That makes about 30% of the people currently living in Huntington in my target age-range of 15-35. My target market's income range would be about $50,000 per year, that being 20.6% (9,913) of the population. Retail sales per capita in 2000 were around $8,798, and totally amounted to $1,700,614,100. The average tourist in the year 2004 spent $107.70 per day in Orange County, and 2,750,652 people visited Huntington Beach in 2004. These aspects would allow for an extremely prosperous business.
