I want to start my subway franchise at the end of 2011 in NYC. I have a comfortable corporate job but always wanted to start my own business. subway seems like an ideal fit for my needs. i am 34 with mba so if i don't make money i can easily go back to corp america. my concerns are that subway stores are all over the place and not sure how my store can separate itself from the rest. does anyone know how much startup costs would be for a store in manhattan? will this store cost over $1mn since it is in manahttan. i am planning on dedicating a lot of time (70, 80, 90... hrs a week) to make this work.
