Locating

Figuring out where your business will operate is a critical step in getting your business off the ground. Look here to find a neighborhood and building to house your business.

Do Your Research

  • It will also be important to research the neighborhood in which your business will be located, since those living near your business may become some of its first customers. The average age, income, and family size of a neighborhood can all influence how appropriate it would be to locate your business in certain places.
