    Shoe shine business in Bangkock?

    Open question...do you think there is a market in Thailand's major cities for old style shoe shine business's?

    One on every busy soi.

    50 baht a shine.

    Low start up costs.

    If it were a sustainable business, it would already be in operation. Therefore logic dictates no in this case.

    with added extras such as oral relief ("whilst you're down there .......") it could be a winner.

    Hand car washes are all the rage in the U.K. Makes Me feel like one of the Kray twins, I taught Reggie to use a shooter in the East End, and he followed My instructions to the letter.
    Blind Beggar Pub in Whitechapel, now all the Bengals live there, not speaking cockney.
