Restaurant Success By The Numbers PDF Free Download

Posted : admin On 1/10/2022

Restaurant Success by the Numbers was quite good for the how-to-start-a-restaurant genre, but that still doesn't earn it more than 3 stars. This is quite a weak genre, by my reckoning. These people aren't writers, I suppose, just. Restaurant Success by the Numbers A Money-Guy's Guide to Opening the Next New Hot Spot Roger Fields Every restaurant — from a cupcake food truck to a 5-star celebrity-chef experience — is a complex system that most of us take for granted.

Lekker met verhaaltjes van mensen met ervaring en je kan met dit boek per hoofdstuk je restaurant op bouwen. Wel echt verouderd.
Restaurant Success by the Numbers was quite good for the how-to-start-a-restaurant genre, but that still doesn't earn it more than 3 stars. This is quite a weak genre, by my reckoning. These people aren't writers, I suppose, just good restauranteurs. Maybe the two don't overlap.
You'll find out immediately that Fields thinks like an auditor when managing his restaurants. Everything is well tracked and organized. I found the book very strong on those points -- advise about financial planning, inve

Some good ideas at the beginning to get me started on my grand plan, but the editing really sucks in this book, which is kinda troubling. I also didn't read a lot of the middle because it's too practical at the moment, but maybe I'll come back to it after I get my financing in order (ha!)....more

Good book if you know pretty much nothing about restaurant business. More suitable if you are planning to open one in USA but overall gives good tips. For who is already in the business, i can assure you that we have done many mistakes he also made. Most of the things he says you would know but it is always good to consolidate your knowledge and confront yourself with someone who has been there for longer and has done better than many. Oh one more thing. It is not very recent so i can assure you...more

#onedayonebookchallange 🖤 ini buku pertama yang selesai di 2020 yehee~~
Agak lama dibaca karena banyak banget taking notes untuk implementasi nanti. Beberapa chapter yang unrelevant & ngulang chapter sebelumnya emang aku skip karena contoh bisnisnya di Amerika bukan di Indonesia which is beberapa business flownya beda banget dan nggak bisa diimplementasikan.
Buku ini menarik karena ditulis dari sudut pandang akuntan. Dan kabar baiknya business flow yang ditulis di buku ini udah kita implementasika

Admittedly, a little bit dry, but a great operations perspective on the restaurant industry. Helpful if you're immersed in the world of finance, rounding out your understanding of the industry beyond margins, top line and growth rates. Helpful if you're thinking to start your own restaurant, particularly to address things that you wouldn't know you don't know. Only thing worth considering at this point is based on the publication date (with no additions within the last two or three years), socia...more

This is a good book for people who have no experience in the restaurant industry. Basically if you need to read this book DO NOT open a restaurant unless you have somebody working with you that has no reason to read this book. The author isn't really very in touch with recent dining trends in major metropolitan areas and the people he references are similarly not very current. Anybody who has knowledge enough to open a restaurant and be successful will have no need to read this book as much of i...more

For anyone thinking about opening their own place the book is very useful. I like that it still encourages you to do it, but reminds that you need to do your homework. Especially useful for someone who never worked in the kitchen. Though it is aimed at Americans, so usefulness is a little limited for the rest of the world
Well the book offers some eye-opening insights, but its writing needs lots of improvement: too much repetition, some ideas are repeated for i don't know dozens of times, to the point it becomes tiring to continue reading. There might be also a few calculation errors, but that's not too big a deal for me personally. However, the business insights well worth the effort....more
Picked this up to learn about accounting/financial metrics in the restaurant industry. Book delivered on that and on several other important points. I disliked his managerial and advertising sections, very out of touch with how small businesses should actually run.
Excellent source of information, though in need of an update and considerable contextualization by the reader. I would take the outline of the book as a guide for what you need to think through in the industry and then contextualize each topic for your market.
Very useful info

Very worthwhile book about how to open and manage a restaurant.
To give you a flavor for the book, let me quote (partially) his rules for starting a restaurant:
■ Rule #1: As you move ahead with your plans, keep one foot firmly planted in the realities of business and the other in your passion for your restaurant.
■ Rule #2: Consider starting small even if you've had previous experience as a chef or a manager. Starting small will require much less start-up capital than starting on a grand scale,

A money-guy's guide to opening the next hot spot. This is a book that will have you looking around your frequent food haunts with fresh eyes -- now capable of spotting the thoughtful and not so thoughtful decisions on lighting, equipment, staffing, and so much more in action.
Yet, despite the experience of real-life start-ups (including some of Roger Field's own). This is not the realistic dreamers guide to setting the table up for lasting success as advertised. Instead many of the sections are

Very comprehensive book all in all of restoz
A very good eye opening book to someone who has no idea about restaurants. You feel like an expert after finishing reading the book. The only downturn though is that it might freak you out and paralyze you from starting anything due to the very accurate calculations down to the point zero something cents.

insightful, common sense. breaks down the restaurants business so you can make better decisions about what you want to do.
Good solid presentation on opening a restaurant. Neither over-encouraging nor discouraging, the book provides a lot of clear thinking and a few nuggets of hard-to-find facts.

Restaurant Success By Numbers Pdf

This is the first book I purchased when researching whether I wanted to open the restaurant I've conceived in my mind for a number of years. This guy really covers about as much as you can cover in three hundred pages. I've been a CPA, myself, for 25 years and I've owned more than a dozen businesses besides my CPA firm during those years. I learned several things that are specific to the restaurant business and I KNOW that if you have never owned your own business before this will be an invaluable tool.
He gives you the good, bad and the ugly. He doesn't try to sway you toward opening a restaurant, nor does he advise against it. He just tells you many of the pitfalls of poor planning and poor management that could cost you tons of money in the short and long-term.
I highly recommend this book if you are even thinking of opening a restaurant of any concept!
