I am interested in starting a one-product (initially) business in Houston, TX. I have made a "rough" prototype and I am currently looking for manufacturers. I was looking at overseas companies but after reading stories of people having to fly back and forth and excess finances spent over unforeseen circumstances, I think it may be better to have my prototype and product made here in the US if not in Texas. While I am calling and speaking with manufacturers, are there questions I should ask? For example, I'll ask about whether they will source the fabric, pricing per unit, and minimum sale requirements. But what pre-contract information should be discussed. Additionally, what are the pros and cons of selecting a larger manufacturer that may have a marketing/sales/distribution capabilities vs small manufacturer (besides $). I'm a novice. Any advice is welcomed and appreciated.
