New York is probably one of the crowdest marketplaces for restaurant owners. The vibrant and challenging chefs, the exquisite cuisine, and the high demand for novelty make this city an actual restaurant arena.
It’s no secret that people from all over the world are hurrying to New York just to taste the latest food trends. The demand for always innovative service leaves no room for mistakes – and every chef knows it well.
Unless you’re ready to take a leap and continually learn and experiment, there’s no place for you on New York food scene. For the rest of you, here’s how you can stand out in a competitive marketplace.
It may sound intimidating for younger chefs to go straight into the fight with esteemed New Yorker masters. However, if you want to be on their spot one day, first you need to be clear on one thing – your skill. Be sure in what you know and always be learning. Trying out new things will make your mind growing. Don’t forget to practice things you already know because the practice makes the habit.
Obvious things can be done by everyone, from beginner to an expert chef. But the real mastery comes with the knowledge of finding the new ways to solve existing problems. The best way to trigger the creativity is to reduce your options. In situations where you don’t have much to choose, your mind will have to find the ways to work with the things you got at your disposal. Eventually, that will lead to finding new ways of problem-solving which are a valuable asset for restauranteurs.
It’s true that practice makes perfect, but you cannot learn and grow if you’re not making mistakes. However, most beginner chefs are afraid of failing – they feel the pressure of the competitive market on their shoulders and don’t want to claim their loss. Remember that many master chefs had failed dozens of times before they succeeded. Embrace the failure as something that will help you not only to grow but also to focus more clearly on your goal.
It’s hard to find your voice, especially in a crowded marketplace like New York.
That’s why you need to find something that will help you distinguish from the noise. What’s one thing your restaurant can offer? Is it truly unique and life-changing? Find out and turn it into your asset – that will give you leverage from day one.…
Opening a restaurant is an exciting event in an owner’s life, regardless if it is your first one or not. The feeling that you are on track to create something great and be able to share it with your guests is an inspiring thing.
There are certainly a lot of stress that comes with the restaurant opening. One of the major things every restaurant owner is worried about is – budget. That’s why we decided to gather useful, low-cost ideas that will help you to decorate the interior and exterior of your new restaurant!
If your budget cannot cover the expenses of a professional decorator, you need to be creative. There are several ways you can spend less money on interior design and still come out with a quality service.
One way to find the affordable solution to creating a restaurant is to look on websites that promote freelance services, like Upwork or Freelancer. You can find talents that will do the job remarkably, but with less cost than a professional designer.
Do you have a friend that has a taste for design? If you do, ask him/her for a favor to help you develop your restaurant. It could be a perfect idea because you would have a more trusting relationship with your friend than with some random person.
There is an excellent chance that your friend designer will be able to understand your financial position more accurately than someone whom you hired to do a job for a fee. Plus, if that’s a terrific friend of yours, he/she will be able to translate your ideas more precisely, giving you the design that you’d wish for.
In case you can’t find a freelancer, there’s always an option to go with a local design studio. Firstly, they’ll probably understand your needs better than a big studio (because of their business profile), and they are more flexible in regards to fees and ideas. Smaller studios usually employ guerilla tactics which are known for their low investments-high return profile. It could be a win-win situation if you find a studio that knows what they’re doing.…
