What are the pros and cons of opening a kiosk in the train station?
Is it a good parnassah?
Eh, It depends which station. U need to contact mayor bill de blasio. He may have the statistics.
I don’t why operating such a business in a train station is any different than anyplace else. One still must run the numbers and compare lease costs per sq/ft, lease terms dictated calendar and hours of operation, utilities, inventory storage, state/township permits and licenses (more complicated and expensive if you prepare food on premises), insurance, security, etc. and compare all that to estimated sales revenue.
Like any business, long-term experience in the field is probably the most valuable, if elusive, asset one may need.
As one with the above mentioned user name, I consider myself an expert on pros and cons.
My answer is, it depends. What are you selling? Food is always a good thing. Small electronics are good as well. But when they start with the narishkeiten of clothes and scarves, I don’t see how it makes business.
Oh! One more thing. Umbrellas are a must.
