Just my thoughts on the issue.
It might be easier to take over an existing bar than starting from scratch. In may area for instance, once a site is selected, every new business has to go through the planning and zoning department. The department makes the determination if the business is a good fit for the particular area. This can ad months to the process of opening a business. Then the business has to go before the county commissioners for final approval. The process has taken up to a year to complete in some cases. Plus, you have to go through a very long process to get a liquor license for your business. These license, since there is a limited number issued, can cost upwards of $50,000.00. Of course cost and the process very from state to state.
Taking over an existing business would eliminate many of these hoops you would have to jump through to open a new bar.

The older we get, the more excuses we make for not chasing after our dreams. But truth is, goals are attainable at any age.
