Restaurant Business
 
So, I'm thinking about starting a small restaurant back in KY hometown. No experience. Any experienced advise? Text or call me at 352-321-8423.

One half of all new restaurants fail in the first year. One half of those that survive the first year fail within three. It is not a business for someone with no experience.

This is not the forum to get answers.

Highest bankruptcy rate and alcoholism rate of any business. Very difficult way to make a living and still have a decent quality of life. The hours are ridiculous and finding good help at a wage that lets you make a profit is next to impossible. With the recent push to bring the minimum wage to $15/hour (I used to work for a minimum wage of less than $2/hour), you have to charge prices that make customers run away. And local towns/municipalities have jumped in to charge a dinning tax that also scares away customers. Trust me on this, I have a four year degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration. After working in the field for a few years, I ran away and changed career paths. One of the best deceisions I eve made. If I stayed in that business, we would never have been able to afford the Villages dream that we are now living!

I had a close friend who started a barbeque restaurant from scratch. Long story short, the business failed in less than six months and he had to take bankruptcy. I would say no one should start a restaurant without years of experience in all aspects, waiting, cooking, and business. Everyone seems to think they could run a restaurant simply because they like to eat. You could be the exception, but be careful.
