Hi there all CS'ers

I hope this is the right home for this topic was not sure where the appropriate place to put this thread was.

I am interested in buying a cafe this has been on my mind for a while now and it might also help other people like me looking to buy their first Cafe.

I have looked around myself and have heard from other cafe owners about their surprise when they take over the cafe they bought

Ballooned sales figures is a common theme amongst people I know.

The one that would have tricked me was someone I know bought a Cafe based on stock purchased example Coffee beans, milk, food related stuff to back their sales figures only to find out that they had another cafe which they would order extra coffee beans and food stuff on the one they were trying to sale to increase their proof of amount of coffee beans they would per week...

Have you encountered this yourself I would love to hear your story
