    Starting a new business in Washington DC , MD and VA area

    LOFTOSHARE Newbie

      I AM INTERESTED IN OPENING A FOOD RESTAURANT IN THE WASHINGTON DC AREA,MD & VA WHERE I CAN CATER FOR A LARGE POPULATION OF NIGERIANS,GHANINIANS AND CAREBIAN POPULATION THAT LOVE AFRICAN DISHES. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS BUSINESS IN MY HOUSE AND PEOPLE THAT EAT MY FOOD HAVE BEEN TELLING ME TO OPEN A RESTAURANT BECAUSE AMONG ALL THE AFRICAN FOOD THAT THEY HAVE BEEN EATING, NONE TASTE SO GOOD LIKE MINE . ADDITIONALLY , WHEN I TAKE FOOD TO A WEDDING EVENT, AND PEOPLE TASTE IT, THEY COME TO ME FOR A BUSINESS CARD WHICH I NEVER HAVE.
      PLEASE ADVISE ME ABOUT GETTING A SMALL BUSINESS LOAN TO SET UP A SMALL RESTAURANT AT A GOOD LOCATION, AND I HOPE TO REPAY BACK THE CAPITAL INVESTMENT WITHIN FEW YEARS. ALSO, I WILL LIKE TO EXPAND INTO MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA .
      THANKS
      MARY
