The RYO (roll your own) industry has increased from 1.8 million to 2.7 million since 2009 and is expected to increase to over 3 million in 2012 based on research done by the Treasury Department and Center for Diseases Control and Prevention. So I am planning to open a discount tobacco store. (although I never would have if my parents didn't already have a store front building I could use.) With the machine that makes the cigarettes I get a protected area based on demographics which for me will be the entire county. I will be selling ryo cig's, pipes & pipe tobacco, budget & premium cigars, smokeless tobacco, etc.
Again I have put allot of thought into this idea and based on the research and numbers from other location in similar areas, my business could make nearly 5 times what I make in a year teaching. Yes I know I want get all the time off, but I also want have to answer to any one about why I did this or that, or put up with a loud mouth, obnoxious child that think they are grown at 14. Call me crazy but I am sold on the whole idea. Just to get some sold research for the area i plan to do it in I did a pole on about 10 people in the and around the community and the results where higher than I expected.
