HI!

I live in a small but booming city in NJ. What I have noticed over the past five years is the enormous increase of babies, toddlers and young parents. I can't walk two blocks without encountering 10 strollers. I feel like I need to try and start a business to capitalize on this mini "baby boom" in my town. We have a few day care places and a couple of children's clothing stores already. Aside from these, what are some other options that I can explore?

I was thinking about a children's party place, but commercial real estate prices are out of control here and would kill all my profits. Looking forward to any ideas you may have!

Thanks!

Thats crazy, I was just thinking about this yesterday. I found something that souns perfect for you. I'm actually thinking really hard about doing this myself. A stroller exercise program. You dont need to buy or rent space, you just need a public park or mall, and advertisement. The two places that I looked into were Stroller Strides and Stroller Fit. Just Google them. I've never been to either, but they sound fun. I'm looking for more research before I do anything.

Maybe party planning? You do all the work from home for the most part. When parents want to set up a big bash for their kid's 3rd b-day or whatever, YOU'RE the one who does the dirty work (calls around for a place if they don't want it at home, buys the decorations, etc...) Charge a flat rate that'll cover time and decorating expenses, plus the cost of any rental equipment/rooms. Pretty much a no-brainer. Get one of those magnetic signs to place on your car. They're fairly cheap if you shop around at sign/graphic shops.
