Most entrepreneurs end up funding their "pre-money money" needs out of their own pocket. I'm fortunate to have the support of a gentleman who believes in PCM and in myself who agreed to provide that first bit of funding himself. I'm very grateful to him.
Now things can really get cooking as I hire three key consutlants to help me finish up the planning:
- Retail Planning Specialist (helps with the floor plan, equipment plan and inventory plan)
- Deli and Prepared Foods Consultant (to help develop a unique menu and signature deli experience)
- Brand Development Consultant (to help further develop PCM's brand identity and strategy)
