Hello! Greetings from New Brunswick, Canada. My name is Elizabeth and I am new to this great site.
I / we opened our Deli restaurant 5 years ago and since then have added an authentic Tuscan style Italian restaurant.
We have a unique model: We are a Deli during the day (6 days / wk) and an Italian restaurant during the evening (4 nights / wk). This is a model that has worked for us and we created it because it was too expensive to open a separate location, given we own our current building (margins are greater at night).
Things of interest are cooking; catering; appetizers; trendy new things as they relate specifically to our type of food / service.
I am very interested in a school or opportunity to make new appetizers that appeal to both a meat and potatoes crowd and then also turning it up a notch or two. If anyone knows of a great learning facility / school / classes in North American that offer such classes, I would be interested to learn about them.
As a business owner saving money and making money are my other areas of interest. Only two toggles in a successful business; sales & expenses.
I look forward to learning and contributing with others on this site.
