You need a solid, continuously visiting customer base. You need loyal customers who will build on word of mouth. Without constant customers, the restaurant will fail.

The key ones are locations, staffing requirements,choice of business name,brand placement,target market. All these must compliment each other in most aspects at least. you must also recognize what product you want to offer your clientèle.

Management and employees!! If you have "great" food and horrible service, no one will ever visit you. BUT if you have "good" food and award winning staff members, your good to go.

You must achieve the economies of scale by having at least 5 locations to spread the costs of certain overhead expenses. You must standardize all procedures and have a system of checks and balances to make sure all runs smoothly.
