Restaurant Management

My Distance Learning College


The modern trend is to make more use of eating out facilities, especially when both partners in a marriage are working. It is likely that this trend will continue, which will create a more competitive environment, but it also means that there will be more opportunities for those interested in starting a restaurant.

It takes more than dreams to succeed in any business, and restaurants are no exception. You need creativity, business knowledge and have to be prepared to work extremely hard.

Even if you package all these ingredients into a concept, it may still not work. As in most businesses there are many who fail, but there are also those that make a great success. While opening a restaurant is risky, the return can be high, as they often are when you take a chance.

Fortunately there are ways to increase you chances of success. The purpose of this course is to teach the things that reduce the chances of failure, and if you learn the fundamentals, the chances of success are that much brighter.

This course includes topics such as:

  • The basic principles of management
  • Types of ownership
  • The location of the business
  • Restaurant layout
  • Restaurant equipment
  • Inventory and stock control
  • Financial analysis
  • Personnel, food and customer service
  • Financial management
