Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Lee Johns first fell for Cafe2U in Australia. He discovered the mobile coffee shop while in the country and knew it was a concept that would find success in the US. So, he obtained the rights to set up franchises in the US.

Earlier this year, Johns and the company’s Portland-based CEO traveled to Australia to learn how Cafe2U International conducts business and makes coffee. They returned with plenty of information — and the rights to set up Cafe2U franchises in the United States under an independent company.

Now the small core of employees working in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing are promoting opportunities to manage or own independent franchises, which Johns’ company oversees and markets.

They have already started operations in Bend and Riverside, Calif. Seattle and Portland are next. Visiting business parks and other places where many people can take breaks is encouraged.

In the next few months, Lee said he would like to open a training facility in Bend for all new American franchise owners, to avoid sending each one to Australia to learn the Cafe2U way. It’s possible the company could also open a more traditional coffee shop in Central Oregon.
