This course looks at how to turn your dream into reality and understand better, how to work methodically through the requirements.

First, we look at the foundations of establishing a successful hospitality business -
- the concept
- the important sales to ingredient cost rations
- staffing levels
- profitability behind these costs

SETTING UP
We look at key information regarding the physical setup of a business. Starting with important information from Auckland Council, or your local council, about zoning for a location and approvals for alterations to a building, formulating a food control plan, getting approval for an alcohol licence.
We then look at the equipment you may need to use and commercial kitchen food safety requirements - from refrigeration and extraction systems to types of ovens and coffee machines, flooring and much more.

HOW TO COST
We will discuss look models of how to calculate what you should sell your product for - the retail margins, as well as the cost breakdown as well, has how you are going to pay your self.
Lots to think about and learn in this one day workshop.
Celia Hay, director of the New Zealand School of Food and Wine and hospitality entrepreneur having established 10 different business and has a wealth of knowledge about how to establish and then grow a business. In 2020, Celia Hay and the New Zealand School of Food and Wine will celebrate their 25th Anniversary.
