Your Food is Good Enough
When you start a restaurant, you are starting a business. You must pay attention to several things. Perhaps one of the most critical mistakes a lot of restaurant owners make is that they try to continually make their food better. If there aren't enough customers, they try to make the food better. Why? They think that the better their food is, the more customers will like the restaurant and will come back. That's partly true, but it is mostly not. Restaurant owners should focus instead on the rest of their business. Accounting, inventory, advertising, vendors, etc. all need the owner's attention, too. These deserve equal amounts of time, if not more, than the food quality does.
