Courage is important because restaurants have the highest rate of failure of any business. Banks will not in many cases lend to people looking to start a restaurant because the odds of failure are staggering. You will need alot of courage because you probably will need your own money, a private investor, angel investor, or pay a very high interest rate through a lender that specializes in restaurants. Most of the restaurants I see fail because right from the start the service stinks. I just went to a grand opening of a restaurant and had to wait for 30 minutes for my food..uhhhh well guess what.they went out of business. Good quality healthy food, good service, a menu that doesnt have a gazillion options on it and not too expensive, a good theme, great location, outdoor dining with a view, area where people have disposable income and can afford to go out to eat..if you have all those things you definately will make it.
