Diners think that it must be exciting and fun to own a restaurant. You know the truth.
It’s a business with brutally long hours, high failure rates, ongoing staffing issues, and tough licensing and health regulations. We work with many of the most successful restaurateurs, franchise owners and food service organizations in MD, VA and DC to form, expand and protect their businesses. We can help you at every step: from the acquisition of liquor licenses to setting up policies for managing hourly staff. You can rely on our experience as you choose a location and negotiate a lease, respond to noise abatement issues, negotiate vendor contracts, comply with state and local health and safety requirements, or arrange financing with lending institutions or partners. With us as your behind-the-scenes support, you have more time and focus for dealing with the public aspects of managing your establishment.
