Location is always a consideration as well. Most businesses rely on foot traffic and those that have street front also benefit from the ongoing signage exposure to the public. But when you are serving six to ten people at a time and the adventure is by appointment then you have more flexibility as to your location. You also have more control over the tone you want to set.
The one requirement I made for myself was that this enterprise was to be in downtown Tacoma. Close to hotels and restaurants and people, but just off the street enough to be a bit mysterious.
I am no expert. Commercial space is not my forte. I needed help from someone or something. I am extremely excited to announce that I am a participant in the Spaceworks program.
We have identified a location that I think is perfect. I'll need to wait for approval but if it works out, I am going to give details about it here.
