of preparing our coffee specialities. We are happy to pass on our know-how to you. Our Coffee-Bike System enables you to follow your own individual path. For example, some of our partners are passionate baristas and love to just stand at the bike themselves every day and delight customers with delicious coffee. Other franchisees, on the other hand, choose the path of the entrepreneur and work with employees, while they themselves are responsible for acquisition and planning in the background. So as you can see, there is a place for every coffee enthusiast in the Coffee-Bike family.
2. What do I have to do to become a Coffee-Bike Franchise Partner?
Becoming a part of the Coffee-Bike family is not that difficult. To get a first overview, you can request a free information package on our website or, if you are already convinced, you can register directly for one of our information days. There you will have the opportunity to get to know the Coffee-Bike live, to taste the delicious coffee specialities on site and to exchange ideas with other interested parties. You will also receive further information about the bike and the franchise partnership with Coffee-Bike. Due to the current situation around the Corona pandemic, we have temporarily moved the Franchise Information Day to the virtual world and offer interested parties the opportunity to participate in an online live webinar. Participation is of course completely free of charge and without obligation.
The first step has been taken. Through the further process towards your own Coffee-Bike you will be accompanied step by step by the competent staff of the Coffee-Bike headquarters. They are just there to help franchisees and also existing partners with advice and support in all questions concerning their own business.
3. How do I find a good location for my bike?
Finally, let’s come to a question that already goes into a little more detail. Nevertheless, the location seems to be an issue that gives franchisees some headaches. But don’t panic, as a prospective Coffee-Biker you can also rely on the know-how of the Coffee-Bike headquarters. We are happy to assist you with all means at our disposal to help you find the perfect location. For this purpose, Coffee-Bike even has its own department that deals exclusively with the search for new locations for our franchise partners.
In addition to fixed locations, Coffee-Bikes are also perfectly suited as eye-catchers for various events (markets, city festivals, festivals etc.) and convince with professional coffee catering at private and business events (e.g. weddings, company anniversaries or promotion events). Our in-house event department is busy every day to acquire attractive bookings for our franchise partners.
We hope that some of your questions have been answered and that you are now ready to start your own Coffee-Bike business. Then register here for one of our live webinars and become part of the #coffeebikefamily soon.
