Recommended Posts

 

I go to The Burger Joint now

 

Where's that at?  One of our relatives works in IT park and said theres alot of bad rumors about Army-Navy, probably just rumors but still a bit unsettling.

just what part of NO do you not understand ? 

Take your money to the casino.  More fun and better odds. 

Never gotten my order nearly that fast.  Did you pay extra for 'same day service?'  Don't remember them having music, maybe they turn it up when thtey see you coming?  Hahaahaha  Been a while since I'

Depends!  On a lot of things before a general NO is the word.  Does the individual want to have a money making concern OR a hobby for something to do?  What is his speciality?  Does he want to go into business with a "Partner" he knows only for a short period of time (danger)? Also a REAL restaurant where Quality FOOD is served with drinks if you want them OR a Pub with Grub?  Does he have a way to get staff who KNOW how to work in a restsaurant AND have good customer skills and can THINK!  Can he get a location that is good - NOT down some small side streen no one can find. For example a GOOD GREEK restaurant at a price the common man can afford I think would go over well.  Likewise a GOOD Mexican restaurant although there may be one already.  A REAL good Vietnamese restaurant I am sure would go over well - REAL is the word - not what is passed off as Vietnamese most places here.  Check the market and do your research.  I feel QUALITY FOOD and PRICE THE COMMON MAN CAN AFFORD.  Contradiction in terms as it is very hard to get REAL quality such as Lamb at a price that is affordable.  For example there is a certain pub from Ireland who I guess serves OK food but I was in there once and saw the prices and never again.  I can afford it but choose not to go there because I feel the prices are out of line. 

 

SO let's not say NO untill the above is investigated.  Would LOVE to see a well located and medium priced Vietnam or Greek place that serves the REAL food of those countries.

A good greek restaurant??????? :ROFLMAO:

prissier????

I think perhaps he means a patisserie but then again what would I know? My formal chefs training was in Australia so that was probably a "waist" of time too.

I want to open a pizza place, in the US you could buy the dough, sauce, cheese and pepperoni they use to make pizza's at Sams club, I did that for a while in my store and it went over pretty good, now if only I could get S&R to do the same thing...

 

Spent along time managing McDonalds and Pizza Hut, some of my best memories come from that time of my life...  

 

Wish your friend the best of luck, honestly if I had the money to lose to give it a shop I'd love to open a hibachi grill style restaurant or a teriyaki restaurant or papa johns or something, I don't have the money too though so just a dream.  Wanted to do it in the US too but the investment involved is retarded, at least here you can open up without alot of cash but you'll need alot to stay afloat long enough to get enough business.

 

 

The point everyone here is trying to make is tell your friend to get a big metal bucket, 5 gallons or so.

Dump all his money into it that he would use for his restaurant.

Douse it with a full can of lighter fluid.

Light it.

 

If your friend can't afford to do that with whatever money he'd invest here, then he shouldn't invest it here.  

i think after living in cebu a while the only real investment and you have to be married is to build rentals...

Food is a good business in the Philippines.... especially in the larger cities like Cebu, Davao, etc. 

 

Location, location, location is the most important!!! When he has found a great spot to open his resto then he can start thinking about permits etc

In Thailand you can buy a condo for 50,000$ and rent it out for 600$ per month furnished to a foreigner, thats a good investment, and what i'm planning to do. As far as I know, in my home country, it would cost me atleast 100,000$ of real estate investments to get 500$ per month rental income.

 

I haven't seen any 50$k at 600$ per month investment opportunities in Cebu yet. Maybe if you buy the land and build it yourself, it might be possible, but I doubt any Filipino will rent a 50,000$ unit for 600$ per month... so my eyes are more on Thailand when it comes to "investments".

It is simple. Whatever you want to make in one year....just spend double that amount.

We have one member here who started a restaurant, which seemed to be doing OK.

He put LOTS AND LOTS or work time and effort into it, and yet it didnt make money.

 

I reckon it would have done, eventually, if he could have held on long enough.

 

Ill health, (plus perhaps other reasons) meant that it closed.

 

If I was considering opening any type of eating establishment, I would talk to him and see what he could tell me.

I suggest your friend does the same.

 

wombat-no-more, is his nom-de-plume.

Burger Joint is alive and well. They moved when their lease came due for renewal & they got presented with a hefty increase.

Never gotten my order nearly that fast.  Did you pay extra for 'same day service?'  Don't remember them having music, maybe they turn it up when thtey see you coming?  Hahaahaha  Been a while since I've been there though.  Always seemed like amazingly slow service and there was something wrong with the buns, like there was some uncooked flour in them or something.  I go to The Burger Joint now.  Joint Burger with onion rings and large pepsi product around p135.  There's a place in IT Park called Army-Navy.  I'm told has good burgers but not for p135 I imagine.

 

Hehe, the "floured buns" are a bit unfamiliar maybe, but the wait is worthwhile for me personally.

Army & Navy is next to Yellow Cab? and Starbucks 2 at the high side of IT park uphill across the street behind "Chicken & Beer", which is located facing a far corner of the central green.

Army & Navy is even slower on service, twice I couldn't place an order within 15 minutes at a line-up, there are very few seats and several (call centre) smokers monopolizing the outside tables while waiting for their orders!

One day went there and only three customers in front of me, still waited 15 minutes since they decided it was "shift change" and "cashed-out" in front of me while I am waiting to place my order!

They won't last beyond initial novelty value cos they are expensive for call centre workers, also Koreans don't wait!

I would much rather make a short trip to KIwi Lodge!
