Default Pay-per-minute cafes are popular overseas...

These are becoming popular in Europe and the UK... I'm sure it's just a matter of time before someone tries it in the USA...

Could it be you?

The concept is this. People can come to your cafe. Food and beverages are all free! The catch?

You pay per minute.

It makes for a "freer" environment... No cafe staff "hovering" over you, wondering if you'll move after you've finished, to make way for others to come in. They don't care, because if you're there, you're paying.

But... that also makes for a more relaxing time for the patrons. They don't have to worry if they're "unwelcome" if they're there working on their laptop, or having a meeting, or chilling with friends. They can take as little or as much time as they like!

And yes... these cafes are profitable!

In the UK, customers pay around 4.80 an hour - that works out to $6.35 an hour at current exchange rates. Or a little over 10 cents a minute. In the USA, you'd have to adjust the prices according to the city (due to costs)... higher in San Francisco, less need for higher prices in Omaha...

There are no hot meals, but have the usual cafe selection of hot beverages, juice, cakes, cookies, toast, etc.

Sounds like a great idea to me!
