I was wondering if anyone thinks a internet lounge/game room/cafe type place would be worth opening around here.

1. Give teens/young adults a place to hang out during the week end and during the summer.( would stay open until 2-3 in the morning)

Computers
Tvs with xbox and ps3
Snack foods like wings, burgers, hotdogs, chicken tenders.
Drink (soda,water)
Couches/chairs
Obviously internet
And stuff like comic books, shirts, and smaller items to buy.

Do you think this would be a good addition to mountain view?

Absolutely! Go for it! Keep it monitored so parents will be comfortable with their kids going there (no drugs, trash talk, booze, etc). Wish there was a coffee house for adults like the Rhythm and Brews we used to have here, too. Different groups played every weekend for tips and a meal. Sandwiches and plate specials, people came in to read or just hang out, play chess, have a meal, or just be with people. Good luck! Kids need and deserve a fun place to go.

Not unless you have money you just don't want! Most business ventures in Mountain View fail because the market is just too small to support them. TFP Too Few People.

That may be true in part, but look at the small businesses that DO succeed. What kills most new businesses in this town is the way they treat the locals, who are their bread and butter YEAR ROUND. Instead, they cater to the tourists and don't court the local trade. If you get a good reputation with the locals and treat them right they will support your business and recommend you to tourists.

Id charge a "entrance fee" and id make money on the food and other things Id sell. Internet usage would be charged per hour.

Also could have amateur night for poem reading, comics, singers etc.
just wondering

I say go for it but the person that was talking about businesses in mountain view not working has a point even though the kids need something to do in mountain view besides drugs chances of the good ole town folk people accepting it are slim to none they like it when the kids are bored and would rather them do drugs. I am all for it though the kids NEED SOMETHING to do outside the house and fun!!! I praise you and what you are trying to do!!! I hope it works out for you

i agree tfp, the only way i see it working is if you get the church's to endorse you. The church's view video games and the internet as the devil and who really runs this town ? the church's

Ya know my wife and I have had this convo a dozen times. I run a media/marketing company, and most of my good friends live in bigger cities with "workspaces" -

You can pay $50 a month, and get access to a nice office (shared) meeting rooms, internet access, gym, etc - Basically lots of people splitting the cost of a nice office.

So basically you get a nice workspace with other "net" type people. Designers, programmers, marketing guys, etc - I'm so jealous.

Travis and Rachel own Turner Coffee Tree and I think they had the idea to turn it into an internet cafe, but the location is tough. Unless you love here, you'll never knows its there.

I could see a nice setup like I mentioned above doing good, and actually putting a lot of people to work. Writers, etc

Anyway, if you ever get serious give me a shout
