Danni Warren first discovered Cafe2U when doing some research into her own business ideas. “I actually came across Cafe2U when looking at ideas on the internet for my next career move,” she says. “I was aware of franchising but didn’t realise the scope until I started looking on the internet.”
Danni was previously a cricket development officer for Middlesex Cricket Club, encouraging girls and women into cricket bringing them through from the grass roots up to county level.
Cafe2U was a complete change in direction for Danni, who explains: “I chose a franchise instead of going it alone as mainly for the support but also for the knowledge. The established business plan helps get your business up and running quickly compared with starting on your own.”
When looking into starting any new business it’s really important to do your research. Danni’s advice to anyone thinking of buying a franchise is: “You never know until you give it a go but take the guess work out by looking at a trusted business model that you can adapt in your own way”.
Danni operates her franchise in the north of Watford and loves being her own boss: “You can do what you want and you know the extra hours you put in are for your own benefit.” She has set herself goals to keep growing the day to day business and her events database too – but still makes sure she has time to play the odd game of cricket herself!
