What would you do????
Went to a chamber of commerce lunch where we received our plaque for becoming a member. We got to advertise our catering business and tell a little about our awards from competitions this season.Made some good contacts and was able to pass out our business card
At the end the manager of the golf course/country club talked with my wife and me and told us that he has no one in his restaurant and would love to get something in it.
Long and short of it he's offering the restaurant with all equipment and materials it has, its pretty much ready to go and do business, plus they would run the bar and give us a percentage of the sales from the restaurant. He wanting a $1000 a month for the lease of it but said it could be negotiated with the board so they can get something in the club..
Here is my dilemma, I'm looking at another 6 years and I can retire. But I don't want to pass up a good opportunity either. I was thinking of seeing if it’s something we could do a couple of weekends a month to see how it goes and go from there, If it takes off I may have to rethink retirement.
But I figure it being a country club on a golf course it should do fairly well...
Any thoughts, suggestions and advice you have would be appreciated, were looking at scheduling a meeting with them within a few days!
