An amazing number of people “always wanted to have
a restaurant.” They seem to envision a small place,
manager operated, that they occasionally visit to see their
adoring customers and to haul off wheelbarrows of profits.
We feel the best services we can offer these people is saving
them from themselves. So we will be quick to tell you when,
in our opinion, a concept will not be sustainable. We have
saved many people tons of money with this candor.
These are the facts of the restaurant business and foodservice
operations in general:
• It is not difficult to serve interesting, good quality
• Providing excellent service is very doable.
• Offering compelling ambience can be done
• Providing good quality food and excellent service
in a charming, enjoyable atmosphere – and
making a profit is extremely difficult.
