Would it be dumb to invest somewhere other than vancouver?
ie. open up a timmies in alberta?
I'm sure it would be much cheaper to do something out there?

But, I guess you want to close to your investment?

Most likely Panago pizza or a small bubble tea place like bubble world.

I would open up a taco bell in Vancouver, the only one I know of is in coquitlam. Stoners alone will probably be enough to make loads of cash.

I went the one in Lynwood, WA in the summer. It was VERY disappointing. Everything you ate, from the bread they give you to the main courses, tasted like biting into a bag of salt every time.

At least I can tell people I've eaten there before but I won't be back any time soon.

I've been to that one a couple years ago and it wasn't that bad at all. The Canadian and American Red Lobsters are different tho so if one was to open in BC they would hae to use the Red Lobster Canada business model which is a whole lot healthier then the American ones.

Keep in mind that many franchises require you to have plenty of liquid assets before you will even be considered. Years ago before Krispy Kreme had come to Canada, I talked to an owner who told me you needed to have $20 million in liquid assets to ensure the business would not quickly open and close.

honestly, best bet might be smaller business and hard work.

If I was to start over, I could turn a $50k investment into a $250,000 company in 3 years.
