Frequently Asked Questions
Why is a good location so crucial?
Retail businesses, especially restaurants, have a very high failure rate in their first years of operation. Two studies, (Parsa, Self, King and Njite (2005) and Muller, Chris and Woods, Robert H. (1991)), estimate the failure rate of restaurants at just under 30% for the first year, reaching all the way up to 70% by the third year of operation. While there are several factors affecting the performance of a restaurant, its location is one of the most important factors in determining whether it will be a success or not.
