Starting a restaurant or food service business requires you to do your research and pre-planning. A hard reality is that many restaurants fail during their first year due to lack of planning and good management skills. To help you get started in the right direction, we've invited a subject matter expert to speak about starting, running or growing a profitable and successful food service business. The following topics will be discussed: * Ownership - restaurant versus food trucks, equipment, salary structures, operations, inventory control, etc. * Financing - debt vs. equity, equipment financing, best banks for your restaurant concept, etc. * Inspections - permits, USDA certification process, sanitation and food safety requirements, food handling and preparation, etc. * Site selection - leasehold improvements, negotiating leases, choosing the right location, etc.
