" A Must Have List "
of the Companies & things, for Every Small Business
 Syracuse, NY & Beyond

Working in Cafe

When people open the business, they often miscalculate & underestimate their  initial expenses or hidden cost.

I created the list, from my own experience, what newly open business must absolutely have for the first year.

Not just business, but anyone who plans to relocate to a new area. I was lucky enough & previous owner was kind

enough to live me some contact information, such as lawn mower they used, etc. Otherwise, It took me over a year

& "kissing" couple of "business frogs", until I was able to build a good contacts list of reliable people. 


I also​ learned, over the years, working for private businesses, corporation & various non-profits, that, ALL of them run

based on the same principals. I believe donating to Charity & contributing to one, is a great way to preserve business

success in a future. So, this list, applies to every New Business. As "a Must".  In my opinion. 

In the regions with a lot weather changes, especially snow & storms, having alternative to the plane or the bus, such as

train, can be a great options. In United States, not many travel sites offer train tickets, as a primary transportation choice.

I used Amtrak in January 2021, from Sacramento, CA to Chicago, IL. It was very interesting trip, and great alternative

to the airport cancellation. I added Amtrak on my list. In America, on the West Coast in particular, trains are probably the

least common form of transportation, while cars & planes make majority.


Public transportation, such as bus or NY subway, in US has a "bad wrap", as not the safest form of transportation. I did not include any form of general public transportation under travel options. Some rides on Uber or the Lyft cost less than cup

of late grande, plus they are safer. 

I selected companies for this list based on:

Knowledgeable in their field

Do they have a Valid License to operate? 

How Long have they been in Business?

Communication Skill

  • Do they able to answer the phones in case of an Emergency?

  •  Do they communicate details & able to answer questions?

Being on Time

Do they give a Time Frame for Arrival?

Do they actually Arrive on time?

Technological advanced

  • Do they offer a Text or Email appointment confirmation?

  • Do they offer online appointment booking & selection? 

  • Do they offer online invoice pay? 

Being clean & accurate

  • Do they Provide Installation?

  • Do they Clean up after the repairs? Does it cost extra?

Quality of Final Service or Product 

  • Do they offer any type of service warranty? 

  • Do they have a discounts for returning customers or legacy program?
