    Dear, I would like to start a chain of eateries (Snacks and soft drinks) in South India. I would like to start with one now and expand in the near future. How should I start the process? Should I start a LLC (LLP) for this?

    I require some professional guidance on this. Can I have a model business plan for the same?

    Thanks and regards.

    I am a software consultant and interested in starting up a small scale Food manufacturing industry..
    Will appreciate you help in clarifying the doubts-
    1. Does Government give loan for setting up Food Manufacturing Unit? (I have heard it does but not very sure)
    2. Which commodity or food item you think will be a suitable option here (Biscuits/Cookies/Snacks etc)
    3. How much investment does it take? To start with.
