I... Suppose this is where this should go?


Here's the deal, /ot/.

Considering the frightening lack of maid cafes in the West, I've decided to try opening up my own maid cafe.

However, I need to see if such an option is actually financially viable, first. I get the feeling my results will be skewed asking here... But it's not like this fits anywhere else.

  1. Gender
  2. Age
  3. Nearest large city
  4. If a maid cafe opened in your area, would you be willing to visit it on a regular basis?
  5. If a maid cafe opened in your area, would you be willing to WORK in it as a maid/butler?

  5. If I could crossdress yeah. Definitely. Something tells me I'd be really popular too. :3

Old enough to buy booze, young enough to enjoy it
Seattle/Portland are the largest ones nearby
Possibly, if it's tasteful and serves good stuff at affordable prices.
If it pays well, sure. Might be fun.

I have a feeling this could either be extremely successful or going broke within the first year.

kinda depends how the (local) media would react to it. anyone working/visiting there can be certain to be stigmatized by pompous assholes. if those happen to be working for a newspaper or similar and publishes a vitriol filled piece you can be certain of quite some interest.

personally, would I pay 8 dollars/euros per cup of coffee to look at waitresses in a maid outfit? (in addition to looking like a fool and knowing said waitresses will be disgusted by every single man walking in anyway)
naw, not really.

One would think he would use more regular prices: Japanese maid cafes can charge so much because they know they'll get a sale. An American maid cafe will have to make much more effort to prove itself as a legit and profitable business, which means excellent service, comfortable surroundings, and good, affordable food.

>> No.13394   [Delete]   [Edit]

Part of the problem is of course the maid outfits themselves, the only places you see in the west with more than a company shirt/jacket are places which actually sell clothes; which is simply the employers letting their employees get cheap suits etc which they have incentive to buy anyway.

Additionally; the simpler and less expentive your maid outfit the more it'll look like you bought the cheap fettishist outfit from the nearest Ann Summer's; where as the fancier and more practical it is the more it'll cost and the more we're relying on novelty customers or elitist maid fans. Not to mention the more it is closer to the first extreme the more likely you are to get negative press attension.

Basically if you want to look like a legit business then your starting expenses are going to be very high!

  1. Male.
  2. Derp.
  3. Changes monthly.
  4. If I could smoke.
  5. Yeah, totally.

This is something that could likely work in NYC proper due to the market for anything existing there. This however is such a niche market that I wouldn't go into it without the experience and savvy of somebody who has set up multiple successful independent restaurants and very few busts. That should really go without saying.
