Success in the restaurant business is about more than just food
You could have a modern restaurant setup where a lot of detail has been invested in every part of that restaurant. This could include a modern kitchen with all of the latest technology in cooking appliances as well as a chef that could literally pull a rabbit out of the hat when it comes to preparing exotic dishes. You could have decorations and the kind of setup which ensures an enjoyable atmosphere and despite all of these benefits you may find that you simply do not draw the crowds that you were hoping for.
