Business Idea: Independent Restaurant Setup Service

by willbonds

Let’s say someone wants to start a restaurant, but they have no idea how to do it. Oh, they know what kind of food they want to sell, and maybe the theme or ambience they want to project, but they don’t know the nuts and bolts of permits, licenses, buildings, kitchens, fire code, grease traps, first aid, safety, walk-freezers, equipment, point-of-sale terminals, credit card handling, hiring wait staff or counter help, finding good help, finding chefs and cooks, and all the other little mechanical and logistical things (like dealing with food service companies) that it takes to make a restaurant happen. It’s a lot of stuff, and is a lot of hard work. But if you could clear $150K or $200K every time you took someone through this process, it might be a good enough income to make it worthwhile. 

But would it be fun? Could you sell the business for a profit later? How soon? For how much profit?
