How much money you should use while building a Cat Cafe?

I have heard that they use a lot of money to manage and have a stable place in the early starts of this, maybe it is a lie but I really want to know because I would like to have one.

Bill’s Answer

The startup costs associated with opening a cat cafe business are expensive. Some of the more sizable expenses include:

- Purchasing or leasing a space for the cat cafe
- Building out the space so that it’s feline-friendly
- Getting a Point-of-Sale system for selling your cafe products
- Buying food preparation equipment for making food and drinks
- Buying cat pods, litter boxes, food and water dishes, food and litter
- Buying the ingredients for preparing customers’ food and beverages
- Business owners who want to keep startup expenses low can forgo the food preparation equipment and ingredients. Instead of making dishes and beverages on-site, a cat cafe business can partner with a nearby cafe that’ll make the dishes. Kanchan Singh used this setup when she opened - Crumbs & Whiskers. An employee would take customers’ orders, and then go pick up the food and drinks at a nearby cafe and bring them back to the cat cafe.

What are the ongoing expenses for a cat cafe?
- The ongoing expenses of a cat cafe business are substantial. They include rent, utilities, food costs, employees’ wages and all the expenses that come with caring for cats.

Jerome’s Answer

... and in addition to the excellent answers Bill's given:
- Insurance
- Taxes and licensing fees
- Advertising and publicity
Starting any sort of business -- especially a brick-and-mortar one (as opposed to Internet-based) is a serious undertaking. If you have little or no experience and can get the opportunity to work for someone else who's done it, especially if it's a similar business to the one you plan to open, then you might consider taking that even if the pay's low. Learning what's involved is worth a lot.

Good luck!
