Inner City Volunteer Chef

Well hello fellow foodies.

The actual real property is on a 5 year lease, the cafe is equipped with albeit small, a full commercial kitchen. There is also a very nice large mobile kitchen to compliment the whole package.

I know the average daily gross and the owner will show us the books but he is open to lease or sell and wants us to make him an offer. The business runs fine as is but the owner wants to be… Continue

How do you turn a Coffee House into a Small Foodie Cafe?

Yesterday we had a great afternoon with a potential partner that owns/operates a small coffee house. This gentleman roasts his own beans and has a nice small business with a drive up window and the usual muffins, cookies but not much at all for food. There is a full restaurant(albeit small)kitchen not being used. He also has a full mobile kitchen not being used at all so that would be part of this deal. My chef partner and I love doing fairs/festivals and concessions and this would be perfect… Continue

We really look for experience in both management and restaurants but have hired candidates with one experience in only one of the categories.
We do not usually have much lunch business, with the exception of our downtown locations, so our managers work primarily dinner and late night shifts.
Hope this information helps!
