Watch Restaurant Impossible. Learn from the mistakes.

My fiancée's parents own a very successful restaurant that I helped them get off the ground. What do you want to know? Need some kind of specs on said place you want to open.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Where are you opening it? Ohio?
be ready for it to run your life. i dont own one or have anything to do with the restaurant business but i have friends who do. you have to go into it ready to work long hours and be ready to stress out alot
FSU Ambassador to the masses
This is 100% true. Once you get it rolling and have good money coming in hire someone you trust to run it so you don't have to be around it every hour it's open.
Yes ..I lost my ass....Mine was a franchise...the franchise made all of the money....you will have no life...when you take a vacation it is all you will think about....you will wake up at 2 am wondering how to make payroll and pay taxes....you will wonder where do all of these tax bills come from...Run like hell.
Silent partner of a small share for about 4 years now. Lost money 2 out of 4 years.
ask steve cook
Can I just hang out at the bar for free? I'll put out the vibe.
Yes. Perrysburg/Rossford area.
Will be going in with someone. I'm sure that will lesson the amount of time a little. I plan to be there 24/7 in the beginning.
Sending you a PM. Thanks!
I will need to see this "vibe" of yours first.
Not looking to do the franchise thing.
Who is Steve Cook? Thanks
You don't want to know. Seriously, it was a funny post, but Steve Cook isn't going to help you at all.
He is a Carolina fan. He owns a restaurant in Columbia called Saluda's. I believe his name on here now is SCarCock
Ok thanks for looking out!
Are you a good cook, a fast cook? Do you have restaurant experience?
Unless you get everything exactly right the restaurant business is terrible. It's extremely stressful, hours are long etc.
As for hiring someone to run it for you...lol good luck with that. That's what they all say, I am being serious.
Throw your money into a fire. You won't waste as much time, it will be more fun, and the end result is the same. Good luck!
own 5, all but one from scratch. shoot me a pm if you want.
^^^this, don't let people itt scare you OP. the first years are rough but once you get it established you'll own 5
With that vibe I will throw in free appetizers.
Will do thank you!
