How good is the resturaunt business

Report as

The restaurant business is an extremely hard business. Especially if you're not buying a chain store. Think about how many you have seen come and go.

Waiters can make $400 from tips on a good night. Some make, like $600

It is very good. Why? Because people like to go out and eat. The key is to provide menu items that everyone likes.

They say 50% of restaurants fail in the first two years of opening. Look into opening a chain.

That's tricky. If you have AMAZING chefs and market it well you can make a lot of money. My dad is a caterer (voted best in Colorado) and he says he could make a lot of money if he went into the resteraunt business but he doesn't because it's hard to manage you never know exactly how much food you are going to need that night, how many people will show up, what they will order etc.

Very hard. My dad is having troubles just keeping a local sub shop open.

It depends on location, menu and quality of service and food, all the best mom and pop shops have fresh food, not frozen, canned or packaged, keep in mind you want the final price of your dishes to be at least 3 times what it costs you to make it, like say it costs you 3 dollars in actual ingredients to make a pizza, then you would want to sell it for at least 9 dollars not including the taxes.
