There is an old Circle K station near me. I'm in a good part of town. I don't think getting business would be a problem. The station for sale has 4 bays and 3 lifts. Been closed for about 4 years. No tanks. I would get a no action letter for myself for any epa issues. The station minus needing a bunch of cleanup is pretty much ready for business. Lifts and compressor and stuff already in place. Started running some numbers but unless I get about 3 mechanics busy there I don't think I can make money. I wanted to start slow with just one mechanic. I also work a fulltime job and would just do this on the side. I would have to hire a fulltime mechanic to run the place. Besides the hourly rate how else would I make money? Do we mark up parts? I would concentrate on a quality business that completed work on time and had good communication with the customer. Am I crazy. Just always wanted to run a business for myself.
