range trap : target.jpg retail 5.jpg
With 10 years of commercial real estate experience I'm now in the indoor range development business. During the past year and half I've visited countless indoor ranges and the major range vendors / manufactures (Meggitt, Action Target) to research others owner operators successes (and failures). Eight weeks ago we opened the doors to a new 15,000 sq. ft. indoor shooting range. We are scouting sites and talking to investor groups now for our next location in light of the success.
We are also talking with three groups in our region of the country about consulting and or possibly franchising to take full advantage of vendor discounts.
This is a business, not a hobby. The model includes Equity Memberships sold for $10,000 each. Two months prior to grand opening the first Equity Membership was sold. 35 were available and only two remain. Of course daily use, individual, family, corporate memberships will continue to be available.
This looks like a great forum!
