I will need a fryer so the food that needs fried can be fried. The fryer will cost $4,000. I will also need an oven for the food, which needs to be cooked in the oven. The oven will cost $10,000. My decorations won’t be too terribly much because I am going recarpet the floors and find cool antiques from shops around the area. This will cost around $35,000. The floor plan with all the tables and booths

were in a good place, so I won’t need to put in any new tables. This will cost about $70,000 I will need to get all the supplies and food ordered before opening so I have food to work with. All the supplies will cost $50,000. Of course, this will be monitored when it arrived so I know what day it needs to be out by. I will need to purchase all my licensees and permits before I open, or I won’t be able to open. This will cost around $15,000. I will need to purchase insurance on my restaurant in case of a fire or other natural disaster, which will cost $20,000. This will also cover if I was robbed or someone destroyed my restaurant. This is very important because it will save me if something of the sort would happen. Beings the town of Oskaloosa isn’t the biggest or the nicest; I don’t need many signs in my restaurant. I will have a few signs in the very front of the restaurant, and the others will be in frames, which can be done myself. Advertising will have to be done in order to bring business to my restaurant. It won’t cost but $6,000 because I am doing it myself. I plan on signs around town, and also ads in the newspaper. I will go to local events and let everyone know about my restaurant. My friends and family will also help spread the word. Of course there will be costs that are unexpected. This will happen with every business someone will open. With all of these costs, I suspect it will be around $600,000 to open my restaurant. Licenses and Approvals As I stated above, the restaurant is in Oskaloosa, Iowa. There are state laws and local laws I must follow. In Iowa, I need to apply for a business identification card. This allows my restaurant to have a number and can be easily found by the government. I will also contact the Iowa Department of Public Health. They will be the ones to issue my food handler's license, which requires me to pass a written test. Once my restaurant is up

and running, inspectors from this department will come around for regular checks. If I don’t pass these checks, they can write me up and I could eventually lose my restaurant. I will also need a liquor license to sell the wine and beer I will sell. Without this I could easily go to jail and lose my restaurant in a blink of an eye. This is a mandatory thing and it’s not a law to mess with. I will also have to have an approved food source. An approved food source is a food item produced or prepared in a licensed establishment under the jurisdiction of a governmental entity. Restaurants must obtain their food items from approved food sources, such as licensed food processing plants, meat suppliers inspected and licensed by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS), or licensed grocery stores.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
