How would I go about buying and running my own sweet shop?

I know this sounds really cheesy, but I’ve wanted my own sweet shop ever since I was a kid. How could I do this? How much money would I need approx? I don’t know anything about running a business so any help would be appreciated!
Thank you to the people who have answered sensibly. I want a sweet shop as in sellling sweets, chocolate etc NOT a sweat shop!!!

    You are looking at a lease of approx $3500/month + utilities for approx 200sq footage or $500K property. Not to mention inventory, wages, taxes, insurance, and so much more.

    My guess:

    Start-Up: $500 K

    Recurring: $5000/month

    Now if you are reffering to a “sweat shop” then your costs goes down to $0 except if a human rights organization discovers you.

    no, not cheesy at all! it all depends what kind of building you want. you’ll have a better buisness if you homemake some of your treats.

    actually, good idea. good luck!

    first chose your location
    negociate rent
    register with your local council for buisness rates
    fit out the shop
    and then get stock and weighing machines
    open your shop
    good luck

    I cannot believe you want to buy and run a sweat shop. That’s horrible.

    You rent a shop.
    You contact sweet wholesalers and buy stocks
    You sell

    If you just sell the bars of chocolate that supermarkets and other shops sell you might struggle to compete. Better to sell sweets out of jars that people used to buy years ago. There is a big market for nostalgia.

    You want more advice and ideas it’s gonna cost you!!

    Start by having a market stall and personal door to door sales and develop a customer base. You can test the market that way without a substantial financial outlay.

    hi, try these two links for info about running sweet shops, one is a business plan for a sweet shop, it costs £30 but might be worth it http://www.interstellar-solutions.co.uk/Sweet_Shop_Business_Plan.html
    http://www.sweetshopbusiness.co.uk/
    also have you thought about doing a short course in business planning? that way you could cover all the basics before you jump in at the deep end and you’d have the support of a tutor.
    if you are serious about starting your own business make sure you do lots of research. these links should help you with general business stuff:
