Will a Gujarati thali place work in the Baltimore area?

Hey guys. Thinking of starting an Indian chaat and thali place in the Baltimore area (near Columbia/Ellicott City/Catonsville area) you think it will work?

I know many Gujaratis eat at home, but many don't have their parents here and miss that good home cooking food. Also, many non-Gujaratis want to eat/try Gujarati cuisine.

The concept will be pure vegetarian and will have:
- Chaats (chaat papdi, sev puri, dahi puri, samosa, cutles, pakodas, etc.)
- Gujarati food (khaman, dhokla, patra, khandvi, kachori, handvo, pau bhaji, vada pau, etc.)
- Gujarati Thali
- Rajastani Thali

The concept will be three dimensional:
1) Carryout (chaats, gujarati food, and even a tiffin)
2) Dine in (Thali)
3) Catering

Do you think this will work? Please give me your feedback. Thanks.
