The name of this article would be completely different, if not the case, whose witness I became. One fine day in the city building market was a rather strange couple: a woman is 30 years old with a child, whom she kept hard for her hand.
Just imagine, dust, dirt, unload the cement, there are boards, shit, shift the pavement tiles, the brigadiers are worn, private-private builders are like me, and here my mother and something is looking for something.
Having reached departments with boards, bar and clapboard, a woman decided something for himself and headed for the shop, near which houses were standing, very similar to garden / country toilets:
-Doned, here you are needed
Good day, what do you want?
We need a toilet for the country area.
We do not trade so, go through the 16th department.
Well, so, he stands.
This is not a dressing house.
-What do you tell me? I, that the toilet from … Bunner is not excellent?
The seller looked attentively at the woman:
-Well, what do you want. It costs 29 thousand.
Yes, you are crazy! Little house and almost 30 thousand.
It is a high-tech toilet.
-In terms of?
-Pin, which we supplies them put in it backlight, hood, tan and fan. Even the automation unit is worth.
-And you look
So this is not a toilet!
-Why did you not say me immediately?
So I said! And advised you in the 16th department to pass.
The woman turned indignantly, pulled the child by hand and went to look for the 16th department with real, not technological toilets.
That it was for a dressing house, you probably guessed — homemade smokehouse.
Such «houses» began to produce a few years ago a simple guy from Kopeisk (Chelyabinsk region). And, in my opinion, this is the most successful and fast start of your business related to production without multi-million dollars. When you start the case with big starting capital — it is, of course, great, but when there is almost no money, and the idea has earned — such an experience is more valuable doubly.
Judge for yourself … It all started with the fact that Andrei, an electrician by education, his father asked to make the electrical part to the homemade smoke. Andrei’s father was engaged in pigs and wanted to sell not just meat, and smoked fat and meat.
Together, they have slept for almost a week: they took the toilet-house with a double roof as a basis, collected a frame, insulated it, weathered with a thin sheet of stainless steel, embroidered with an exhaust, fan, heater and put a small automation unit.
But the first model was so lucky that the Father, who was like the newly minted brainchild, scratched the head and said:
You know, son, meat, of course, well, but this thing can be sold!
No sooner said than done.
The first model was left at home, the second did in three days and put out the familiar seller in the construction market. The smokehouse so similar to the country toilet did not stood and the day — she bought it someone from his own sellers.
On the second day, Andrei and his father received an order at once on five smokers. One and a half weeks and order was performed. All smoked smoking literally in a couple of days.
This turned out to be enough for the father with his son to understand: the idea works, the demand is. The assistants took two friends and opened a small enterprise for making homemade smoking.
At first, smoked smoking on one market, then agreed with entrepreneurs in the markets of the regional center. A year later I got to my native Magnitogorsk. Andrei’s smokehouse is sold only in construction markets and specialized stores — he does not do sales.
In addition to smoking houses, they make saunas, steam rooms, and in the last year the bath barrels went well.
Today they have a lot of imitators, there are whole plants that make almost the same smokers, but they cannot compare with Kopeyski for one simple reason: at the expense of the volume, the prices for their products guys put the most democratic.
In a small family workshop, 11 people work — he himself, younger brother, father, two friends and 6 people of workers. On average, for the month, the shop makes the order of fifty homemade smoking, several saunas and baths. The smokehouse is sold all year round, and the baths and saunas are more taken in the fall and winter.
With the history of Andrei, I met when I was looking for a material for an article about Banya-barrels (this material is still ahead). I will say honestly, millions of guys do not earn, but for good income, at times exceeding the average salary for each employee, the workshop came out in the very first year.
