Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
If you are seriously contemplating launching a hospitality industry education business, it's essential that you learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, an entrepreneur who owns a hospitality industry education business in another town may be more than happy to give you a few tips, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.

Guidelines for a Hospitality Industry Education Business Acquisition
It's fairly common for hospitality industry education business entrepreneurs to gain entry through a business acquisition.
An acquisition isn't necessarily a bed of roses. You'll need to thoroughly evaluate the factors involved with buying a business. The first criteria to consider is whether the existing business can be adequately adapted to your business philosophy.
If the business is right for you, the assistance of a business broker will help all of the rest of the pieces of the process fall in place and you will be well on your way to owning a proven hospitality industry education business.
Is Franchising the Right Option?
Although branding is important for your startup's success, it takes time - time most startup small business owners simply don't have.
A franchised startup compensates for marketing and branding deficiencies, giving your business a highly recognizable brand presence from the outset of operations.
