Good luck with your endeavors. It's seems to me like the first year going is the hardest year of all. After the first year is done with, you can take your results to a bank and prove to them that this business venture is actually profitable. Going to a bank with no proof or experience makes it a lttle hard to show them that this can make money. 06 was my first year running after working on this for about 6 years. I'm not in a huge city, but I absolutely blew my expectations out of the water. I've been dealing with my bank on this for a while, keeping them informed on my progress. When I showed them results of my first year and my profits, they are almost asking me how much I want to borrow now.
Just stay on your game. There will most likely come a time where yall think "Why did I get myself into this". Just dont give up, and you will be so overjoyed once you finally get one going.
