Description as provided by

— “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Starting a Restaurant provides a strong formula for analyzing the potential business success of your restaurant venture. — Providing a ‘reality’ check, the book helps future restaurateurs, learn how to make orders, check inventories, hire personnel and choose menus. — No branded competition or outstanding titles in the category. This book covers more than one aspect, replacing the need for two or more expensive books. A recent survey by the National Restaurant Association found restaurateurs to be hard-working, affluent and optimistic, but only 50% said they would do it all again. Hundreds of thousands of these business people work hard — more than half put in a minimum of 60 hours per week. But despite the hard work, the restaurant business can be one of the most fickle and difficult businesses to break into. Why? People get into it for all the wrong reasons. Voila! The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Starting a Restaurant is here to provide the recipe for success. How do you decide how much money it will take? When do you know you’re failing — or succeeding? If you’re failing, when do you pull the plug? If you’re succeeding, how do you successfully expand? Focusing on these kinds of business questions, this book takes a practical approach.

Description as provided by

“In this revised edition, aspiring restaurateurs will find everything they need to know to open a successful restaurant, including choosing a concept and location, creating a business plan, finding the cash, and much more. New content includes information on tips, tip-outs, and reporting for the entire staff, choosing the best POS system, setting up a bar and managing the wine list, and making the bottom line look good long-term.

-Restaurants are a high-risk venture, but starting a bar or restaurant is still one of the most popular new business ventures (Cornell Univ/Mich State)”
