Is established competition doing a good job?
It is important to understand their strengths and weaknesses and reflect on how they will face these established companies. Learn from others who are already in this space Once you have finished assessing the competition, be sure to talk to someone who is already in business.
Local competitors will not give you the time of day, yes.
The last thing they want to do is help you be a better competitor. However, an entrepreneurial colleague who has started an MRI business in a non-competitive place for you can be a great learning resource for you, after realizing that you live far from them and will not rob your local customers.
In fact, they are often very willing to share startup tips with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten entrepreneurs to find one that is willing to share their wisdom with you.

Pros and cons of buying an MRI company
An acquisition can be an excellent way to access IRM’s commercial property. But it is important to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of buying a company before deciding on an acquisition or startup approach.
ADVANTAGES: existing companies have proven business models and a track record of profitability. They must also have some degree of brand recognition and an established customer base.
DRAWINGS: On the negative side, MRI business acquisitions can be difficult to adapt to your unique business philosophy, so it is important to make sure that the company is able to achieve its ownership goals before starting the buying process.
Franchising can be a better way to go
