Answer: Thanks for your inquiry. A mini supermarket in Kampala would do very well in a place with a high foot traffic like near the Taxi park and near the University townships within Kampala like Makerere University (MUK), and Kampala International University (KIU).
These highly trafficked areas also come with high rental charges and a reasonably large shop suitable for a Mini supermarket could cost you some USD1500 or so... per month.
Obviously you need to line up your suppliers for commodities, and make a good market strategy.
You will have to Register your company and also get a trading license from the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
You will also have to apply for a Uganda tax Identification Number (TIN) and also secure a work permit.
