STEP 1: Find a Location

Find a location for your potential business.
  • Explore different site options.  Study profitability potential and demographics about the area you have chosen.
  • Think about present needs and how those might change with time.
  • Avoid unwanted costs, delays and frustrations—Apply for a Certificate of Occupancy before you lease or buy an existing tenant space or building. Ask yourself if the building or tenant space is in a condition suitable for occupancy?
