Day 3

Posted: June 11, 2010 in Trev in LA Boot Camp

Through the past 3 days at Sushi Central I have learned more than can be put into words on a computer screen. It has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences that I’ve ever had. For the past year we have talked so much about our restaurant and all of the things we have wanted to do, but now I am living it. I’m living the life of a restaurant entrepreneur. I feel the stress and fatigue, but also the joy and pride that comes with the job. I have already spent hours breaking down fish, washing buckets, cooking rice, and rolling sushi. I now know what it truly means to start a restaurant. And more importantly I know what it will take, on the restaurant front, to start Sabi Sushi. After each member of our team has trained under Phillip, we will have the knowledge and experience to actually pull this off, the right way. To build a sky scraper you have to have to start with a foundation, ours couldn’t be stronger. However, simply restaurant and sushi knowledge but this isn’t the end, we have a few more areas to tie up before we are ready to fly:

  • Cash: Entrepreneurs will all admit that cash is king. Money is what can make or break a concept. No matter how great the idea is, there will be no success without sufficient funding.
  • Business Experience: We need a mentor who can show us how to grow a business. We have everything in place to make this first restaurant amazing but soon we will need the funding/experience to take that success of the first location and reproduce it across the nation. And to do that we need a business man behind us.
  • Real Estate
  • Legal
  • Marketing

This list goes on. We would not be in the position that we are today without the Duke Family behind us. It was because of Duke that the idea was born. It was because of Duke that the idea was pursued. And it will be because of Duke that Sabi Sushi will become perfection in the restaurant industry. Please let us know if you can help us in anyway.
