I was thinking of somewhere big in Florida, so maybe Orlando or somewhere in Seminole county. Just looking for the best atmosphere and hopefully kick up some things in the process. Im really hoping i can start up the shop before the end of this year, and when i do ill host a coupon on here for 50% off for all my mylot fans, but yeah i cant wait. if anyone has any ideas or suggestions im very open to ideas, currently i have a gaming room in plans and my 24hr shop.

Sounds really great, id love to come visit your place (pizzeria) when it opens even if i live on the wrong side of the Atlantic ocean. You have some really sweet ideas there, just be prepared that it can take some sweat and hard work to get it going. If you can handle to start up with a gaming room and a shop, then do it but firts think out if you can handle it, probably you will need to hire people from the start and that needs to be accounted for in your start up budget. My advice to you is to get a friend to help you with the paperwork, and/or also to hire some company to help you do it also. Feels like there will be alot of paperwork and it would be boring if you had do deal alot with that, instead of taking care of your business. But if you do that, you have to to sit down a day and go through all the stuff written down, and se that there's no wrong stuff, if there is a mistake you will probably be held responsable so doublechecking stuff is always good.

We have a ton of pizza shops around us putting flyers on our door. They have all been up and running and showing no sign of closing in the year that we have been here. That must say nothing for the business you can do. We looked into a Little Caesars franchise and the cost was prohibitive. If you have access to some decent priced ovens, that would be great. Tell me you are going to use a fantastic real cheese combo on your pizza - the cheese and crust determine where we buy our pizza. A really nice shop close by just changed their cheese - Yuck! Must be imitation now.

me and my friend are opening the store so its not going to be so bad. Also all my merchandise is comming frome New York so all the best is comming down, i have been putting money away for years and i have couple thousand, so it wont be that hard to start the shop. and i have connections up in new york so it wont cost me that much for the stuff.

The franchise and shop opening costs I'm talking about were upwards of $100,000 to open. I'm relieved to hear you have some great connections for your stuff. The idea of having gaming has it pros and cons to me. Will the gamers be playing free, will they actually be buying enough of your product to support the idea of having it there? Will the presence of gamers discourage other clientele or are the gamers your marketing group? I wish you so much luck. I love love love a good pizza and will look forward to hearing more about your oepration.

I think it's a great idea. but the restaurant business is tuff. My girlfriend has her own pizza joint and she has to work so hard to keep it a float.

I think it's a good idea. Pizza is a popular food and it's also somewhat expensive. As long as your pizzas are delicious and the price is reasonable, you will have good profit from it.

Cool! Next to coffee shops, I'd say pizza shops come in next when it comes to demand. But since there are lots of pizza shops around today (well, I'm not so sure there, but at least here there really are A LOT haha) so I guess it would be great if you could come up with a fresh and fun concept for your shop. Aww.. thinking about pizza sure made me hungry! Haha. Good luck!

Haha yeah, well the fresh concept is the 24hr open and we are going to have a inside lan gaming, and a theater, but the theater will come later, we have the systems to do the laning and the tv's to do it with, but all we need is the license and the shop, all the other concepts are already figured out. but yeah once i get my shop up and running i cant wait to host it up on this site.

I think that would be good as long as you are in a big city or town where you know for sure its going to do well. I know many times where I wanted a pizza at 3:00am. good luck and let us know how you do.

I think if you opened it in a fairly big town people like me and my friends might order when the clubs close or having a late night party. I had a friend whose mom owned a shop and he had the key and after the club closed he'd open it up and make pizza for all of us.boy it was the best!

people will always need pizza so opening a shop doesnt sound bad. At all hours of the day i dont really think itll be that efficeint. When u consider all the places that are open 24 hours its really only things people need at the middle of the night. Places like convient stores. Unless u open in the middle of a city filled the clubs i think youre better of with regular pizaa shop.

I think that's a great idea. But you need to find the best place to put up your business. Good luck

I think it is a good idea, just make sure you are in right location, do demographic studies and study how much business your competitors are doing. Is it an area where you will have enough business? The economy sucks right now and small businesses are suffering Good luck

I think it is a great idea. Make sure my pizza is nice and hot when you deliver it at 7am. I can have hot pizza for breakfast instead of cold. hahaha
