The purpose of this research is to explore the relationships among service quality’s five factors(i.e., tangibles, reliability, responsiveness, empathy, and assurance) and customer satisfaction. The study used convenience sampling and selected certain consumers who visited coffee shop in BeiJing, China. Total 300 questionnaires was distributed and 18 unsuitable data were excluded for data analysis. These data were tested using SPSS 21.0. The results of this study are summarized as follows. First, the result of the relationship between coffee shops’service quality and customer satisfaction reveals that two of 5 service quality factors (i.e., assurance and empathy) had a positive effect on customer satisfaction only, and other service quality factors (i.e., tangibles, reliability, and responsiveness) had no positive influence on customer satisfaction. Limitations and future research directions of the study were also discussed.
