Even a casual observation of the “comings & goings” of both local and trendy neighborhood restaurants proves that this industry is one of the riskiest to enter and remain successful.
Restaurateurs face a complete spectrum of business challenges, very similar to a manufacturer and a service provider. These challenges include marketing; production and cost control; management of spoilage and pilferage; preventing embezzlement; and ensuring customer satisfaction, all of which can make it difficult to run a profitable establishment.
