    Default Help me with your business ideas about what New Zealand lacks please.

    Hello one and all.

    I like to think of myself as an entrepreneur. I try to turn ideas into businesses.

    Will you help me pick the brains of this community from around the world?

    What does New Zealand lack? What could you buy in your own country but it is inconvenient to get in New Zealand?

    I am not asking you to give your own ideas for a business. Just that if you would like something in New Zealand but will not set up a business to do it yourself, to share your thoughts with me.

    I hope I can build a business providing people in New Zealand with something that right now is poorly provisioned.

    Thank you very much.

    Good Mexican restaurants. They are virtually non-existant here.

    Good items that have potential for sale are :
    1) European biscuits and cookies
    2) Desiginer Bed covers/ sheets and pillow covers.

    I am sorry, hope it doesn't sound too 'un- friendly'.....- I actually don't want to be able to get everything, do everything etc. like I was used to! If everything was the same as back where we came from, we could have stayed there.......
    There are things which I can't buy or only buy when I drive somewhere or order them online, but these are things I am more than happy to replace with others, more easily accessible.

    But I am sure someone will have some helpful ideas

    My wife discovered that Smith & Caughey had the bed linen she wanted.

    Personally, I would love it if there were more stores like http://www.smithandcaughey.co.nz/ , Farro http://www.farrofresh.co.nz/ and Nosh http://www.noshfoodmarket.com/ .

    High-speed unlimited data broadband! Might be tricky to import, though.

    Frozen Pizzas. If you can produce even a half-decent frozen pizza, you should be onto a winner.
