Ten: Think about both pros and cons of starting a juice bar

  • Rapid payback and high benefit. Statistics show that it is possible to get a full initial investment payback and reach a steady income.
  • Strong demand. Juices and smoothies are a rescue in the hot summer and vitamin restoration in winter. (This has to do with a multi-seasonal juice bar).
  • The juice and smoothie quality directly depend on the quality of fruit and vegetables you choose, the price of those differs from season to season, which makes the cost of freshly squeezed juice higher than a regular pack one can find in a store.
  • Rises in the price of ingredients, fallible suppliers, and bad location choices.
