    can you afford it if it doesnt work out?

    My opinion, too risky at the moment.

    ur food good? the price right? location right? then u shud be ok

    People will always need to eat and if you get a good rep they'll keep coming back. If I lived nearer I'd sit in and eat all day lol :thumbsup:

    None of my local takeaways have suffered, some busier

    Are there a lot of takeways in your area?

    In my area there are about 15 takeaways in a miles radius of my house and I don't even live in the city centre.

    In my area your business would fail miseribly so if you do decide to go ahead with opening a takeaway make sure you do A LOT of market research before you jump in with 2 feet.

    TBH I don't think this is the best time to be starting a new business of any kind.

    Not in the area... the plan is to get flyers out there letting people know we are open... the prison is close, and there are lots of offices near by too.... :whistling:

    We are going to be doing function catering, and office deliveries too...

    So are you gonna open up your own take-away place?

    Sure ppl are spending less in the current climate - but we all still buy food from our usual places.
