Well everything is finally in place after over a year putting this business together. I have likely the best location you could ever hope for secured in the city, the financing ready to go, the contactors are prepped, I have experienced staff ready to work and am just waiting for the city to approve my permits so I can start renovations (they just need to go through the steps but they have told me they have no doubts i will have approval in the next couple of weeks - I have several affividavits from the neighbouring businesses and, as well, the Local Community Assoc. along with the Local Business Assoc. are both behind me).
That said, I do have a question - its looking as though I should be able to open in January, basically as soon as the renos are done - I was suspect it would be a good idea to register with Hostelworld so I can start getting the word out now and possibly getting some early bookings... but unfortunately though, I will not have any interior pictures until the renos are done.
So do you think I should wait until I have some good pictures of the facilities (its going to be very funky/flashy) or should I just register now with some external pics of the building and maybe location pictures? I also have some rough 3D renderings of what its expected to look like that I guess I could also put up.
I would love any advice/experience you have about this
As always, thanks for the help. I doubt I could have got this far without the resources of HostelManagement, still can't believe that all the hard work has paid off and that I'm going to be opening in the only 2 months. :)
