Running A Bar For Dummies (Paperback) by Foley, Ray
A bar or tavern can be an extremely profitable business, running in the black after only six months and recouping the initial investment within three to five years. But it can also be risky. This guide shows would-be bar owners how to avoid the pitfalls and turn their dream business into profitable enterprise. Full of checklists, timelines, and sample financials, it shows how to find a winning concept, define the target market, and choose a location--and then deal successfully with practical matters such as inventory, personnel, menus, budgeting, and liquor licenses.
