Mondays are good day to discover something new in the Austin music scene. This week is no different. The music begins at 8:00pm at Flipnotics on Barton Springs Road. Ron Scott, Nic Walker and Amy Annelle will be sharing their music with the coffee crowd. A quick browse brought up some of Annelle’s music, and she’ll be perfect for Flip’s space. She possesses a voice reminiscent of Margo Timmons and her music is a blend of moody sound scapes and acoustic comfort. Should be perfect for kicking back and letting the holiday madness float away.
Maybe the coffee shop scene is not for you, or maybe your just in a hurry to have your buzz. Well don’t forget that McDonald’s serves a pretty decent cup of coffee, and all sizes are the same price. McDonald’s has really improved their coffee over the last couple of years, so don’t be afraid to dive in. You can find McDonald’s everywhere – right next to the Starbucks, just north of Macungie borough on Route 100, or over on Hamilton Ave in Trexlertown.
If the bookstore wants to keep books in inventory to reduce order and delivery costs, it can use a kanban system in conjunction with POD to keep books available while keeping inventory costs at a minimum. A kanban system uses a “pull” process to initiate the creation or purchase of a product. When only a specific number of books remain in inventory, an order is placed, and more books are printed. Here’s how this works.
There are of course other methods of getting that morning boost. You can always brew your own cup of Joe first thing and take it with you to work. But, many people are turned off by the prospect of the extra time spent brewing and work spent cleaning the mess up. If you’re a single cup kind of person, there’s no need to worry about that extra clean up and maneuvering. There are single cup coffee makers on the market that will brew up exactly as much as you need quickly, saving you the time and money of having to go to Starbucks or one of its many rivals or subsidiaries.
If you want to figure out what the debt service is for this business, take the true discretionary cash flow and divide it by 33%, as the most a buyer should pay yearly on debt service is 33% of their cash flow. That number is then divided by 12 for the year. The result is the most that your business can afford to pay monthly, including a recoup of a down payment and still pay an owner, and remain solvent.
But if you want to deviate from the standard Starbucks fair, where can you go? Turn left out of the Wal-Mart Shopping Center down Route 222 and you’ll come across the Java Joint. It’s a quaint, teeny tiny little drive through coffee shack – but their Mocha Latte easily outshines Starbucks’ anytime. And the service is super friendly.
Today, some people are too busy to brew their own coffee at home and drop by a coffee cart to get a cup of their favorite brew. Hanging out at coffee houses is a common indulgence for some people. They find it enjoyable to spend an afternoon with friends at a cafe and chit-chat for hours over coffee.
