5 Things to Remember When Adding Locations to Your Business When adding a location to your business you need to choose a place that matches your expectations. In short you must have the true picture of the place. However having that picture can be difficult especially when you are inexperienced. Here are five things you should consider before adding a business location. The Population of the Place View the population in two dimensions. First know your customers and their proximity to the proposed location. Second the community profile must match your expectations. Consider the economic situation and the general business environment in the community. Accessibility Determine how accessible the place is for staff customers and suppliers. Examine the traffic flow within the area and the available parking lots. Determine whether the place is suitable for people with disabilities. The place should also make it easy for the suppliers to transport products to the business premises. Competition Determine whether your competitors operate in the same place. Moving to a place that has multiple competitors is not healthy because they can make marketing tough. However it can be a good thing in situations with comparison shopping as you can benefit from the customer overflow associated with such setups. Local Laws Local laws can affect how you operate in the future. Get to know the location laws and zoning restrictions. When it comes to zoning restrictions understand the location and where your business would fit in. You don’t want to set your day care center next to a liquor store. Don’t forget to consult your lawyer to determine other crucial regulations that could affect your business such as tax implications and registration. Capital Sit down with a financial analyst and engage him or her thoroughly to help you determine the amount of capital required for the new investment. He or she will also help you with the logistics and identify possible hidden costs that could arise when you move to a different location. After the analysis they will advise you on the right step to take. Many of them will refer you to lending institutions that will best suit your financial plans.
