I am Claire Bowen. Author of 'The Daily Grind - how to open and run a coffee shop that makes money'. Coffee shop and cafe consultant, Speaker and Coffeepreneur.

I work with new and established hospitality owners to focus them on creating an outstanding coffee shop or cafe.

'The Daily Grind' has become an international best selling book since its publication in November 2015.  It is now regarded as the default book in it's class. It is a practical guide to opening and running a coffee shop or cafe, and is backed up with an online resource centre.

It is available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle download

Consultancy Services

I am one half of 'The Coffeepreneurs'.  Andrew Bowen and myself work on each project together which has that added advantage of combining both our experiences of working hospitality, retail and healthcare.

A typical project will last between six months and two years and we work alongside our clients to deliver their vision.

We like to work with clients from the very conception of their plans as this will be the most cost effective way for them. We can reduce the time taken to open by 50% and increase their likelihood of success dramatically.

For existing businesses who either want to expand or sell we will develop an strategy to get the the best return in the shortest possible time.

We also work with departmental stores, garden centres, art galleries and bike shops to open a profitable hospitality aspect.

  • Charlie MacKensie Charlie MacKensie Amazon 5* Review
    This is a fantastic book for anyone opening a cafe or an owner who is struggling and needs to refocus on the business operations. Often owners (me included) focus on working in the cafe and forget they are running a small business. This book will help you to know the financial numbers you need to be profitable, where you should be located and crucially some great marketing strategies to get and keep customers coming back.
