Zoning varies from state, county, and city but most zoning are based upon the "intensity" of the use. As to your question I believe parking and primary hours of operation will determine what extent of conditional use permit you would need to obtain for your commercially zoned property. In rare circumstances you may be able to locate in an industrial/business park zoning. I suggest you speak to the planning department.

You need a commercial property. It could be a mixed used, where you have apartments/condos above. I believe you should first decided the size of the property and the type of population you want to serve. Is this going to be for low income, middle, high income families? That will determine its possible locations. The street level of a new condominium in an area that is been gentrified could be an excellent choice. If you get into an area that is not yet totally redeveloped, you could negotiate a very good rent for many years, but at the beginning you will not have that many clients.
Once you have a clear idea of the ideal space, contact your real estate agent and let her/him do the work for you.

We have several in our area. Most of them are in an industrial business park environment. Go to the city and/or county governing agencies in the area(s) that you're considering putting your facility and ask them the areas with the allowable uses for your business type. The Planning Department would be your first stop. Good luck!
