Dunkin Donuts offer freshly made breakfast items and pastries, and hopefully a friendly atmosphere. Prices will vary between items purchased. The only consistent thing between our two craft stores would be what that physical item could be and the size of it. For my coffee shop and the other two I would prefer to only offer two sizes of beverage versus three sizes. All three business have been around for a while. The Country Store has been in business since 2003, Starbucks since 1971, and Dunkin Donuts since 1950, so all three business are well established in their market. Some potential suppliers for our craft store would be Lowes to purchase wood and other needed hardware, A.C. Moore and Michaels to purchase yarn, paint and other personal crafting materials. I use A.C.Moore and Michaels to create my items prior to selling, but once our physical store is getting ready to open I would find wholesale buyers to gather our supplies needed. Their customer ratings are good because they are well established chain department stores across America.
