Also the $2170 how much tobacco will you get, as im sure you will need at least 20kilos to start of with.
Have you found a location yet sa goodwill might be a bit more, i should now, as i had a plan to open a lounge up in london and bugdet was £20k but after more reasearch i found i need at leas £40.
Also i dont know bout US, but in the UK landlords want at least 6 months rent in advance
I understand that buying from a wholesaler would be a lot cheaper, we only based our prices as if we were just normal customers buying in bulk. We planned on 1KG of each flavor as a base, 2KG for popular flavors such as Starbuzz Bluemist and X on the Beach. Roughly we have about 28-30KG of shisha all together for start up. We have a general idea for a business location, and we took an average price and based things off of that, roughly $2750 a month for 1500sq/f (Would that be a decent size to start off?) -- Thanks for all the responses, lets us run our ideas with each other and re-plan if needed.
