Re:Need Advice for Approaching a Bar Owner
#1, find out why they are not serving food. Just because the bar is busy doesn't make it a good place for food. People are a lot more knowledgeable about food now a days. They pick a bar, then food so they can get the best of both. If you plan on doing food, plan on doing killer food that people will come for. I have seen to many bars, offer food just to offer food, no one leaves home for that kind of food. All owners what to know "what can you do for me" tell the bar owner, you want to build the food and make it a place that is known for the food, this will raise bar sales. This is a two way street, he should be able to help you get started, low rent, the better you do, the more he gets. This way if it doesn't work out, it will not cost you an arm and a leg............make sure the rent includes, gas, electric, telephone, health permit, and insurance.
