On a recent trip to Mexico I came across a restaurant with a concept that I think would do really well here in the states. I have no experience in owning or managing a restaurant. At this time, I'm not interested in the gritty details in restaurant management, I'd like to know where I could find people (or investors) who would be interested in something like this. Are there people out there looking for concepts to finance and/or start up restaurants? If so, how do I find them and present my idea to them?
A good buddy of mine and I are thinking of starting a business together. We are meeting tonight for a brainstorming session. The goal is just to start the dialog. We are going to take inventory of our strengths and weaknesses and start to throw ideas out there to research in the coming weeks. What are some good things to discuss in this very preliminary meeting? What are some good ways to make sure we make the most of our time tonight?
