In case the expansion is planned with a large scale renovation to the store with a lengthier menu to chose, additional furniture, shelves and interior design, expansion costs may range from $40000 to $80000.

Material cost for the preparation is lower than twenty five percent of the sale price (Plan A: The small, bookstore-owned coffee bar 2002).
