Take a Look at the Competition

Before you open up shop, make sure you know what you will offer to your customers that provides a significant advantage over your competition's offering.
Learning More About the Industry
After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's a wise move to speak with somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. What's in it for them?
However, an entrepreneur who owns a liquor license consultants business in a different city can be a great learning resource for you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. Many business owners are happy to give advice to new entrepreneurs. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
