Coffee, Tea, & Books
By: Jeanette Moreno
If I would have a chance to start a business I would start a coffee, tea, and book shop. The name of the shop would be the JP’s Coffee and Tea. My main focus would be to get young kids to read more often. Reading is so important because not only does it expand your vocabulary, but your mind as well. I would locate a chain of shops near high schools all over California. This way high school kids will have a great place to study and hangout all while checking out new books. I will also have readings where I will bring authors to come and talk about their books. I would also have readings for elementary school kids. These readings will be conducted by high school kids this way they can help out their communities and get community service hours. The look I am going for is a vintage meets modern with comfy couches and chairs hanging off of ceilings. I want book shelves everywhere. I would sell different flavors of tea like jasmine, mint, lemon, & chamomile. For the coffee I would buy expresso machines. I would get the word out for my business through social media sites and offer deals the first couple of weeks like buy a cup of coffee get one free refill.
