I want to start a a new business, which is to provide a specific service to the tenants of an office building. I need to find out whether the building management would be open to allow this business to operate on it's premises and also whether they would want some form of rental or payment to allow me to run my service on their premises.
The service would be beneficial to the building management firm, because it provides a service that enhances the quality of life of employees of the companies renting the offices.
But, how do I go about protecting the "business idea" if I go to the building management company and present the idea to them? (I'm afraid that they will just say no to me and then start providing the service themselves, as it is quite a simple business concept.)
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
