What would be an ideal size for a carpet track? 55x90 minimum you can do smaller but you will get complaints or "concerns"
How much money would be involve? (rent not included )60k build with inventory, this gets the basics, you gotta build inventory on your cash flow.
Man power? 4 people unless your wife, family, friends do not want to see you. Still one of the 4 is putting in 90hr weeks including time at his Main business. The other 3 are putting in 10-20hr/week besides the day job
And does location counts alot? IT helps but not a deal breaker.
Any other input is appreciated. Take a look at our place we put in in July of '05 you might see corners to cut, but about all of the labor was donated by 4 of us or racers that we have racing with us. We still put 60k cash in the place. You will need to paint, the Tenant Improvement was done by the land owner. We hung all the slot wall, built from scratch the display cases($40 parts). Our big cost was the asphalt it was about $8k to put in carpet will run you about 1/2 of that. So taking that out you can see you are still looking at about $55k to startup.
Feel free to pm me with questions, not trying to be negative but it is not as glamorous as it may seem having you own track.
