How does Espresso Academy Quick Consulting works

Are you evaluating your business project? An innovative idea in the world of coffee and coffee shops? To better analyze your idea, you may find it useful to consult an expert, but ...

... Most of the time asking for advice involves costs, contracts and important commitments, too important and expensive for a business that is still in the conception and analysis phase, for a phase in which we are above all analyzing the idea and its feasibility.

The quick consultancy project was born precisely to put at your disposal a pool of experts for a pre-consultancy, evaluation and analysis service, with very low costs and a very reduced commitment, what you need when your idea is not yet in the operational phase. With the Espresso Academy quick consultancy we will not waste a month to define the consultancy contract, we will work immediately, together, on your idea!

The quick consultancy service will allow you to have all the necessary elements to decide if and how to get your project into the operational phase. A board will support you in your decisions: the Espresso Academy Consultancy Team. 

 How much the Quick Consulting costs and what it includes

Espresso Academy Quick Consulting was born as a pre-consulting service, to allow you to better analyze your project in the decision-making phase.

At your contact request we will ask you to fill in a survey to better understand your idea, the context where it will operate and your personal skills and knowledge.

After the survey we will discuss together the timing and deadlines of the project and we can officially start our “quick” collaboration.

An online meeting will allow us to get to know each other personally, to give you our initial opinion of your project and to clarify every detail of the idea directly with you.

At that point we will be able to provide you, in a short time, with all the elements that can help you in your decision.
  • An evaluation of the market where your project will operate
  • An analysis of the target and therefore of the ideal locations
  • A range of project history cases that may be related to yours
  • A cost analysis and a draft of an economic-financial analysis
  • An analysis of the critical points and strengths of your project
  • The most essential steps to go through to start the project.

While we are working on your project you will be given access to our training material to cover any topic that might be important for your business (video courses and manuals are included in the Quick Consultancy package) 

A final meeting will put the board at your disposal to analyze the material produced and help you to decide if and how to move forward with your plan.

The total cost will be € 480, all inclusive.

Of course, our team can also support you even later, in a subsequent operational phase.
