Welcome to the Small Business Community.
As I read your description, it sounds like you have already started.
The BEST way to start any business is a Business Plan.
The Bus Plan is like a road map to success.
I also think that the building would be equity for the loan.
Maybe others in the community might have better suggestions.
Good luck, LUCKIEST and let us know what happens.
Thanks working on my business plan as we speak. I had the layout and now I'm putting it together. Glad that I joined the community.
T, Glad to know you are working on your business plan.
You should also think about retaining an Accountant, a Lawyer
an Insurance Agent and a Banker.
It is always good to retain professional help BEFORE you need it.
Again good luck, LUCKIEST
