I want to open a nightclub/bar in North Carolina. I found out that the ABC controls everything you do. You can't even promote happy hours, open bars, etc. It's illegal. Another stupid law is that you cannot sell more on alcohol and therefore, you have to become a 'private club'. I lived all of my life in the Philly, NY/NJ bar scene and I have never experience so many restrictions.
In any case, I have decided that my venture could work since I am bringing a more progressive attitude. Something that I feel is needed in this community. I have a business plan and some cash money. I have the staff and great ideas. I am looking for some guidance, hopefully someone out there reading this post is from NC. I'm also looking for a 'invisible investor'. I will use 80% of the cash flow to pay back the investor and a dividend after 3 years.
If you are interested to hear more about my nightclub idea, email me.
