Sizzler already exists.

Mine would be called
Warm me up!
We would sell pocket warmers to the male gender. The reason behind this is when we are out in public and it's cold and we go to a public restroom, most times our hands are cold. Then you gotta reach in and find your "buddy" with cold hands. WHOA!!!! That will shock most.
I would start my company outta my house and when my company got huge, I would move into a warehouse.

Edit* was called out on my spelling.

I have this really weird idea for an all-night reference service.

Quoting Garri767 (Thread starter):
-What would its name be

I dunno... Mid-Night Information, Inc.?

Quoting Garri767 (Thread starter):
-What would it sell/serve

Reference service. Need to find a 24 hour service that's not easily located through ordinary means (phone book, internet)? Call me. I'll refer you.
For example: Need to check a fact? I'll either give it to you or refer you to KnowItNow24x7 available via http://www.cpl.org

Quoting Garri767 (Thread starter):
-Where would your first location be

Seeing as this could be a one-person business, a small office or storefront would work easily.

I'd make my income by collecting fees from companies/services that list with my service. Maybe have a subscription-only website. Of course, non-profits would be exempt (like the above-listed library service.)

What makes this different than calling directory assistance or looking in the yellow pages? Evaluation and quality. I wouldn't just list anybody - they'd have to have a clean legal and consumer complaint record, and consistently take the patronage I refer.


I also have an idea for an independent, Christian-oriented library, but that would not be a business venture.



Up, up and away!

This has been a dream of mine for a while now.

Name: Piper Pub (and if it is a Tavern AND Inn, then I'll call it "Piper Pub and spInn" or "Piper Pub and Spin Inn")

Business: Tavern and possibly Inn too.

Location: YYC would be nice. Other acceptable locations include several large towns up and down the Rocky Mountains.

Edit to add: obviously it would be in close proximity to an airport. YBW is a nice place, but too remote to sustain a business.

A colleage of me his dream is this;
(no kidding!)

Erotica Airlines!

"whatever your fantasy, we have it!"

he would lease a pink A380, make a Jacuzzi in it,
sauna and stuff like that, special rooms and kitchen on board where Chocolate, champaign and strawberry's would be dispatched to every room.

The aircraft would then take off, pick up customers at various destinations and do stopovers in Tahiti, Mauritius, Malediven, Ibiza and stuff like that!

Basically it's a cruise-flight where you can f**k!

Funny, but I think it would work!

1. I have an idea to open up a singles grocery store. I would have 15 locations in Yuppietown, USA.

2. I'd like to open up a lodge on the Las Vegas strip simply called ROOMS. All it is is rooms. $39.95 for a single bed, $49.95 a night for a double bed. All you get is your bed, a bathroom, towels, couple of lights, and a table. There's no gimmick, no entertainment, no shows, just rooms. And a 24 hour snack bar. That's it.

I would like to open a BBQ restuarant one day and I have been kicking around a few names...

The Intellectual Boar (with a logo of a pig reading a book while sipping a glass of wine)

The Notorious P.I.G. (specials could be named after dead hip hop rappers)

or I could combine the two things guys love...good BBQ and strippers. It could be named Naked Pork or maybe Pork Naked.
