Cash flow best describes this business venture. Starting a billiards parlor that provides customers with pool table rentals, a concession stand and pool lessons is a great business to operate. Not only can a pool hall generate substantial profits, but the payment terms are also great: CASH. Additional income can be gained by selling monthly memberships and by starting a pool league. Currently pool table rental rates are $8 to $12 per hour for snooker, and $6 to $10 per hour for eight-ball tables. A mere ten pool tables can produce as much as $200,000 per year in business revenues.
