From “Ask Kit!”:
Q: Your website has a wealth of information, but I’m wondering if you have info on building a B&B, either from ground up or converting an existing structure that has never been a B&B.
Also, have you done any research on opening, owning, and operating B&Bs in Australia and New Zealand?
Thanks for the great website!
A: I haven’t tackled the complexities and variables of starting from scratch, as far as my websites go. But I can tell you the challenges and decision-making process are very similar to going with a turnkey operation. The process merely starts at a different point. I know there are folk on the forum who have started from scratch who could help you out. I have had clients start from scratch so do have experience in that line of consulting and innkeeping. If I can be of help to you, please ask. If the forum members can be of help, ask the forum pepole directly.
I haven’t done much work in Australia and New Zealand. I’m sure the laws are different, but much would be the same between operating in Australia/New Zealand as anywhere. The culture is different also, but you’ll find that hospitality is the same everywhere.
I’m glad you found the site and valued the content. Stick around, there will be more.
