Default Things to consider I'm sure you're already aware of

Good food will always be in demand anywhere you go. You will have to learn about the pro/cons of running a food related business in FL. There may be regulations/permits/laws that PA doesn't require.
  • The type of food you plan on offering....
  • Who are you competing with?
  • Who's your clientele?

+1 I found Florida to be one of the strictest states when it comes to restaurant industry regulations.

Miami is expensive IIRC. And Floriduh's unemployment rate is pretty high at 8.7% in September

Quote:
Although the national rate fell sharply last month from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent, the state did not pick up much of the benefit. In Palm Beach County, the unemployment rate fell 0.4 percentage points to 9.2 percent. Martin County dropped 0.3 to 9.4 percent and St. Lucie County sank 0.6 percent to 11.7 percent. Those rates are not seasonally adjusted and should not be compared directly to the state seasonally adjusted figure.
