Here is a mini step-by-step guide on how to start your own restaurant business. This
article was written to inspire you and give you an insight of the requirements in order to

First of all you must decide what type of restaurant will you open. Will you be
specializing in a specific cuisine like Chinese, Indian or Greek.

Educate your self regarding cooking and business planning. You want to know how to
cook so as to become a good cooking supervisor. You want to have a restaurant business
plan in order to determine your financials. Create you business plan. A mini business plan
would consist of information about your business, your products and services, your
customer base and your financials, expenses, supplies etc.

Choose the location of your restaurant wisely. Decide whether you will open a big or a
small restaurant. Then contact a real estate agent to help you locate a suitable location.
Would you start a restaurant in a busy crowded place e.g. near a central square (imagine
how high will the rent be) or would you select a quiet place in the nature e.g. near a forest
or mountain.

Create your menu. Decide what type of food will you serve, in what portions. Get a
business license. You want to go by the law here. Also acquire a liquor license to be able
to sell alcohol and don't forget to call the health department to see what standards you
must meet in order to start a restaurant business.

Now you got all the needed license you can sign the contract with the property owner. As
a tenant you are obliged to cover all expenses and taxes. Also, here you must decide what
will you do with the insurance of your business.

Now it's time to decide how your restaurant will look like. You can hire a decorator or
decorate it yourself, the way you want it to be. Depending on the cuisine you serve you
can decorate it accordingly. For example if you have a Chinese restaurant choose Chinese
decoration.

Promote your business as much as possible. Put your ad to magazines or local
newspapers, advertise on the radio or create a website and advertise online too. You can
offer food-coupons and invite people to try something delicious. Good food-coupons
worth a lot and can easily increase your customer base.

So this is how to start a restaurant business, the easy way. Of course, in real life things
can be a little bit more challenging...
