not everything exported we manufacture some of the food you can't say that everything is depended on international trade.  I can proudly say that Gerogian producs are tastier it' worth thinking about starting little food related business. Georgian cuisine is really interesting and Georgian products DO taste different

Hi dear friends,
could i purchase a restaurant, Bar,Fastfood or old house(to become motel) with 25,000 $ in Tibilisi or Anaklia or Kobuleti?
if no, with how much?

how about + 0

You can not buy a restaurant for $ 20 000!

Yes you can, but unless it is based on Georgian cuisine - there are low prospects for its survival. In Batumi we had several restaurants with international kitchen but rarely which survived. Currently the best (if not the only) international restaurant in Batumi is Munich, there are few good Turkish restaurants, some Azeri and Armenian restaurants, one McDonalds - and that's it.
Anyone knows when new SMART market is to be opened, construction takes longer than expected, but this is Georgia ;)

Hi there, I was wondering are you interesting in import fruits from Thailand, I'm thinking to import fruits and various of goods that rarely to get from other or reasonable price than other, if you are living in Batumi, Tbilisi, and possible to rent a place or some space as showroom such as Young Coconut, Mango etc... I think this is a good idea to grow business and share profit together as wholesale and retail, I would like to come over Georgia and take a tour and survey, I can find product in Thailand direct from farm / entrepreneur, so that we can start business as low as we can, if you interesting please send me to *** to share more ideas
