So, you think you want to open a restaurant or food business? Before you pour your life savings -- and then some -- into the idea, make a much smaller investment.
The Cook Street School of Fine Cooking, 1937 Market Street, has teamed up with the Accounting and Business School of the Rockies to present a new week-long course covering all aspects of the business side of owning a restaurant, franchise or catering company. It isn't cheap -- but it could save you from making some very expensive mistakes. The first class in the course kicks off today, and Cook Street will be offering another session in June. Get more information at www.cookstreet.com or by calling 303-308-9300.
