Hi guys I thought I would post this on these forums as everyone here is very well informed on the business world.
I am looking at getting into a business myself and we have settled on a microbrewery. We have done a significant amount of research into it and will be assisted by an already well established player. The question is we would be operating a business which wouldn't be under a franchise model and requires a large capital out lay 350-500k and staffing costs etc. The product itself is a relatively high mark up product at 80% which is soon eaten away at with costs and government excises.
The question I am posing to everyone here is if they where looking into operating a business like this what questions would they ask and where would they go for additional info. I feel I have an acceptable amount of research on the topic but I feel discussing this in an open forum could allow me to see a much larger picture from a well educated audience.
Any of your advice tips on positives/negatives would be very appreciated
