Agree with everyone on this, Run away.

Even if they could supply detailed financials, I’d still be extremely cautious. Running a cafe is probably the hardest small business in the world and will require pretty much all your awake hours every day.

As for running a cafe in general, you will most likely work with reduced staff for the first year or few, to help reduce the wage burden. So be prepared to work incredibly long days, have absolutely no social life and spend any free time you have sleeping!

And you’re paying for the “privilege” to do this?
This is the closest thing to insanity or self harm there is.

Check out the alternatives first if it’s financial rewards you are after.
