The steps to open a 101 CAFFE’ store in Franchising: from the project to the opening


If you wish to start a safe business in a fast growing market, despite the economic crisis we are experiencing, 101CAFFE’ store represents a very interesting opportunity.

It’s the right time to start this kind of activity. Even during repeated lockdowns due to Covid-19, the domestic consumption of coffee and drinks (and most of all single-dose coffee, so pods and capsules), has even increased compared to the previous year.

This business could be moved in small locations, starting from 30 square meters. If you have more space, at least 50 square meters, you can choose the format Retail with take away coffee shop by combining the store with a small coffee shop where people can buy and consume in a single space, suitable for a family-run business or with employees.

If you want to have more details about this opportunity, take part in the free live webinar on Thursday 18 February from 17:00 to 18:00 with Marco Zannini, in charge of 101CAFFE’ Business Development in Italy and abroad and Angelica Chimienti, 101CAFFE’ Training Manager. You’ll understand how we will support you step by step if you decide to join 101CAFFE’ and manage your store with excellent results!

Training for the franchisee and any sales staff

You do not necessarily need to have experience in our market in order to open your 101 CAFFE’ franchise store, in fact there is a complete and continuous training that will allow you to carry out your business with excellent results right away.

The initial phase of the training is very important because it is the moment in which the franchisee begins to understand the mechanisms of the entire process and to relate to the company staff who will then be at his side in the daily management activity of the store. The training program initially includes a part in presence and, where this is not possible, through the online platform where the franchisee acquires knowledge of the products he will sell and learns how to use the software system. This training allows you to place orders and manage the cash desk, the warehouse and all the activity of the store. Immediately afterwards, operational training begins in the direct stores owned by the parent company and subsequently, by his own 101 CAFFE.

“Franchisees realize the advantages of being part of a structured and organized network right from the first training period, and then they have immediate proof in reality, during practice” says Angelica Chimienti, who at 101CAFFE’ deals with franchisees training.
