There are many aspiring entrepreneurs who want to open a pho restaurant. And I'm here to help.

You may have some experience in the restaurant business, have dabbled with making pho at home, or maybe you have absolutely no idea where to start. Then you have come to the right place for solid information and advice on how to get in the pho restaurant business.

Running a pho restaurant is not easy work.

  •  It's about long hours.
  •  It's about satisfying very demanding customers.
  •  Then after that, there are tough competition and rising food costs to deal with.
  •  And don't forget employee turnovers too.

You probably don't believe the above if you've never worked in foodservice before. Or you may be thinking: "Naaa, it's not that bad! I eat at restaurants all the time and it looks easy enough."

Well ask any real owner and he/she will tell you all of the above and more, especially all the things a restaurateur has to do that's not visible to the customers. Regardless, the fact is running a successful restaurant is very much achievable and it can definitely be learned.
