    Hi,

    I'm currently looking at a shop for rent in Great Yarmouth.

    It's a great location but i'm at a loss as to what to do with it.. It's in a row of shops (subway, burger bar, fish and chips, gift/beach shop and a coffee shop)

    ^^^ This idea looks OK?

    Anyone full of ideas, or experience of doing something like this themselves?

    There's a shop very similar to that in York, and they do quite well afaik. Every time I've ever been past it's been full.

    I suggest sea side sushi though :coma:

    Yeah, and how much is the startup fees they require? Most franchises require at least a certain amount 'in the bank' so to speak.
