Reading B1: My business

Hi there! I want to share the story of how I started my own café. It was an exciting journey that required hard work and dedication.

A few years ago, I had a dream of running a café where people could come together to enjoy delicious food and drinks in a cozy atmosphere. I had always loved cooking and baking, so I decided to turn my passion into a business.

First, I created a business plan. It included details about the type of café I wanted, the menu with various snacks and beverages, and how I would manage the finances. This plan helped me stay organized and focused on my goals.


Next, I searched for the perfect location. After visiting several places, I found a charming spot in the heart of the city. It had a lovely patio where customers could sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

Then came the exciting part of decorating the café. I chose warm colors and comfortable furniture to make it feel welcoming. I also added some artwork on the walls to create a pleasant ambiance.

Once everything was set up, it was time to hire staff. I wanted to create a friendly and efficient team, so I carefully interviewed candidates who shared my passion for providing great customer service.

On the opening day, I felt a mix of nervousness and excitement. To my surprise, many people showed up to support the new café in town. They loved the homemade pastries and the variety of coffee options.

As the days went by, the café became a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. I was thrilled to see people enjoying their time, chatting with friends, or working on their laptops while sipping a cup of coffee.

To keep the business thriving, I regularly updated the menu and introduced seasonal specials. I also listened to customer feedback to ensure their satisfaction and to improve the café’s offerings.

Over time, the café became more than just a business; it became a place where people connected, celebrated special occasions, and created fond memories.

Running a café was not always easy, but it was a rewarding experience. I learned valuable lessons about managing a business and working with a team. It also brought me closer to the community and allowed me to pursue my passion.

So, if you have a dream and a passion, don’t be afraid to turn it into your own business adventure. With determination and hard work, you can make your dreams come true too!
