Review of business plan and financials 

Enough about us, let’s talk about you. What is your vision for developing your own local market? We are eagerly listening, so spare no details.

This process will include review of all partner’s Personal Financial Statements, your Operator’s resume and your group’s Business Plan. Below are some popular questions to consider addressing in your Business Plan.


  • Who is your Operating Partner? Who do you know? Is there an existing infrastructure to pull from?

  • Who are you connected to in the community? Chamber or other organizations? Those in real estate, construction, etc.

  • Who is already there? Are there similar concepts nearby?


  • What is your plan to saturate the market?

  • What are your strengths or accomplishments in similar ventures?


  • Where is your proposed Development Territory?

  • Where within that territory would you start?

  • Where are our competitors?


  • When do you anticipate starting this venture?


  • Why is Taziki’s right for your market?

  • Why are you the right person to take us there?


  • How will you meet these timelines? Do you know of available real estate? Do you have existing infrastructure?

  • How do you plan to finance the first and subsequent units? Do you have existing infrastructure to pull from?
