Re: Throwing around the idea of creating a hookah lounge
I found a link some time ago, where you can get a complete "turnkey" operation. You get a complete business plan, and a CD with tips and hints,etc. I too, have considered opening a hookah lounge in Northern VA as a retirement business.
I have also considered opening a "hookah catering" business, where I would have half a dozen hookahs, and tobacco/coals etc, and have the whole operation in my van. I would cater hookah parties in private homes for $300 a night. provide all hookahs and supplies, and even the Arabian music. it would be a way to 'stick your toe in the water' and not have to come up with $35k.
