Default Anyone interested in opening a BrewPub - East of DFW

I know the market is ripe for a nice little brewpub in my town - Rockwall, TX. I just need some partners to help me get something started!

I live in Rowlett and my Inlaws are in Rockwall. I would volunteer time if you started something. Sounds like fun!

No money to burn here unfortunatley. But my brother lives in Rowlett and I'm over there a lot so we would at least give patronage. Good luck! If you find investors, point them my way for the pub I want to open in McKinney!

I am a decent cook (I do all the cooking for my wife) too.

What kind of pub food were you thinking?

How do you "know" the market is ripe?

A lot of nice sub divisions out here east of Dallas.

Here is your biggest most gigantic problem.

The

Flying

Saucer

I mean, its RIGHT THERE offa i30. If there was no Flying Saucer there the market would be even better. They would be a big competitor.

However, if you rented space on The Harbor, like next to Glorias that might get a lot of business.

I'd like to say I've done my due diligence and market surveys; but really I just "have a hunch" that a nice little brew pub is going to pop up here and be a hit; and I'm going to kick myself for sitting on my hands!

I have heard the reason for the vacancies in the harbor is due to extraordinarily expensive rent, but I have no first hand knowledge.

I was thinking of a much smaller scale, like a small shop in the square, i.e a "nano" brewery.

I know nothing about the restaurant business; I was hoping to find a partner that has experience in that arena. I believe there are some rules about food income vs. alcohol income; but haven't nailed that part down yet.
