There are two suggestions that I can make that will help:
- Step 1: Work in a restaurant to learn what it is all about. Many people have become successful restaurant owners by first working with someone in a successful restaurant, becoming the best employee possible, and ending with possible results: not only will you gain much valued experience but,
- some have become partners (part owners) because the owner valued their skills and experience and
- some have had the business turned over to them when the owner decided to open an additional unit or decided that it was time to retire and turn the business over to a valued person.
- Step 2: Contact SCORE ( the Service Corp of Retired Executives), a free service of the Small Business Administration offering free consultation and workshops by retired people who have been in related businesses through which you can learn the necessary steps to establish and grow a successful business. You can find them on the internet. They have offices in many cities across the US.
