    At home cook
    I live in a town of 3,500 people.  Very busy in the summer and dead in the winter.  I would like to start a meals to go business.  I have found a commercial kitchen to rent and would offer 3 dinner choices per day.  My idea is to have customer call or email their order the week prior to pickup (there would be 2 pickup locations)  Has anyone done anything like this?  I would appreciate any thoughts or ideas.

    Hi!

    I'm running something similar, though in an entirely different part of the world .. i guess mine is more conventional. It's a delivery joint where people call in to place their orders. I'm operating in a rather huge town, with loads of other competitors .. but i do know that you can expect to hit around $500 dollars in daily sales, from just your current population.

    Do, do your maths before operating such a venture. To see if it's feasible or not.
