Considering Cagayan de Oro City’s positive economic outlook and favorable business climate, thoughts of self-employment inevitably spread like wildfire. This may be especially true if the city you are in is booming with investments while you are not currently employed. Starting your own business and being your own boss can be incredibly satisfying and fulfilling, however, one important thing to consider is choosing the perfect business location.

The most important decision a business owner will make is choosing the right business location. It requires precise planning and research which involves looking at the demographics, assessing your supply chain, weighing the competition, staying on budget, and understanding laws and taxes to mention some.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right business location.

Most businesses choose a location that provides exposure to customers. Additionally, there are factors that also needs to be considered, for example:

  • Brand Image – Is the location consistent with the image you want to maintain?
  • Competition – Are the businesses around you complementary or competing?
  • Local Labor Market – Does the area have potential employees? What will their commute be like?
  • Plan for Future Growth – If you anticipate further growth, look for a building that has extra space should you need it.
  • Proximity to Suppliers – They need to be able to find you easily as well.
  • Safety – Consider the crime rate. Will employees feel safe alone in the building or walking to their vehicles?
  • Zoning Regulations – These determine whether you can conduct your type of business in certain properties or locations. You can find out how property is zoned by contacting your local planning agency.
