Opening a brick-and-mortar location will be one of your biggest ongoing costs, so it’s important to weigh all your options before you sign on the dotted line of your lease.
In chapter 10 of the SCORE Startup Roadmap, you’ll learn how to stake your claim on a location for your business.
Choosing your company’s physical location is a crucial decision—one that can make the difference between customers finding your business or passing you by.
