Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

While many industries in Maryland have struggled to add, or even hold onto, workers this year, restaurants have been hiring in recent months, according to labor department figures.

Still, many restaurateurs are struggling. Only 19 percent in the state reported higher same-store sales in August; 59 percent reported a sales decline, according to a National Restaurant Association survey released by the Restaurant Association of Maryland.

Overall sales at Maryland restaurants during the first eight months this year were down 0.1 percent from last year to $5.86 billion, according to an analysis by the restaurant association of figures from the state Comptroller’s Office. Sales declines were seen in Montgomery County and Baltimore city, while Prince George’s and Frederick counties posted gains. Read more.
