10 Things Any New or Prospective Restaurateur Should Know
From Rick Camac, the entrepreneur behind the Fatty Group (Fatty Crab, Fatty 'Cue), you'll learn some of the many lessons he wishes he'd known when he opened his first restaurant. Mistakes are costly but can be easily avoided with education; unfortunately, most of us "don’t know what we don’t know." So here, Rick presents the answers to many of your questions, including those you might not even know to ask. We'll cover topics such as: why create a business plan, and what should it contain; what to look for in investors; should you be chef-driven; what outside help do you need; what to negotiate in a lease; understanding numbers and profit-loss ratios; and much more. You won't want to start any hospitality-related business without first taking this course.
