Restaurant Smart Start Course is Tuesday, September 21

SALISBURY, MD---Starting a restaurant involves knowing some important industry specifics.  Whether you are dreaming of starting your own restaurant or have one underway and want greater insights for success, "Restaurant Smart Start" is a training course for you.  The course is offered by Salisbury University's Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Tuesday, September 21, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on the second floor of The Commons. This session is specially tailored for the prospective or new-to-the-business restaurant owner/manager, although seasoned restaurateurs may find some new insights as well. The focus is on important factors for success in a retail restaurant operation, including restaurant types, location/traffic access, managing perishable inventory, menu and price planning, vendor and employee relations, marketing, what constitutes true customer care in a food service establishment, and more. Casey Willson, a 30-year veteran of retailing, education, and business in the Washington D.C., Metro area presents.  The course does not cover the generic issues of starting a business, such as legal entity, licensing, tax registration and setting up books, which are covered in the regular "Smart Start Your Business." The fee is $25, and includes all materials. The registration deadline is September 17. Call Terry Cohen at 410-543-6516, or email to register. For more information about SBDC programs, visit
