start up a pizza place in the usa.

i am still in europe . debating to wether or not to come back and open up in the us a small pizza artisan location. specifically az or nevada because ot the climate. my partner needs dry and sunny.
anyway. i realize what is happening in the us with economy. and the spending cutting back.
being so far at the present time , and wanting to have some feedback from the pizza business.
would you be kind enough to tell me what you know in details .
i talked to you in the past. and i did appreciate greatly your help. thanks
