Somebody come to Nebraska and kick me in the nads for even thinking like this so early in my "BBQ Career", but I may have the chance to get into a building for ..Get this..$250/month rent + utils. 800 ft/sq. Off of the main business district here in Cozad. I have most of the equipment I need with the exception of a commercial smoker.
I plan to look at the place later in the week, and make an evaluation with the local HD inspector (Whom I have a fantastic relationship with) to see what I would need to do.
Not 100% sure yet, still some financial and other things to consider.
Am I farkin' stupid here?? Right now, I'm feeling overwhelmed. Seems after a year (finally) things may be falling into place for Family Tradition Barbecue.
Wow, commercial property here is $16 per square foot. Your space would be $10k a month here.
