Kabsabet Dishes will be a partnership operated by Monica and Chris Leopold and will be located in downtown Los Angeles. Monica is a former endurance athlete who studied nutrition science in college. She then spent a decade preparing meals for athletes in training camps across the world. Her travels, particularly all over Africa, exposed her to a variety of recipes that she later perfected. On the other hand, Chris is a former athlete who has a Culinary Degree from Pretoria University. He has worked in a number of five-star hotels around the globe and is, therefore, very experienced.
The cost of opening the restaurant will be $250,000. $100,000 will go to equipment, furniture, and fittings. Notably, the space where the restaurant is to be located requires renovation that will cost $30,000 and will take about a month to complete. The couple will subcontract this work. $20,000 will go towards compliance, encompassing licenses, a certificate from the city’s public health board, and a letter of compliance from the local authority. Inventory will take up $20,000 and marketing will require $30,000. The remaining amount will be the working capital and will help meet the day-to-day expenses of the outlet.
The restaurant will open seven days a week and will run from seven o’clock in the morning to ten o’clock at night and will offer breakfast, lunch, and supper in multiple shifts. Chris will be in charge of the schedules and will arrange them in such a way that will allow him to raise and lower the hourly workforce depending on the good the traffic.
