Start coffee shop business in South Africa
I’m planing to start small business (coffee restaurant) in South Africa (Cape Town).
I heard that I need to invest about R5mil to get business permit to work in my business. But also I read somewhere that I no need this money to start some kind of businesses (like IT). Is that works for coffee shops, etc?
To start coffee shop and hire employees I just need about R300000 (quick business plan).
Dear Vadim C, the best way to settle the issue is to approach the local Burroughs or Municipality and establish from the exactly what permits you require to start your business as each municipality or Burroughs has their own bylaws that they promulgate in this regard.
