From these analyses you can use this data to create a business plan. If you plan to attract investors or get a business loan you will surely need a good business plan. Indoor Playgrounds International can help you with this step of the process if needed.
Find a Location
Location Location…. we all know that the location can be crucial to the success of a new business. If possible pick a high traffic area such as near a mall or shopping center. If you live in a high tourist area then pick a location next to where tourists might come in/out of your town.
When looking for a building keeps in mind that if you want to make you play structure tall you need a tall building. For a 3 story play structure you will need at least 15 feet of unobstructed height in your building. Also look for any obstructions in the building where the play structure will go. If you want electric soft play in your playground then make sure electricity is possible to the area you need it.
