Want to please every customers .You will be closed with in a year trying to please all kind of customers .You may argue there are restaurants doing that – Think about timing and resourceIf you don’t find your niche market in the location you want to operate . better dont invest.
You cant adapt to change or evolve .This happens to large chains or franchise . living in myth we were best for last decade and people will come to us
Cant maintain good Profit margin .Profit margin in restaurant business are too low mostly 3 to 5 % leading up to 15% in a good business environment. High over head cost and low margin cost of sales will kill any restaurants .
Don’t have passion and patience . Passion is crucial to hold on to restaurant business; without this you will be out of frustration .Patience – restaurant is not a get rich quick business model . You must give its time to grow. Hence like we said before capital reserve in hand is crucial .
You know where people tend to save Money in a restaurant . start by cutting corners . First they stop or reduce the marketing Budget. This is a complete NO . Marketing is the blood line for Restaurant Industry . You need to keep pushing your brand out in the Market .
