Are you thinking of doing this full time, or on the side?
Will it be your main source of income?
I would plan on, and strive to provide an experiene like no other field does. I want people to plan a day around coming to my facility. I want to get people to drive an hour, hour and a half. Leading to the next point.
45 minutes away, there would be Toledo; metro population of nearly 700k. 1 hour away, there would be Cleveland; metro population of over 2m.
It would be full time and my main source of income once it opened. I'd hope to get it down to a part time thing for me. Essentially have a field manager, who would carry most of the weight. Is that a plausible happening?
Thanks, trying to research and gather as much information as I can before I get serious about it.
