    as I've mentioned on someone else's thread, I have my online clothing business. Online business is doing good but I'm also thinking of starting another business in my hometown. Since it's a province, most people would want to go to the market and cook their own meals so I don't think a restaurant isn't really a good option. any suggestions?
    :confused:

    You don't think a restaurant isn't really a good option? Just to be clear, you're suggesting it would be better to open a restaurant rather than another online business? If that's the case then yes, I agree if you're starting a food business dealing online probably isn't the way to go. Selling direct to your customers sound like the preferable choice.

    Unfortunately once again I'm not entirely sure if I've understood your initial post, so please elaborate a little? :)

    From what i understand you want to start a restaurant in your hometown but you feel being a small town people would not prefer it?

    I that case i would say you need to assess the demand. Is there any restaurant already present? If yes, how is it going? If not, then you have a chance. You just need to give people what they want. Many people would want to go to a restaurant over the weekends or to celebrate and you can could cash in on that.

    First you find answers to these questions and then decide.

    Thanks for the suggestion, guys. and for Rocky, yes, I think I'm going to do a case study before planning on whether opening up a restaurant or something else. :)

    If I have to chose I'd probably go for the restaurant. People eat from time to time, its a necessity so I think its much profitable.

    How about running classes to teach others in your hometown how to be successful online?

    You know people go to market and buy foods to cook. Then why waste your money on that. It's matter you open a new fresh small market to sell the food products nearby. So, it will be easy for the people around you to buy foods / vegetables. You will also have some regular customers.

    Actually, you have already seen the available business opportunities in your small town, but you're unable to process it properly.
    If you think people prefer to cook for themselves, then why why don't you try to open a supermarket. I think it would be more useful because in a small town it is difficult to get different kinds of food.
