If you opened a business, what kind of business would it be?

I think a food truck would be great. Or maybe some kind of museum.

A theme park with Disney quality attractions but bigger and more elaborate. Like longer more in depth experiences. Not just rides but almost mini worlds you can walk through.

Would you specialize in New York thin crust or Chicago style deep dish? I appreciate both types but I know places usually pick one or the other to serve. Lately I've been loving this new place in town that has a thicker type crust with bbq chicken.

Side note: could be an interesting poll for the drome on NY vs Chicago pizza.

NY style all day. Born & raised there, so that is the gospel I spread.

If I had my choice and I was better at it, I'd prefer to be self employed and working in 3D models and animation.

Alternately, I once worked for a short time for a couple who'd opened a little franchised embroidery shop. (And had a really cool t-shirt/fabric printer as well.) They didn't make it long unfortunately, but it was prob the funnest job I've had. I wouldn't mind doing it again, were I capable of and up for running a business. (And if it would make it.)

A comic/game store and pizzaria combo. I've discussed this a few time with Mr Duckie, and we want to call it "Pizza Pair-o -Dice". Basically a place to buy comics and gaming merch, host games and comic events, and serves a gamer's favorite go-to food.

Heh, that's cute! And great idea!



Games and pizza... Inspired me now to want to take the Chuck E. Cheese (meh, screw Chuck E.) ShowBiz Pizza concept, turn it comic/hero themed, have costumed characters accordingly (hourly), and arcade winner tickets that can be traded in for collectable mini comics specially produced for the place and other comic/hero inspired merchandise both big and small.

I had a similar idea. I guess great minds think alike.

My perfect store would be this big building that would specialize in selling comic books and manga/anime and various merchandise pertaining to those things. Oh, and action figures and collectibles as well!

It would be a haven for nerds and otakus of all kinds. A place where they could meet to have a good time and discuss the things they love. A place where even anti-social people could go to make themselves happy and feel good about themselves.

It'd need a built in restaurant or a coffee shop like Candy Kappa mentioned. I like the idea of it being part maid-cafe. Yeah, that would be great!

It'd be like a Barnes and Noble, but 10x better!!

As a kid the first business I wanted to open was a book store that only sold Goosebumps books. The entrance was going to have slime that "opened up" to let people. Each shelf would only have a copy of each book, so a shelf for every single book and I guess a new shelf would be put on the store anytime a new book was released? Needless to say my business ideas have improved since then.
