Thousands of Americans Act on Their Dreams to Open Their Own Restaurants
Last year, 55,659 business licenses were issued nationwide for new restaurants.
For thousands of Americans, these business licenses represent the first step to make the dream of their own restaurant a reality. New restaurants are the lifeblood of the restaurant industry, as well as the lifeblood of "Restaurant Startup & Growth," the magazine written specifically for these entrepreneurs.
"Next time you're out with friends, ask if anyone has thought of opening a restaurant, and chances are the answer is yes," says Restaurant Startup & Growth Co-Publisher Gary Worden, a successful restaurateur himself. "And if you own one restaurant, you want two," he adds.
And Worden should know: Last year, he applied for a business license for his second restaurant.
For example, the current issue has features on making your profit-and-loss statement an important management tool, how to handle unruly kids, how to set up a soft drink service, as well as a primer on video ordering systems.
Basic information on marketing techniques, legal issues, and personnel management are also included.
"That's more than $13 billion of new money coming into this dynamic industry, and we want to make sure our readers spend that money wisely," he says.
