Another 'want to open a field' thread. Capital and misc questions
What kind of capital did you have when you opened your field and what was the over all cost and was it worth the return?
I'm aiming at 500-700 on opening cost, my capital is about 150 in pocket right now so I'm trying to wait another 6months to a year to build up to at least 300 before even looking at breaking any kind of ground.
I want an indoor facility, trying to do this right and not have some hole in the wall.
I want to add a small arcade into the place so I can have it open on weekdays after school hours. Still coming up with other ideas on how to make this a more well rounded facility that can bring in revenue on weekdays as well.
Open to all ideas.
Ex Military, SOF.
Been into paintball for quite a while, started playing back in 95. Worked at a field in 99 and ran a medical complex in the military that had a paintball field. I was in charge of the field itself, keeping it well supplied, maintained, creating scenarios, dealing with the vendors, etc, etc.
It was an outdoor field but I left in the middle of construction of our indoor field. Our set up wasn't recreational, we had a mock city built up that we played in. The whole course was about 2km long, great times were had there. completely irrelevant, if you read this far I've wasted about 2 minutes of your time with this last paragraph but please feel free to answer the questions.
