I couldn’t be more passionate and excited. I’ve never cared for anything in my life like I care for food (maybe one thing 🙂 But before I change my life and invest my savings, I want to calculate every move I make, I can’t afford to put myself in a precarious situation.
I’ve spoken to the real estate broker, the street location has 17k plus vehicles per day and good signage. There is a brand new apt across the street, as well as Whole Foods and other major retailers within a quarter mile. There are also lots of microbrews around the area (I’ll make sure to serve their beer so I won’t hurt anyone’s feelings).
It has the opportunity to turn into a neighborhood staple with very cheap grub and cheap beer (no liquor). But I don’t want to dive in head first if I can’t get my numbers to work.
I also think that 140 meals per day is WAY too optimistic for an opening restaurant, I’m trying to find ways to build margin without sacrificing quality.
