How to open a cat cafe

How to open a cat cafe in the UK? The UK cat cafe business is heating up. I recently attended a cat cafe event in London where I found out how to open and run a cat cafe in the UK and how one cat cafe owner is making this dream come true. Here’s what I learned!

Who is behind this? Cat Cefee was set up by a husband and wife team, Sam and Samy from London, England. You may remember them from the recent cat cafe event I attended. Before that, I discovered that they have been running their cafe for three years in their spare time. After that event, I also realized that they have more ideas and plans for expanding and setting up cat cafes in the UK. If you want to run a cat cafe in the UK too, you might want to check out their blog and Facebook page.

One cat cafe owner with big dreams

The cat cafe business, although small, has been expanding across the UK. In just two years, their café has also doubled in size and their website already has a list of cat cafes that have been featured across the country. I also talked to Sam and Samy about their ambitions. They didn’t say they have big plans of opening a bunch of cat cafes across the country. They’re more realistic about their plans. Instead, their ideas are:

Start a cat cafe by setting up a café in a public place and see how their customers react. If they love it, maybe they could open a bigger café in a more upscale place.

Start a cat cafe in a country club to appeal to the upper class members.

Start a cat cafe for teenagers as a hobby. They could play music and play chess.

They see a lot of potential in running a cat cafe that does not necessarily have to be a commercial venture. For example, people could open up a cat cafe in their house for their own use and to provide a place for cats to go. They even started a Facebook page called My House is a Cat Cafe.

This is how Sam describes their dream cat cafe.

The most important thing that a cat cafe can do is to increase the chances of a rescued cat being adopted. If all you want is to play with cats, I can’t understand why you’d spend $300 to do that. If you can find a way to help more cats and reduce the number of cats needing to be rescued, that will be even better.

What would make a cat cafe a success?

I asked Sam and Samy some questions about the cat cafe business:

If you’re going to be in business, what kind of location would be a good place to set up? I assume the location should be safe from predators.

What would you advise people who want to open a cat cafe?

How important would it be to start a cat cafe in an area with a lot of foot traffic and where the population of people who live in the area who are interested in cat pets is high?

If you are going to open up a cat cafe, what is the main difference between a regular cat cafe and a cat cafe?

If you’re going to be in business, what kind of location would be a good place to set up?

Samy tells me that the only location that is available right now is in the garage of their apartment. While they can look for other locations, he says that this is the best location. It’s cheap, there is lots of foot traffic, and it is big enough for the cats to move around freely.

Samy and Sam both say that it is important. They need to be in an area where they can easily and safely serve the needs of cat owners. This means that they can serve cat lovers who live in the area, as well as travelers who come to the area.

They also need to be in an area where there is a lot of foot traffic. This means that it is important to be in an area with lots of businesses. They need customers, especially at times when the regular cafe is closed for a day or two.

How important would it be to start a cat cafe in an area with a lot of foot traffic and where the population of people who live in the area who are interested in cat pets is high?

It’s extremely important. Samy and Sam tell me that they are looking to expand into more areas, but they will have to be in a location that has a high foot traffic to ensure a steady and robust business.

If you are going to open up a cafe, the foot traffic needs to be high because, if the foot traffic is low, then they will not be able to serve their customers well. Also, they are going to have to put up with too much foot traffic on their premises in the cafe. They want customers to come in so they can easily serve them and, in the process, serve their pets.

It's extremely important. Samy and Sam tell me that they are looking to expand into more areas, but they will have to be in a location that has a high foot traffic to ensure a steady and robust business.

Samy and Sam both say that they would like to be in a location with a lot of foot traffic and a lot of cats living in the area. They want to be able to serve these cats, too.

How important would it be to start a cat cafe in an area with a lot of foot traffic and where the population of people who live in the area who are interested in cats, are in a higher percentage than other areas?

They plan on bringing cats from their home. One of the reasons why they're thinking about having a cat cafe is because they want to get more cats so they can raise them. They're going to rescue cats, they’re going to look for kittens in particular, and then they're going to take the kittens home and raise them in their own house, so they can have all of their own kitties around them.

Why do you need a license?

Samy and Sam want to open up a cat café in a city and want to have to give up a license for this location. The reason why they would want to give up a license is because they plan on getting all of their cats from shelters.

What type of cats would be suitable for a cat cafe?

Samy and Sam want to use cats that were rescued, or cats that are still living in a shelter. The cat cafes, and all other types of cafés, that exist right now use cats that are in great condition and they also have a very good life. For example, they get a lot of love and affection, and they have their own home.

A cat cafe would be a place where people could come and have their pets and cats' personalities played with. The cats will be free to come and go. Sam and Sam don’t plan on charging customers any money. The fee for a cat cafe would be more of a symbolic fee.
