Market Feasibility Studies
Our staff can help you examine the feasibility of your project before you invest a lot of time and money, or, we can refer you to independent industry experts for preparing third-party feasibility studies. If you would like to do a preliminary market study yourself, we have included several forms in PDF that may be helpful.
These forms may initially be helpful but we recommend you get professional advice from an industry expert before you make your final investment decision. Miller has provided the forms only as a guideline and takes no responsibility for either the method of analysis they represent or the manner in which they are used.
