Beautifully written article, How to Close a Restaurant

 

I remember reading the reviews and mentally adding this to my list should I return to England.

@liuzhou Thanks for sharing. I remember watching him through the series in 2010. I honestly had him tagged as a winner. He has popped up as a judge in subsequent years. What a lesson. D

In the study several years ago that refuted the apocryphal assumption that "90% of restaurants fail..." the authors noted that many of the restaurants (and startups in general) that do close are successful and profitable, but their owners simply can't keep up the pace.

 

In my own case my restaurants closed involuntarily, but there was little prospect for me to grow past the point of working 100 hours/week all season long and in retrospect I'm not sure how much longer I'd have continued to do it.
