I often ask myself that question, just in case I ever do win OzLotto or Powerball (). Having ecclectic tastes, I've got several preferences. One is to start a fried chicken shop/chain, using my secret recipe. Everyone who's ever tried it reckon it's the best they've ever had, which, let's face it, isn't hard: Australians can't do fried chicken to save their lives. My recipe is a result of my kitchen experiments after years of watching American cooking shows.
Another thought is to start an art materials supply shop. I actually did a year at art school, believe it or not! I love going into those shops and seeing racks of brightly coloured paints, pencils and pastels. I'd be interested in selling lines of raw pigments, as well, for people who want to make their own paints from scratch.
So, what kind of shop/business would you like to start if you could, and why?
