Development Workshop DVD Set Available

On June 18-21 the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) held its inaugural Range & Retail Development Workshop for a capacity crowd of entrepreneurs. The four-day workshop addressed questions such as “Where do I get started?” “To whom should I talk?” “How much does it cost?” “What rules and regulations do I need to follow?”

These questions and a variety of other important topics to better prepare someone in the planning and decision-making process were addressed by knowledgeable industry representatives. Topics thoroughly covered included: Choosing your location / Demographics; Public relations / Community relations; Planning / Zoning / Permitting; Bank relations; Profit margin vs. markup; Business case / Business planning; Architectural aspects / Build out; General contracting / HVAC; Lead-management practices; Store infrastructure; Operational expenditures; Insurance; Staffing / Training; SOPs/Policies/Procedures; Marketing / Opening; and Revenue-enhancing ideas for the return on investment (REI for the ROI).

All of the proceedings of the workshop have been captured on a nine-disk DVD package. It is available to members of NSSF for $350 and to nonmembers for $695. You can order here.
