Default How to run a low-stress one-person restaurant...

Hi Millard,

Thanks for your brainstorming!

Here's the article I emailed out, for those who are interested... about a new way of running a "restaurant"...


How to run a low-stress one-person restaurant...

Can one person run a whole restaurant... and do all the jobs required in a restaurant? With low stress?

The answer is yes... Here's how...

With a regular restaurant, it's impossible, as you need a chef, and another person to welcome the customers, answer questions, and serve the food.

If the chef also welcomes new arrivals and serves the food too, he or she can probably only realistically run a one-table restaurant! (And even that would be difficult!)

Now, with the pandemic, has arisen a new form of restaurant - the delivery-only restaurant...

With a delivery-only restaurant, you still need more than one person... At least one person to take the orders and cook the food, and another to deliver it to the customers...

But there is now an even newer type of restaurant...

It's the pre-order delivery-only restaurant!

One example is the one-man restaurant, Jikoni Toledo.

This is a one-man restaurant, based in Toledo, Ohio, which serves cuisine from Kenya, East Africa.

To order from Jikoni Toledo, you need to order two days ahead. (Some dishes require a 24-hour marinade, but if a restaurant didn't have such dishes, it could probably cut it down to orders being required just one day ahead of delivery...)

The chef, Tom Otieno, can then prepare and cook the dishes ahead of time...

He can then deliver them to your address on your chosen date and time!

A person who wants to do this idea himself or herself will probably need access to a commercial kitchen in most places (which can be rented). You'll have to check your local government food sanitary regulations to confirm this (as regulations differ from place to place).

This approach gives you a real, and inexpensive, way to start your own restaurant, as a one-man or one-woman operation!

Another twist on the idea is to have only special dishes on different days... So, one day, you serve a particular dish. On another day, you serve a different specific dish.

This saves you from even having to cook different meals, as you just cook one big batch of one type of meal each day.

It also means your menu can effectively also have infinite variety over the course of time...

A great way to test out new dishes, and see how popular they are!
