  • James expert adviser said on March 10, 2011
    @bills, start with the basic things. Is there a need of butcher shop in your locality. Do a survey to know the answer. If there is a need then do you have a meat suppliers in nearby area? Do you have a nice location to open your store. Licensing will not cost you lot but there are some prerequisites that you need to meet for applying a license.
