Have Some Experience
You must have some prior experience in order to have a strong case for getting the franchise. Although it may not be required by Starbucks, it is important that you know how to deal with such a business successfully. It is crucial that you make a strong case for your application to be accepted.
Learn the requirements that are put forth by Starbucks in order to give the franchise. These will be available from their corporate offices as well as their website. Understand these requirements and make sure that you can meet them.
You will need to pay a fee for the franchise in order to get it. You should have this amount available in some form. In case they allow the payment in instalments, you should have the money required initially to get the franchise.
You will need to have a retail space that can host the Starbucks coffee shop. It should meet the minimum standards put forth by the company. Make sure that the space meets all the safety requirements.
Once you are in the process of acquiring the franchise, you will be trained by the company in order to be able to run business as per the company standards. You will also need to hire people and train them in order to make sure that you are not short on staff once the store gets going.
