- What is CHAIKA business
CHAIKA – is a café, tea room and vegan bakery. It’s special atmosphere filled with jazz, cosines, laughter, chatting and colorful retro interior. There you can drink a cup of freshly roasted coffee or one of many original teas, have a piece of vegan cake or delicious hot sandwich. We have sweets and snacks for every life occasion!
At the moment there is one café operating in the center of Vilnius and a production shop more remote (to save on lending money).
CHAIKA business is providing people with good interesting and high quality drinks, cakes and snacks, suitable for various eating diets, for example: vegetarian, vegan, gluten free. Under the CHAIKA brand we have our own drinks recipes, our own vegan cakes and snacks recipes, line of 10 kinds of tea blends for house use including our famous blue tea with cinnamon. Having own production line as well as drink selection it allows us to maintain a high quality and create a higher added value. Another source of revenue is sales of whole cakes – getting orders and preparing cakes for special occasions: birthdays, parties, corporate meetings and many more. Moreover, we collaborate with small local suppliers to have a unique, nice and healthy goods at our shop.
CHAIKA does not need large premises as 20/30% of sales are for take away. For a cozy café without production it is possible to have premises from 40 up to 70 square meters. If opening CHAIKA with a production shop, you should add at least 30-40 square meters of premises. It depends on scale of production – if you want to open 2-5 cafes, production shop should be at least 100 sq. m. big.
CHAIKA’s products are quite exclusive, so it is not necessary to have a café in the very center of a city or a super market. Our clients are tend to take a short step sideways to come to CHAIKA. Not too far of course.
