Published May 26, 2023, 5:20 a.m. by Naomi Charles


If you're thinking about opening a restaurant, you're not alone. The restaurant industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the United States, with new restaurants popping up all the time.

Of course, starting a restaurant is a huge undertaking, and it's not something to be taken lightly. There are a lot of things to consider, from the menu to the location to the financing.

And if you don't have any experience in the restaurant industry, it can be even more daunting.

But don't let that stop you!

Starting a restaurant with no experience is possible, and we're here to help. In this article, we'll give you some tips on how to start a restaurant with no experience.

1. Do your research

The first step to starting a restaurant with no experience is to do your research. This includes everything from studying the restaurant industry to learning about the different types of restaurants to understanding the ins and outs of starting a business.

There are a lot of resources available to help you with this research, including books, websites, and even consultants. So take your time and make sure you understand the industry and the process of starting a restaurant before you take the plunge.

2. Find a niche

One of the best ways to succeed in the restaurant industry is to find a niche. There are all sorts of restaurants out there, from fast food to fine dining, and each one has its own unique challenges.

If you can find a niche that you're passionate about and that you understand well, you'll be in a much better position to succeed. For example, if you're a foodie, you might want to open a gourmet restaurant. Or if you have a background in the hospitality industry, you might want to open a bed and breakfast.

3. Put together a team

Starting a restaurant is a team effort, so it's important to put together a strong team of experts who can help you with everything from the menu to the marketing.

If you don't have any experience in the restaurant industry, it's especially important to have a team of experienced professionals who can help you navigate the challenges of starting a new business.

4. Find the right location

The location of your restaurant is one of the most important factors in its success. You want to choose a location that's convenient for your customers and that has the right mix of foot traffic and parking.

You also want to make sure that your lease terms are favorable and that you have the option to renew your lease in the future.

5. Create a great menu

Of course, one of the most important aspects of starting a restaurant is creating a great menu. This means having a clear understanding of your target market and what they're looking for in a dining experience.

It also means having a menu that's diverse enough to appeal to a wide range of customers but not so diverse that it's confusing. And, of course, you'll need to make sure that your menu items are priced correctly.

6. Promote your restaurant

Once your restaurant is up and running, you'll need to promote it to attract customers. There are a lot of different ways to promote a restaurant, from traditional advertising like print or radio ads to more modern methods like social media marketing.

Whatever methods you choose, make sure you're promoting your restaurant in a way that's consistent with your overall brand identity.

7. Train your staff

Another important aspect of running a successful restaurant is training your staff. This includes everything from teaching them how to make your signature dishes to teaching them how to provide great customer service.

Investing in training for your staff is an important way to ensure that your restaurant runs smoothly and that your customers have a positive experience.

8. Evaluate and adjust

Finally, it's important to evaluate how your restaurant is doing on a regular basis and make adjustments as needed. This includes everything from tweaking your menu to changing your promotional strategy.

By constantly evaluating and adjusting your business, you'll be able to make the necessary changes to keep your restaurant successful for years to come.

number one question that everyone asks

is how do i start a restaurant with zero

experience

today i'm going to answer all those

questions for you and reveal the six

different steps and

actually insights that i would point

people to when i reply to their email so

then that way you guys

have all the skill set that you need to

build a thriving

profitable restaurant so make sure you

guys keep watching

hello friends my name is wilson your

friend in helping you build a profitable

restaurant just want to

show some love to these two individuals

for their love and support and that's

the community that i want to create a

positive

and encouraging one which is the reason

why if you want to get featured make

sure you guys go into the comment

section below and leave

us a comment now without further ado

let's dive right in

number one insight in starting a

restaurant with zero experience

is to know your strengths and know your

weaknesses how amazing would it be if

you were to go into your restaurant

have your staff take care of all the

customers for you and you're just there

to make sure everything is

nice and handy and at the end of each

month you get paid handsomely

that is the goal and ideal place you

want to get to

and that's the reason why you need to

know your strengths you need to know

your strengths so then that way you can

double down on that

whether it is hiring people whether it

be marketing

whether it be just cooking good food

know your strengths

double down on it that should be your

focus now know your weaknesses as well

so for example if you're not that great

at managing people then you should

definitely hire

for your weaknesses hire a manager that

is good with

talking to people hire a manager that

understands what culture is all about

on the other hand if you're just not

that great of a cook but

you really enjoy this industry same

thing hire a goddamn good cook

so then that way they can get good food

for you and that way you can take care

of your customers

regardless of the fact you need to know

your weakness and you need to know your

strengths

that's how you're going to be able to

build a thriving business

second insight that i want to share with

you is to find a food concept that is in

high

demand now what is what does that even

mean

finding a food recipe that within your

city people are

actually always ordering and that

becomes part of

their eating habits so for example in

vancouver bc

people love bubble tea and which is the

reason why there are a lot of bubble tea

shops here people also like vietnamese

food people also like

sushi and these are our staple items in

vancouver which is a reason why

if you were to build a restaurant build

restaurant concepts revolving around

these cuisines

then that way you can really capture the

demand that is coming in

supply and demand why is that the case

why is it super

important it is because let's say for

example if you have

the best fried turkey leg in vancouver

no one's going to buy it because that's

just not the demographic that would

enjoy

this type of food staple you might have

the best

dish out there but the concept doesn't

work with this demographic

hence no demand it doesn't matter how

much supply you have

no one's going to buy it that's the

reason why you would always always want

to find a food concept

within your city that is in high demand

then you don't need to go and beg for

business

business will come to you third insight

that i want to share with you if you

have no experience

is the fact that location truly matters

i know a lot of people talk about that

location location location yet

rarely do people talk about why location

is super important

location is super important for your

restaurant concept is because you want

to have it at a location your concept at

a location

where your customers are hanging out it

doesn't matter how great or how prime

your location is if your customers are

not hanging out around that area

then you're not going to get sales

simple as that so definitely understand

where customers hang out and have your

food concepts by that area

to give you an example my client has a

greek shop in downtown vancouver one of

the best greek foods out there

but yet they don't have much business

and i asked them i'm like why is that

the case who are you really catering to

then they start telling me about hey you

know what we cater to the families who

miss home

and we were super popular when we're in

a different city part of the city

and we thought that it would be a great

idea to move to a more prime location in

downtown vancouver

and once they moved business went

downhill the reason why i went downhill

is because they moved their location

from where their customers are hanging

out which is around the city area

the greek village area and moved it to

downtown vancouver where a majority of

them

people there are more millennials and

they're not really used to this kind of

cuisine

which is the reason why location

location truly does matter if you guys

want to learn more about this definitely

check out this video

as i talk more about the variables and

the different components that would make

a great location for your food concept

point number four is to know your

customers this is something that

always preaches to know your customers

know exactly who you're serving your

food concept to

and this is something that i talk about

in point two and point three

knowing the food concept is important

knowing the location is important

but knowing the fact that where and who

is it

that your customers are is really the

essence of what you need to know and

find out

10 out of 10 people that i actually talk

to or i can solve for

they don't know who exactly is it that

they're serving they don't have a full

page

of description about their customer

demographic they don't name them

they don't know how much their monthly

income is they don't know what they like

what car they drive

what sports they play who is it that

they root for all these things

it is as detailed as possible and you're

talking to that one

person we're not talking about talking

to the whole vancouver

or the whole city we're talking about

one person that we're talking to

by you focusing your narrow by you

serving that one

demographic you end up talking to

everyone else it is counterintuitive

but that is the way for you to gain any

type of attraction so knowing your

customers

are super super important and if you

want to learn more about that

once again we created the video right

here for you to understand

and identify your ideal customers

next up is to know your business plan

guys so many people i

actually mentor it is mind-boggling it's

crazy

people don't know what they're doing

they don't have a solid plan they don't

have solid

foundation of what they're doing they

simply are just

thrown into the ocean and just trying to

swim ashore but not knowing where which

way they should swim to

having a business plan is like having a

guide having a map

knowing exactly where you're heading and

that's the reason why it's super

important for you to understand and

build

your business plan on top of that if

you're looking for partners if you're

looking into raising funds

this is equally as important so then

that way you can actually bring this

business plan

and to actually raise funds with or to

actually engage with different partners

nonetheless having a business plan

will only help you as hard and as

tedious as this process going through

this exercise allows you to have much

more clarity

within your business what is your

financial projection who is it that

you're serving

what makes you different what is your

swot analysis what is your unique

selling proposition

all these things should be put into your

business plan

to even create one

this video you should definitely watch

because this is what we go

into in depth of how you can create a

business plan so make sure you guys

click this

and watch this video final final insight

that i want to share with you

is to always keep learning this is one

of the

major things that i always always preach

is to

actually keep learning a lot of people

feel complacent they feel like that

you know what after i go through high

school post-secondary i don't need to

learn anymore

and they end up just being out there on

their own but this whole journey being a

restauranteer

is an art as a science as well so

definitely go out there

and actually learn from someone who's

been there

and done that why do we even want to do

that it is because

the mistakes that they make you can

actually see you can actually learn from

that and avoid

those mistakes and oftentimes that are

that's like a hundreds of thousands of

dollars of mistakes that you're saving

and years shaved off your learning curve

which is the reason why

you should always go out there find

people that you are inspired by

find people who has been there and done

that and that's the way that you

can actually shorten your time frame and

to actually save a lot of money and

that's what i do as well is that i learn

from people who have been there

and done that maybe a few steps ahead of

what where i want to achieve

and ask them how how did you get there

what are some of the crucial mistakes

and that's what i'm doing for you guys

is to share these videos to help you

save time

and to save money and which is also the

reason why we created this one hour long
