Hey folks,

I have been contemplating starting a food business in Lubbock. Small operation, and my idea was to bring some North East styles of food down South! I am from the NYC/New Jersey area, and am quite familiar with the Lubbock area having served at Cannon AFB there for almost 4 years (in Clovis, NM).

Anyway, what do ya'll think? Could Lubbock use some of that? I haven't been back in about 2 years and since I got used to being back in the East Coast, I don't know what all has changed out there.

Thanks!

I say, "Go for it!" If it was a hit at Cannon, then it will be a hit in West Texas. The best way to go, right now, is to create a destination for your product.

Agree with Case. The restaurant industry is very competitive in Lubbock, so marketing is a must. Since it's not a chain (I think?), it should have an advantage in that respect.

What exactly do you mean by "North East styles of food"?

I would not put your life savings into this food business because i think something like 60 percent of new food places go out of business.I would have a plan b in case it doesnt work out.Thanks for your service.

My father was stationed at Cannon for years, which is what brought my family to this part of the world.

Lubbock is growing rapidly, and the folks here love new places to go. That being said, the restaurant industry here is probably as competitive as it gets. National chains that don't have to try to succeed, fail in Lubbock.

There are many new local and national chains opening restaurants in Lubbock. While the competitions is tough, the first must is very good food. Having something unique is also important.

I too, am curious about what types of foods.
