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 want to open a containers industrial business the next step is to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
But, a person who owns a containers industrial business on the other side of the country can be a great learning resource for you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. If you are persistent, you can find a business mentor who is willing to help you out.
Where do you find an owner of a containers industrial business outside of your area who is willing to talk?

Acquired Containers Industrial Businesses: Competitive Advantages
By acquiring an existing containers industrial business, you'll put yourself in a better position with lenders and investors than if you tried to fund a startup.
A business acquisition also delivers an established brand - a big advantage in competitive markets. In fact, many entrepreneurs pursue acquisitions for the primary purpose of buying an established brand.
Since your containers industrial business's ability to compete is largely indexed to your brand reputation, an acquisition strategy significantly condenses the amount of time it will take for your business to become a competitive threat.
Consider Buying a Franchise
