HospoSure: Fueling Confidence in Cafe Startups.

Published Date: June 27, 2023

Introducing HospoSure.

When developing our plans for Clever Cafe, we went all-in on research and delved deep into the cafe industry. We engaged in numerous conversations with established cafe owners, startups, accountants, and leading industry bodies. Simultaneously, we drew from our own experience and expertise. One significant insight that emerged was the strong desire among cafe owners for an unbiased, go-to hub and space that could help them improve their understanding of the numbers to assist with the sustainability of their businesses. Interestingly, startups consistently ranked planning, financial modelling, and financial management as top priorities. Everyone involved in the cafe entrepreneurship landscape seemed to express the need for a clear and straightforward roadmap—a platform to refine their financial and operational skills, all without needing to search Google just to decipher spreadsheets . We recognised that our coaching could provide valuable assistance to both established cafes and those taking their initial steps. However, we aspired to offer something more—a resource that could stand independently yet complement our coaching efforts seamlessly. This tool needed to be user-friendly and efficient, delivering significant value to their businesses by providing solid data and figures to inform their financial and operational choices. We also wanted to build a coaching portal so we could offer real-time support and feedback. Fulfilling this demand was no small feat, but we were resolute in our commitment to ensuring that Clever Cafe was comprehensive and encompassed everything a startup cafe would need, while also offering help to established operators looking to brush up on costing skills. Two years of development and hundreds of hours of testing followed, and finally HospoSure was born.

The combination of hindsight and foresight

Understanding the past financial performance of a business through balance sheets is important, but relying solely on historical data might not provide a complete picture of how to achieve success. To ensure future success, cafe businesses also need to focus on proactive planning, adapting to market changes, understanding customer needs, and making informed decisions based on both historical data and forward-looking strategies.

It’s a combination of hindsight and foresight that contributes to sustainable success.
