Ask Dave

Open Restaurant With Two Friends?

Daniel's mom wants to open a restaurant as a partnership, but Dave thinks it's a recipe for disaster.

QUESTION: Daniel’s mom wants to open a restaurant with 2 friends. What’s the best way to do that?

ANSWER: Based on your story, sounds like it’s a disaster waiting to happen, because the only ship that won’t sail is a partnership.  Without a plan, any ship will sink.  Before getting wrapped up in the idea of running a restaurant, be sure you know as much as you can about what you're getting into, especially when friends are involved.
