cuisine is diverse, as Russia is by area the largest country in the world.
Russian food derives its varied character from the vast and multi-cultural expanse of
Russia and it is necessary to divide Russian traditional cuisine and Soviet cuisine, which
has its own peculiarity. Russian food s foundations were laid by the peasant food of the
rural population in an often harsh climate, with a combination of plentiful fish, poultry,
caviar, mushrooms, berries, and honey. Crops of rye, wheat, barley and millet provided the
ingredients for a plethora of breads, pancakes, cereals, beer and vodka. Soups and stews
full of flavor are centered on seasonal or storable produce, fish and meats. This wholly
native food remains the staple for the vast majority of Russians.
We aim to be of particular interest to the students of Statesville University. The university
has a student population that exceeds 20,000 and growing by 15% each year. The
restaurant will be located one block away from the main campus. The area already has
three bars that have been thriving for the past 10 years.
The restaurant will also appear to the large local population and over 100,000 people live
within 5 miles of the Capital Russian Restaurant.
Each establishment has long lines waiting for entry each weekend. Recently, commercial
space has become available next to the campus when two businesses relocated. Capital
Russian Restaurant will consolidate this space into a 5,000 square foot restaurant.
The location is on a main street, the one that is most often used by students.
Once opened, Capital Russian Restaurant will have the exceptional management team to
guide its success. Capital Russian Restaurant's three owners, John Smith, Anne Jones, and
Jennifer Lane, have over 25 years of bar management experience between them. John has
been the manager of Capital Affair, the most popular bar in the university area, for the past
five years. Anne and Jennifer are co-owners of Mermaid, a popular downtown bar that has
dominated the city's club scene for the past four years.
Capitalize on excellent location opportunity.
Launch the venue with a highly publicized grand opening event in the spring of 201*.
Maintain tight control of costs, operations, and cash flow through diligent management
and automated computer control.
