Default Next for txschutte? Brick and Mortar?

My ultimate dream for my BBQ passion is to own a takeout BBQ/BBQ Supply shop. Small and manageable.

I have been doing fair with the trailer, but the taco wagons are just about killing me here.

Next step: A real Store.

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.

Larry, I am cautiously giddy right now. Making sure it's the right thing to do before I jump in.

Mrs tx is supporting me anyway I need it right now. Right now vending/catering is working out because I do all the work and she works the book!

I agree with Larry, this is an incredibly stupid idea, but, I mean that in a totally supportive way.

At some point, you either reach for your dream, or give up and get a real job.

Wow, commercial property here is $16 per square foot. Your space would be $10k a month here.

I have a real job. Pays well. That's why I'm keeping it until BBQ makes me more than Project Supervisor does.

It's more than money now though. It's having something else that I can't explain, but you know what I mean.

Incidentally, I have worked in the food industry as a cook/busser/bottle washer and I have been a business owner for over 23 of my 26 year working life as a landscape architect, it has been worth it to me, even when times were lean.

Yes I do know, very well. Doesn't mean working for your son will be easy.
