OK, so here's the deal. I have ZERO experience in the pizza business. I do have food service experience (owned a 2 location frozen yogurt shop). My entire experience in the pizza world is that I love to eat all kinds of pizza Now, here's the scoop. Small town (25k people). 3 "cheap" chains (Zanzi's, Dominoes, Little Ceasar's). 1 overpriced chain (Donato's) and a high priced (but good) local chain (Cristy's). There is not a NY style pizza shop in a 30 mile radius. I have an opportunity that came out of left field 4 days ago to lease a space that has had a continuously operating pizza joint in it for 12 years. I can get the space as well as all the equipment in it for $1k/mo. Obviously, if I pull the trigger I'm gonna be learning on the fly. I currently own 2 other businesses, and would be able to run the business side of things, but my presence would be limited to 15-20 hours/week. The shop that was in the space was doing $250k/yr give or take as a carryout only place. So, my vision is NY style pizza, with the house specialties all having a southern twist. We would also stock a wide variety of craft beers and ciders (bottled/sealed only). Looking at everything, and all the research I've done in the last 72 hours leads me to believe that it would take a disaster on the level of a meteor to not at least break even. Making a profit right out of the gate seems likely. So, since all of you have, literally, an infinite amount more experience than I do - tell me what I'm missing.
