Opening a new restaurant can be a risky business venture, but with the right planning, financing and plenty of hard work it's definitely doable. Owning a successful restaurant could be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life.

Final Project- to Open or Not to Open That Is the Question

...Problem #1: To Open or Not to Open – That is the Question! While vacationing in Thailand, Steve and Linda fell in love with Thai food. Their hometown does not have a Thai restaurant, so Steve and Linda planned to open one. Linda is a chef and Steve would quit his job to run the “business” side of the restaurant. Steve found an empty restaurant for lease with seven tables that would seat four each. The restaurant would serve dinner only (no lunch) Tuesday – Saturday, and Linda is planning on having two seatings per evening. They will close two weeks a year for vacation. The Thai loving couple has come up with the following estimates: Average Revenue, including beverages and dessert $ 45 per meal Average cost of food $ 15 per meal Chef’s (Linda) and dishwasher’s salaries $ 61,200 per year Rent for building and equipment $ 4,000 per month Cleaning costs $ 800 per month Replacement of dishes, glasses, etc. $ 300 per month Utilities, advertising, telephone $ 2,300 per month Requirements: 1) Compute the annual breakeven number of meals and Sales Revenue for the restaurant: Total Expense per year = 61,200+12*(4000+800+300+2300) = $150,000 Contribution margin per meal = 45-15 = $30.00 Breakeven number of meals = $150,000/30 = $5,000.00 Contribution margin ratio= $30/$45 = 0.67 Breakeven number of sales = $150,000/.67 = $223,880.60 2) Compute the number of meals needed to earn......

An advertisement or Ad is anything that draws good attention towards these things. It is usually designed by an identified sponsor, and performed through a variety of media.

Bunn-O-Matic,l wherein the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals held that a coffee maker manufacturer did not have a duty to warn consumers that its coffee would be served at 180 degrees, and that the coffee maker was not defectively designed. The decision, which affirmed a lower court's entry of summary judgment in favor of the coffee maker manufacturer, is consistent with a majority of courts, which have held in recent years that such claims leave no issue of material fact for trial.' However, not every jurisdiction has routinely dismissed these "coffee" cases. In fact, McMahon referred to Nadel v. Burger King,3 which held that a products liability claim for excessively hot coffee was......
