I'm looking to get my restaurant idea off the ground in the near future. I have tons of great experience in all facets of the restaurant, have several openings under my belt, have a proven track record of team building, great working knowledge of numbers, design, implementation, systems, etc.
In addition I have a great idea for a gourmet food powerhouse/factory. A very unique idea that bridges two cool cuisines, does so in a fun and exciting way, executes quickly and efficiently and best thing-all at a reasonable price.
I'm looking to take over a leasehold and try to minimize startup costs as well as general overhead. I've got a solid business plan, proven ability to make this happen and the willingness and dedication to do whatever it takes to succeed.
All I need is some help finding investors. I'm looking for $125k-$175k and haven't figured out what would be the best terms to attract someone: 30% in the restaurant? 80/20 NOI (Investor/Owner) until principal is repaid then switching until percentage is met?
Also it's very important to note the goal here is growth. This one store may not be the biggest cash cow but growing this concept (and the others I have) are very feasible and can make for an attractive detail.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!
