Unless they identify their problems and make some changes, I give them a year at most. Hate to see anyone fail, but if you do not have a viable business plan, your restaurant will close. Like elsewhere in the country, we see restaurants come and go. I had friend who started a cafe, he is a great chef. He spent 8 months remodeling the place, and he wound up with no money in reserve to operate. He lasted about 90 days. He got great reviews but kept running out of product every day. It was $300,000 lesson for him.
