Default Scam or Helpful - hookahbarblueprint.com

hookahbarblueprint.com

is a website I found cruising the net. As I mentioned in a previous post I've been thinking about opening up my own lounge and I'm wondering if anyone has dealt with these guys before. What there offering is a prepackaged business plan for hookah bars.

Has anyone here heard of or dealt with these guys before. I can't find any reviews or info other than the main site, so I'm a little suspicious.

Your advice, wise hookah masters, is as always appreciated.


Thanks

Hi,
First off never buy any e-books, they're usually scams where people pull info off of a site and market it as their own.
The best way to start up a hookah bar would be to get a business license, tax i.d. number, and a tobacco license. You then can call various hookah wholesale companies and verify place orders for the hookahs (so that they're a little bit cheaper than what you'd pay for a single hookah). Most of the companies you would deal with would probably give you the full detail on what you will need to start the hookah bar. Honestly i'd just scour the net for whatever you can find.

First off I'd like to say my dog shares your name, second I'd like to say is that you are absolutely correct, but wonderland has more information to add to this really.

Biggest part of opening a lounge is having tons of money saved because you should not expect to make money for a year.

I wouldn't rely on an e-book to start any sort of business - especially one that involves as much red tape as a hookah lounge would (same applies to bars/clubs that serve liquor). I would highly recommend consulting with a business attorney and a CPA as your first course of action.

Precisely! When my father and I opened a printing company a few years ago we were fortunate enough to have a very generous benefactor contribute to our starter operating capital. Good thing, because being a new business it's difficult to get a bank to extend a large line of credit even with the most solid business plan.
