This case study looks at what it takes to create a start-up business in the restaurant industry; with the intention to find out what pitfalls and potential mistakes an individual should be aware of in order to have a successful operation. The details are based on the researchers' education, industry experience, and other people's research and knowledge that are found throughout the restaurant industry. This case study will help others understand what to expect when opening a new restaurant, and possibly some challenges that could be avoided when creating their own restaurant. There are lessons to be learned from this study, and recommendations will be given so that others will not make the same mistakes as The Glass Onion.
