Restaurant Business Success: Persistence is the Only Requirement
When you first start talking to people about your plans to open a restaurant you may be met with skepticism and doubt. Many people will try and tell you this is a bad idea and discourage you from attempting to do it. Others may cite your lack of experience in the restaurant industry, your lack of capital or the fact that restaurants and bars have been known to be risky businesses.
In fact, it is much more likely that you will hear negative views about your project than you will get positive encouragement. Try to keep in mind however that none of these outside opinions make any difference. You can be 100% confident that your dream will become a reality if you just do one thing and one thing only. That one thing is to remain committed to seeing it through from the restaurant business plan to the opening day of your new restaurant business.
Persistence will win over all other hurdles. If you simply keep at it, and address each problem as it comes up and resolve it or work around it and do not quit until you have reached your goal then you can be completely sure that you will in fact reach your goal. Although it will certainly at times seem difficult or nearly impossible the truth is that the only way you will fail in ultimately reaching your goal is if you actually quit. So long as you don't quit and follow the steps and continue to make progress even if it is slow or at times halting you will eventually succeed.
Also know that once you have succeeded even on a small scale things will become much much easier. Every single internationally known publicly traded billion-dollar restaurant chain in existence today started from a single location. If you can get to one then you can get anywhere.
