How to make sugarcane juice:
- You will have to wash the sugarcane well before making juice. You can also peel off the sugarcane then or even without peeling you can put them into the machine.
- Start the machine after putting sugarcane in it. You can put 3 to 5 sugarcanes at a time in the machine.
- The juice will come out automatically after putting sugarcanes in the machine.
- You can put lemon, peppermint and ginger in the machine along with sugarcanes or also after the juice is extracted. Then add salt and ice in the juice.
You can sell one glass of juice at Rs 5, Rs 10 and Rs 15. You can also increase the price of the juice during summers. But if someone near you is selling juice at low price then you should also sell it at lower price.
Select any crowded area like market, near schools or colleges as they are always crowded with people and you can easily earn here and earn profits.
How to earn sugarcane juice business?
Open your own shop: you can start this business in two ways. Either you can rent a shop and place your machine and other stuff in that shop and start making and selling juice there.
Street vendor ship: you can set up a stall on roadside and sell juice through it. You will easily get variety of stalls in the market. Get the machine installed on the stall and make sure that there is a proper space below the stall to keep the sugarcanes.
Which method out of these two is more profitable?
If you go for a shop then it is more profitable as you will not need to change the place again and again. You can also gain loyal customers.
You will have to pay the rent monthly for the shop you rent. The rent depends on the location of your shop. If you take up a shop near the market area then it can be costly whereas if you take it at a less crowded place then it can be cheap.
If you put up a stall then you are not required to pay any rent. You will have to take permission from municipality of your area to set up your stall at one place. But if you don’t set up your stall at any one place then you are not required to take any permission.
- To clean the sugarcanes, take money from people and for cleaning the glasses you will require one or two people.
- If you open your own shop and start this business then you will definitely require people. If you don’t have the budget to keep employees then you can take help of your family members.
- If you put up a stall too then also you will need a helper. But if you cannot afford any helper then you will have to do everything yourself.
Important things to remember:
- There are lots of flies near sugarcane juice, so you should make sure that flies stay away from your shop or stall.
- You should keep in mind the hygiene factor while extracting juice. A little bit of carelessness can be hazardous for people’s health and dangerous for your business.
- Keep the surroundings of you shop or stall clean as if they are not clean then people will avoid coming to you.
- Use only clean water to clean the glasses. If the glasses would not be clean then people will not drink juice from your shop.
- Purchase only fresh sugarcanes from the market as those who are not fresh will not have much juice in them and it will take more sugarcane to make 1 glass of juice.
- Keep plastic glasses also in you shop/stall as many people like to drink through it and also get it packed. So get materials to pack the juice.
