I am thinking of starting a small business in the Wolfe County area. At least initially, it would only employ myself but hopefully the need would be great enough to expand later.

So, what type of business is needed in this area? Please provide your ideas and thanks in advance...

I wholeheartedly agree - a grocery store that offers brand names, lots of different types of fresh fruits and vegetables - asparagus, specialty lettuces, brussel sprouts, okra, etc.
Also, coke products, a deli, and a bakery.

A few more dealers and pushers in jail would be even nicer.

No Grocery store will fair well in Campton now that they have Save a Lot in town. Craft supply shop would do well or a Hardware store would be nice. Competitive one that offers a larger qty of building and plumbing materials that stays open on weekends and later in the week the working man isn't able to shop from 9-5 through the week. Those we do have are too costly since they have no competition. I would rather go to lowes and pay my extra in gas as to pay 2-3 times the price in town.

We really need some type of work. We really need a factory that pays a good wage of at least ten dollars and hour plus benefits. Until we have that we won't have the economic base needed to support things such as a family type resturant, craft shop, or even a family type of entertainment. What I would like to see us get besides the factory is something like Lee county has, it is family entertainment, fitness center, bowling alley, and even a few games as well as a small resturant that sells things such as pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers etc... If they can get grants to get this why can't we. I would also like to see us get something similiar the the PEP coalition. It is a coalition of lee county organizations, social, religious, and business that worked together to get a place for people to meet and work on computers. They also offer classes in things such as basket weaving, musical instrutments, and classes in things such as gymnastics, yoga, and even self defense. They also offer social gatherings like singing and picking, family movie nights etc...This started with a grant. If counties such as Lee county can get these grants why can't we?

Ok IMHO I think if you are serious about tryin to put in business that will make it . I think you should put in a 24 hour athletic center weights treadmills the whole thing it'd be a keeper.
How About

How about a dance hall? Of course I mean a type of place anyone could go to, not a saloon. Or how about a flea market?

I just do not believe basket weaving or any of the classes "really" is tralking about will cure the economic woes of Wolfe County. Remember all of these have been tried in the past by different grants and endowments. The people that can really benefit from these programs have been pushed aside so much, they have stopped participating. What we need are effective buisness, civil, and educational leaders that are dedicated to the success of the county along with their own success. We have a FEW buisness owners that have taken advantage of the unknowing. We should be asking for FAIR wages and benefits for every worker in Wolfe County including: county workers, medical personnel, and classified school personnel, just to scratch the surface. It is time for what we do have to be responsible.

It will never happen, a select few has control of the City and County not to mention any names (the Judge or Mayor). Besides, the drug dealers are doing just fine. Why does the county need anything else!!!!!

The PEP coalition is more than just holding classes in basket weaving etc... It is more of a combination of family type things and educational type things. It's primary goal is to give kids and adults something to do besides use drugs etc...They even help adults with things such as how to write a resume', how to use computers, and they even have a television hookup that you can attend classes, including college, at thier building. They also have companies to come in occasionally to hold job recruiting including work at home type businesses. I think if you really knew the whole scope of things they can and do offer, you would understand why I like this organization. I have worked closely in the past with two administrators and was very pleased at what they did.
PEP stands for People Encouraging People. I think that says a lot right there.
i agree
