I haven't been able to blog for some time due to a hectic schedule. I wanted to give my readers a quick heads-up what is going on at the moment. I am in the process of starting up an international operation including a Blue Chip Business Center franchise. Our company has involved a business developer consultant for this matter. The business concept has three main business areas:

  • Blue Chip Café selling coffee, tea, cookies and sandwiches, etc. The café is decorated with antique furniture. You could bring your own laptop and surf the net for free, if you are a member. Dismuke Radio is often played and now and then a band is playing after work business lounge jazz. The historical inspiration is coming from an article in The Economist.

  • Blue Chip Business Center with post office services, including mailboxes, shipping packages and other courier services, printing and binding documents, telephone and incoming call service for box owners, virtual and physical office space, etc.

  • Blue Chip online community and member club that is connecting entrepreneurs and business minded individuals around the world. The incorporated association has several activities, e.g., conferences, courses and workshops. The member has access to a library with books and magazines.

If you are interested in the business idea and want to receive updates, please send me an email to: Martin AT BlueChipCafe DOT com. We will put up information on our international web site and blog when the material is ready. I am thinking of using a special blog for our team activities.

Please feel free to give me tips and suggestions on sources regarding the franchise topic. With the help of our business contact and studying and learning the field, I am positive that our venture will become successful. Sean's post, Franchising Defined #1, is a good start of my education.
