Hi how is everyone? I am Tabatha, from Va. I am looking into opening a small business... I want to know things from other s.b. owners. I am in my research and planning stage! This is want I am looking at
Opening a Sub/Pizza delivery store.
question 1:) Would it better me to have eat in or only take out? I know there is a difference in the liscensing.
I want to have 2 full time employees and 2 part time after I have been opened a month. I feel this will be more than enough because, I currently run a carry out delivery only sub shop and I work 60-70 plus hours a week as store manager. I feel I already do the job so I should be doing it for myself.
2.)How much profit should I expect to make? (In General)
I would love any info you all could give me!!

I am new to forums. You might want to check with SBDC (Small Business Development Center) for help and get samples of biz plans done by restaurant owners that would show you step by step on what it takes to get your place.

Welcome Tabatha!

I agree--Small Business Organization is the place to start.

Hi Tabitha

Welcome to the forum. There are many small restaurants (doing well) that offer mainly takeout but have just a small place for people to eat in and I like that concept so either way you don't lose out. Most (small business owner) sandwich shops here in Houston have about two employees and a manager/owner. As for profit, I am sure you know you have to put in all expenses on the price to charge but I believe it is up to you what profit you need/want to make. I hope that helps. I am always observing small businesses and their marketing tactics so this is what I have experienced.

Linda ;)
