Default Setting up shop in Wilmington?

Hello all, I'm a restaurant owner here in new York city and tired of this grind...thinking about relocating my Latin food restaurant/ cafe to north Carolina? Preferably Wilmington? Would a Latin (non Mexican ) restaurant do well there?

I think so, as there are numerous northern transplants who would know the cuisine. (We're from Washington, DC.) I hope you do Brazilian food, or pupusas and other Central American. But there are a limited number of Latinos in the population, and you would have to educate many of your local customers.

I just moved out of Wilmington but I know your restaurant would do very well. There's a foodie culture there and word of mouth will work for you. Also advertising in Encore, the local alternative weekly.

Or....you could open it here in Durham where you'll also be embraced! ("America's Foodiest Small Town," according to someone I forgot).

I'll be honest, a lot of people in Wilmington will think you're Mexican. But there are enough who won't, and once the others are taught the difference, they'll be into it. In contrast, you wouldn't have to educate people in Durham.

I know I sound like a snob.
