hello all!
i am seeking advice, thoughts, information, research, anything.
i live in a small town, but would love to open a little shop in which i sell gluten free food items that kroger and walmart dont carry, and serve meals. not a huge restaurant, just a little place with like 6 tables for 4. different menu daily.
what are your thoughts on this?

Check out this place. It's near Albany, NY and it's a 100% gluten-free Bakery and Cafe. Fortunately, work takes me past there once a week or so during the summer. http://www.sherrylynnsglutenfree.net/

Where are you located? I have no suggestions, but I would frequent a cafe like what you are describing.

It's a wonderful idea.

I think that sort of thing will be replacing Starbucks in the next Century.

If I were a bit more recovered I might have such ambitions.

I think you should go for it.

You would need to write a business plan and you could look into small business loans for women and minorities.

I don't have experience, I just know women who have qualified for small business loans and started their businesses this way.

Best of luck
