Internet cafes are a thing of the past with most restaurants and cafes now offer free Wi-Fi for anyone who uses the facilities, so opening up an internet café would not be a good idea. However gaming cafés are now being famous by the dominance of gaming throughout the world for the young and the old.
Things to consider when starting up
When you have decided to start the gaming café the first thing you should see is the building fit for a gaming café. There should be quite some room to put in at least 20 gaming computers with ample spacing for a single person seating. Next you will have to think of the pc hardware and what kind of budget you are willing to spend. The best choice would be go for the mid ranged gaming rigs so you wouldn’t spend your entire budget on the gaming rigs. Next you have to think about the heart and lungs of a gaming rig which is the processor and graphics card. The best option would be the new 6th generation Intel i5 6600k processors. These go toe to toe with the new i7 processors. Thinking about graphics cards the GTX 1060 or the ATI RX 480 should be your choice of graphic cards.
Food & drinks as a side business at the café
You can choose to have some food and drinks served up near the gaming PC Australia that kids will enjoy while they are playing. In normal circumstances, kids will not get up from their computers for hours while they are playi9ng and therefore serving food and drinks at the café would be an excellent idea and an excellent way to bring in money for your business. It is important that you focus on food that is easy to eat such as chips and veggie burgers that they can eat with one hand while playing. You could even choose to outsource the food and drinks to another café in your area so that it would reduce the work that you have to do. Choose to have generally healthy food so that you could encourage healthy eating among these kids who come in to play.
When selecting games to have at the café start with the free online MOBA games available like league of legends and DOTA 2. These games are free to play and there is a very big following and gamer teams playing these games. Once you have settled you could think of Call of duty games and other multiplayer games. Investing on a good fiber optical internet connection is a must.
