I am planing on starting my own restaurant and i was wondering if anyone has any advice on different ways to make it work or maybe you can help me find out what doesnt work. How much did it cost to start up and how long did it take to make a profit? How long did it take you to pay off a loan and how did you go about getting one? How long did it take before your restaurant was running itself? Any advice you can give would help me so much and i would be greatful to learn from someone living my dream.
