Have any of us here worked for owners who really shouldn't be in this industry? I have. In the last few years, I have worked more in the consulting field, helping new restaurant ventures get off the ground with assistance in programming POS, training staff and getting floor plans right, marketing etc. The amount of people who think they can open a restaurant in their vision with absolutely no experience or, indeed, business knowledge is staggering. I worked with a couple, where he was unable to be listed as an owner in any way because he was an uncleared bankrupt, and he was spending her divorce settlement because he wanted to be a hotshot restaurateur and she wanted to appease her chef wannabe son. Guess how that worked out. Then, recently, I was seconded to a venue that was in a really awkward place in town- no foot traffic, nothing around except the bus station, trying to do fine dining. The owner had an amazing wine collection, which was supposed to be a cornerstone of the business, and would have been if he had just been able to stop drinking it. Please share your stories, because this is just for laughs.
