Re: StatHeads, Help Please for Research
A few things you'll want to look at:
- Costs to open
- Costs to operate (including franchising fees)
- Expected revenue (which is probably highly dependent on location)
- Saturation of the local fast food market (is there sufficient demand?)
The specific numbers probably aren't that hard to come up with. The challenge of the exercise is to understand what your considerations, you business questions, should be and how you should model your assumptions. The actual data comes last.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
