Becoming a restaurateur is a goal for many people within the food service industry; the idea of running a restaurant rather than working in one being a dream. And why not? You get to put your own mark on everything from your food and your business to your service and even cutlery.
There are lots of factors to consider when you buy a restaurant. Think about how hands-on you really want to be and make sure you confine your search to businesses that suit your criteria and that are within your budget. You may be delegating day-to-day tasks to a management team, in which case, you may not be spending every minute in the kitchen, but you will need to keep a close eye on the bottom line and ensure business practices are ship-shape. If you are planning to roll your sleeves up, make sure you buy a business you feel passionately about.
