Really amazing and valuable comments out here. I read through each of them. I guess one reason why my impression about ‘restaurant business’ is different from what most of you think is probably because of where we stay.
I had a chat meanwhile with one of my friends who has been to US and he told me about the various regulations that the restaurants have to abide by including things like how far the kitchen should be away from the serving room, how the waiters serve, etc. He told me that starting a restaurant is indeed a difficult process governed by the Restaurant association there.
Luckily, as far as I know, we do not have so many stringent laws governing restaurant business. However, cash flow is an important factor as many of you have pointed out. I need to work upon this one..
By the way, I intend to also locate my restaurant close to a graduation college with residential students. I have been studying from one such place and I have observed that students tend to frequent these nearby restaurants quite a lot of times, irrespective of the cuisine getting ‘boring’. We had 3 restaurants close to my institute campus and we friends used to frequent each of these so many times. I think it would be a nice plan..
yes, we have BBC out here. But I havent watched this particular programme as yet. Will check it out, thanks for the info 🙂
This has been a real valuable thread. Please put in more thoughts as you get them. Thanks..
