Creating a small business is less of an undertaking now than ever before. With Vend, Shopify, Xero and the myriad other cloud-based services, entrepreneurs are only a few clicks away from all the resources they need to start up a small business - without the enormous overheads.
A Vend ambassador in the UK has created a model that typifies this quick brick and (potentially) click paradigm. As a wholesaler of commercial espresso machines, TheCoffeeShop Co. is essentially selling just that. Coffee shops.
In one purchase TheCoffeeShop customers receive a commercial espresso machine for making coffee, Vend for selling coffee, and an iPad for processing the sale. Lease a coffee cart, create a brand, enable a payment service such as Paypal, and there you are. A business owner.
It sounds simple because it is, honest-to-goodness, simple.
