    Hi Mafiaisland, welcome to TFSA

    What is your area of expertise? Are you a chef or an entrepreneur or did you just decide that opening a restaurant would be the thing to do? There are existing threads on business plans if you use the forum search tool above.

    Welcome Mafiasland, I have a customer who consults to restaurants Brand Strategy look at his website as he has lots of articles on running restaurants. For the plan I would search for templates and start from there.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    A restaurant is hard work. You must have a passion for food and people if you want to make it in the restaurant business. You can find a lot of examples of restaurant business plans and business plan templates on the web. The success of your business plan and your business is dependend on the amount of time you spend on your research.

    Yeah, it's going to be a lot of hands-on hard graft. There's a fairly common mistake where people are sitting in a restaurant in the middle of peak season and do a quick head-count and some spend per head calculations on the back of their napkin. Next thing they're in the market for a restaurant. I'm not suggesting you fall into this bracket but the failure rate of these businesses is very high. The only way I would buy or start a restaurant would be if I was head of a drug dealing syndicate and I needed a front for money laundering
