Your best business development ideas in Turkey

Hi everyone,

As a foreign entrepreneur, launching a business in Turkey is a fantastic project and an exciting challenge. Some ideas are likely to succeed. Some others are promising but may not work as well as intended.

In your opinion, what kind of business or industry is likely to succeed in Turkey? What kind of industry or service currently unavailable or underdeveloped in the country would meet local needs?

On the other hand, what are the most common business types foreign entrepreneurs would be eager to launch in the country but with very little chance of success?

Thank you for your insights.

Economy is quite down here. No chance to run a restaurant or so. (At least where I live in Turkey, Antalya), hotels remain closed. People don't shop here, keep your eyes opened at the supermarket, I don't see some does groceries in normal style. Go to the bakery, there are big books, where the bakers write the debts for bred! for people can't pay.
The only thing that is SURE for running here is sportsbetting. These shops are less but ALWAYS full. People give their last money for that.
Or opening money exchange. Not for tourists, Turkish go there also.
These are the only things that STILL work here currently.
I don't live in a tourist area in Antalya, by the way, I live in a Turkish neighbourhood. One just has to keep ears and eyes opened to see.
