Don't Overlook Competitors
Long before you open a gas fitters business in your town, it's a smart move to determine how strong the competition is. We've provided the link below to help you get a list of local competitors nearby. After clicking on the link, type in your city, state and zip code to get a list of gas fitters businesses near you.
If there's too much competition, it may be wise to consider starting the business in a less competitive marketplace.
Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
If you are seriously contemplating launching a gas fitters business, it's a wise move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby gas fitters businesses will give you advice, think again. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
Fortunately, somebody who runs a gas fitters business outside of your community may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.

Advantages of Buying an Established Gas Fitters Business
It's no secret that entrepreneurs have a strong impulse to build companies from the ground up.
But from a business and financial perspective, it may make more sense to leverage an existing gas fitters business as your vehicle for world domination.
Existing gas fitters businesses are proven operations with dependable revenue streams. And that's not to mention the fact that a purchase let's you avoid the trial-and-error mistakes that are common in startups.
Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option
As an entrepreneur, your chances being a successful business owner increase if you go the franchising route and benefit from the prior work of others and their lessons learned.
