"My Family and I are planning to open a coffee drive thru business. Upon my extensive online research, I came across Ed Arvidson's website for his coffee business school, and his designs for drive thru buildings. I then acquired a copy of his book to help in our education in starting a drive thru business.  Within the first few pages of reading, I immediately realized the value of this tool. It laid out all the information from start to finish; what to expect, start up costs, business plan development, and the "know how's" of the business were all touched upon.  The text was clear, concise, and straight to the point. I was once told by a business plan expert, that when writing your business plan, you need to clearly express what the "meat and potatoes" of your business are.  This book clearly meets that objective.  I highly recommend this book to anyone desiring to enter the coffee shop industry.  You can definitely profit from the information, and if you're like me, wanting to ensure your company's success thorough research, hard work, and dedication, this book can guide you all the way through the process."
