Hi. Im new in the business game and would appreciate as much help from you guys as possible.

I live in Peterborough which is a booming city. A friend of mine owns a real busy take away. Whilst talking to him the other day, he told me that the local cash and carry and has put up all the prices for his stock. ie, from vegtable oil to plastic cups. His weekly bill has gone up by £600!

I imagine this is the same everywhere else. I took it upon my self to start searching for cheaper products for my friend, but unfortunatley, cant really find anything. I want to set up a mini (hoping to expand) cash and carry service and offer cheaper products to these guys.

Is there anyone out there in the similar trade who can advise me on where to go?? It would be highly appreciated!!

Hope to hear from you soon.

Welcome aboard .

You should start a new thread within our General Small Business Issues category on the topic of how to find less expensive suppliers. Typically you will get more responses if specific business questions are not asked in the new member introduction section here. In your scenario, can you find less expensive suppliers? That seems to be a major hurdle for starters.
