    What Mysuru lacks is a Meat Store which sells poultry and fish under one roof and which has an Air-conditioned waiting lounge where customers can wait while meat is cut and cleaned. This is a business idea for all offline meat sellers because how much ever we order online the meat sometimes leads to upset stomach due to poor handling by delivery boys.The meat stalls at present are all very small , looking forward for someone to start a clean and neat Super store for meat in center of city in mysuru.
