What would be some advice on starting my own cafe with friends and family?

In the future after I get all my culinary training and more experience I want to be able to start my own cafe. I would be an owner of the cafe and a chef in the kitchen. I want to make a cafe that has one separate kitchen for normal foods and desserts and the other kitchen where I would make food and desserts that are gluten and dairy free. #culinary #cooking #chef #business

Hassan’s Answer

You're in the right track by getting culinary training and then real world experience. You really want to get the complete restaurant experience including managing one and its finances. Getting this experience will also help you save money that you'll need to start your own.

Keep in mind that the restaurant business can be very challenging and low profit. Research says that the majority of restaurants fail within 5 years and so you want to ensure you fully understand the whole business before opening one.

Thank you comment icon Hi Anthony! I see you’ve mentioned some things about family and friends, but I’m having some trouble figuring out how it relates to the process of starting a cafe. Could you clarify what you mean in your answer? I want to make sure the Student understands what you are recommending she do in order to open a cafe. Thanks so much in advance!

Brianna’s Answer

I think this is a cool idea! Some advices on being an owner and the chef of the kitchen would be thinking about how to balance both jobs at once. They can both be very demanding and takes a lot of management skills, so I think having a good support system from you employees (friends and family) would be important. At the same time, there would need to be a lot of considerations when it comes to have a family owned business, especially when it comes to work ethics and finances. A question to consider would probably be how you plan on separating family relations with professional relations, as the owner of the cafe.

Hi Alyssa. I think opening a cafe with your friend is a good idea. You would need to go to college and get your business degree than you'll need to plan ahead and get information about where you want your cafe and who you want working there. Than you need to think about pay rate and buying things that you and your friend are going to need to buy when opening this cafe. Don't stop doing what you love because I believing you that you will make this cafe happen.
