The Coffee Café industry is currently one of the biggest and fastest growing sectors in business. The industry consists of a mix of individual cafés, hotel cafés and retail café chains.
The main bulk of revenue is earned by small, individual cafés, run mostly by families and friends. It is a relatively unorganized sector. There are millions of such cafés around the world, and they provide customers with a homely, casual experience.
The bulk of these cafés are mainly in Europe, where every little town or village has local cafés, where people gather together for a conversation over coffee, or just to be alone with their thoughts.
These cafés have been the birthplace and sanctuary for various creative minds, revolutionaries and thinkers of our time. The most recent example is the author J.K. Rowling, who has written most of the Harry Potter series of books, sitting at her local café.
These cafés set themselves apart from retail chain cafés and hotel cafés because they provide customers with a homely, classic appeal, which cannot be emulated.
The vast popularity of these retail chains is shown in the rapid international growth of brands like Starbucks. Customers can do to any Starbucks across the world and know exactly what to expect.
