We know some people that own small businesses so we do know about licensing and all that. We have a location and and the means to lease a building to put on the property. Just need more info about feeds stores. We have also considered other businesses in this location, like a tire and mechanic shop.
Feed stores are tough. There is not a lot of profit from feed, and with the grain producing states being hit hard with bad weather this year, I can see it being even more of a challenge to make a profit. I would love to open a feed store as I have the knowledge (compared to the places that are not feed stores but sell feed) a great location, plus I love farming. I have spoken with two feed store operations and the feed just brings the people in, and hopefully, they will get a sale on something else. Feed has gone up $3.00 here, one bag of layer costs me $15.00 plus tax. Good luck to you, maybe you could contact a feed rep and hear their story, experience or ideas.
