Are you running your Cafe or 

is your Cafe running you?

Let us help you take control, make more profit and avoid burnout 

60 Minute Coaching Sessions Designed for Busy Cafe Owners. 

As I am sure you probably know, running a cafe can very quickly take over your life. Long hours, staff problems and admin can easily leave you feeling overwhelmed and burnt out.

Understandably when you get into this kind of situation things can slip. Suddenly you don't have time to pay attention to the smaller details or work pro actively on the business as you are always in firefighting mode.

Unless you manage to break out of this cycle you seem to end up working harder but not earning anymore. This also has an impact on the value of your business and its attractiveness to buyers.

Having been in the situations above myself, escaped and lived to tell the tale I am now passionate about helping other cafe owners to regain control of their business, their time and their future.

How Does it Work?
These sessions are a combination of coaching and consultancy which basically means that we work with you providing support as well as immediate solutions.

 The sessions are run via Zoom and what we cover during the session is entirely up to you. When you book a time to catch up you let us know what you would like to cover and we will tailor the session to meet your needs.

The idea is that these sessions offer you cost effective support with no commitment. We are there as needed to support you as a coach, consultant, marketing dept, mentor, HR support, silent partner and occasionally a psychiatrist!

We learnt far more about the financial running of our business during our time with Paul, than we had over the years before hand.

Paul Leach

I grew up in the food business, my parents owned two very successful restaurants and I remember working (or a least thinking I was) in them from a very early age.

All through school I knew I wanted to go in to the hospitality industry and the day that I started at college could not come quick enough. I spent an enjoyable three years learning my trade and left college to join my parents in their second restaurant.

In 1992 my parents decided that the time was right for them to sell up and I felt it was also the right time for me to go out on my own.

In 1993 I opened my first Cafe called “Hogarth’s” and that is really where it all began. Since then I have built up and sold nine food businesses and loved every minute (well most of it) and learnt a lot about operations and how the sale process works.

I love the food industry and really wanted to crack double digits and open shop number ten, unfortunately the two things that I value the most in my life, my marriage and my health probably would not have lasted so I called it a day.

I am now using the experience I gained growing, running and selling my businesses to help others to do the same. It works well for me as I am still involved in the industry that I love and it helps my clients to avoid some of the mistakes that I made when setting up and then selling my first couple of cafes

If you would like some support, guidance or just an objective opinion then you are in the right place.

I would love the opportunity to show you more about how my approach, experience and resources can help you to improve your business.

Thanks to Paul for his insightful, logical and realistic help. Over the course of a few conversations, he was able to help me out with some very simple, yet incredibly intelligent and concise ideas as to how to go about preparing my business for sale. His customer concern was very genuine, something I didn’t find through meeting with other brokers who just treated me like another number. Can’t recommend highly enough.
