Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Those contemplating becoming a restaurant owner will need information sources to help make the dream a reality, and one such source is this highly practical guide. Authors Rainsford, a professor at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration and the owner of a restaurant, and Bangs, a writer of small-business management books, describe the necessary steps to plan and manage the enterprise through the use of a case study for the fictional Stefanie's Restaurant. The authors cover such topics as evaluating the competition, buying equipment and supplies, hiring personnel, and finding the right location. Included are a sample business plan, the financing proposal, a glossary of restaurant terms, a list of resources, and worksheets for cash-flow projecting, credit inquiry, etc. This source should serve as a useful starting point for those wishing to be restaurant owners and a reference for those already in the business. Recommended to public libraries.-- Lucy Heckman, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, N.Y.
