The restaurant offers many different kinds of specialized coffees, teas, a full service bakery, and a variety of fushion cuisine on the menu. The restaurant was first opened in !"# and it was a local hotspot for many years.

$nfortunately, business has been steadily declining over the last five years. The business was partially affected by the poor economy but mostly due to the fact that the operation has been outdated. There are no computers in the store and all ordering takes place manually. The previous owner had a terrific memory and knew all of their customers by name, but unfortunately, none of this information is located anywhere in the restaurant. The recipes for most of the items on the menu are also stored in your chefs memory. $nfortunately the chef is getting old and he is ready to retire. %nventory is tracked in a note pad, along with employee payroll, and marketing coupons. The restaurant uses very little marketing e&cept word of mouth, and essentially still operates the same as it did in !"#. You see a lot of opportunities in this business and have an ambitious goal. You would like to get your return in ' years and would also want to turn this restaurant into a successful national franchise operation in the near future.
