I spent two years of my life trying to put one in Houston along with a few Indian Casino locations across the US.
With the help of SkyVenture, we lined up financing and ironed out the technical issues, but still couldn't come up with $1million in cash needed for the start up of the Houston facilitiy then had a rug pulled out from under me.
It is not easy. I have done all of the dues diligence and spent close to $75,000 of my own money in analysis, legal fees and pre-requisites to get one.
Best of luck to those who are interested and if someone wants to purchase my due diligence, it is for sale. The price tag will be $200,000 and will save them allot of time and money in doing the same due diligence which I have already done.
