Hi all I’m new to this forum so first I wanted to tell you a little about myself. I am 26 years old and just finished culinary school. I have always had a passion for cooking even from a young age. I live in a small town of chowchilla ca with a population of 15,000 people. Their is a restaurant here that opened 9 months ago it has a great location on the main street in town. The problem is i drive by the place everyday and i only see 1 or 2 cars in the parking lot if any. I fear the place is about to close due to no business. I have spoke to many locals who say the place isn’t worth the price and they don’t want to go back. I would love to buy the place and start my own but i don’t have the money. What i would like to do instead is approach the owner and ask him if I could help turn the restaurant around but I don’t know how to begin. In culinary school i took extra classes on business management that i believe has prepared me to run a restaurant. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated thank you.
