Hello everyone,

I’m currently pursuing my BA degree in Hospitality Entrepreneurship in Switzerland and would like to ask you for help with my last project at school, which is entitled “Understanding the coffee consumer in coffee shops across Switzerland – perceived value, behaviour and purchasing motivators”. It’s a short survey, which answered by Swiss residents will help me complete my studies. I would love if you help me out and fill it in!

You can access the survey through this link

Thank you!
