5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Guideline February 4, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a very helpful starting point for those who are looking for general knowledge on what it might take to open a restaurant. One of most important aspects are their estimates of the funds needed. Of course, the exact amounts are going to vary from each person, but this book does a great job of giving you idea of "ballpark" numbers. A lot of the book won't apply to everyone since it breaks down the different types of restaurant but like I mentioned earlier, it's a good starting point. I personally found it to be very useful and brings of very good tips and insight on some of the differences between a good and bad restaurant. Overall, I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is in the beginning stages of wanting to open a restaurant.

This is a very well organized review of everything you must cover before opening your new restaurant. It is comprehensive from a topic standpoint. The content in each area ranges from substantial to light thought topics. It works as a nice peek behind the wizards curtain (the romanticized notions of owning a restaurant) to see what it really takes to be successful.

Tons of useful information, references and guidance. It doesn't quite prepare you for all the hard work and frustration but it helped a lot.
