Why Restaurants Fail
Starting a restaurant sounds like an insane idea for most people. That's probably because, for most people, it is an insane idea. You're probably thinking, "Don't most restaurants fail?" Yes, they do. But, that's not a problem. Most restaurants fail because they are opened by outstanding chefs, which is the problem. It is a problem because restaurants should not be started by excellent chefs, but by excellent businessmen. Restaurants, although they deal with food, are not a job for chefs, but for businessmen. Restaurants are forms of business. Now, don't get me wrong. Restaurants are about food, too. That's why your delicious food is reason to start a restaurant. It's your turn to become a businessman, though.
