I have been thinking about opening a place kid of like Gymboree ("gymnastic" classes, sports classes, art, music, etc.) in the West Jordan area. I want it to be more affordable, however, as well as offer more evening/weekend classes for working parents. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or feedback about this. Thanks!

I think it would be a great idea IF you can keep the prices reasonable. Being located in Jordan Landing would give a lot of visibility to your business.

Lightbulb Look at the Demographics......

Affordability would be the key. Jordan Landing is not exactly cheap.

Look at the demographics for West Jordan and remember the recently split Jordan School District and the fight between the two school districts now. If parents on the west side a lot of excess $, I don't think the fight would be quite as big as it is.

Look at the demographics that are easy to find in a number of places. It will break the population into age, income, race, daytime/ nightime etc. and at a 1, 3 and 5 mile radius. If you've done your homework, you already know this info and how much you'd have to have in revenue monthly to be profitable.

Are the kids in West Jordan? Absolutely. Do the families have the disposable income? That probably depends where in West Jordan they live and job security. Let me put it a different way. Many in West Jordan are bypassing seeing their doctors like they use to even 12-18 months ago, and they aren't shopping at the high end stores for clothes this year.

I'd encourage you to look at some of the vacated buildings more between 3500 West and Redwood Road. Rent is far more reasonable for a business that depends on a family's disposable income.

Good luck...
