My Establishment

a) The name of my establishment is La Beach Café
b) My establishment is located on the main road directly across from Brighton Beach
c) The location is near a beach so the theme is obviously a beach theme. It is targeted for all ages and families that spend a day at the beach and are hungry afterwards. Some of the foods served are Burger and Chips, Steak sandwiches, fish and chips, a variety of different seafood feasts and many more. The restaurant can fit up to maximum 40 people
d) Sketch of the restaurants layout:

a) I have chosen the location near a beach as the café has a beach theme and it obviously needs to be near a beach. Being at a beach eating beach food clearly makes sense. Being at a beach and eating Chinese food is not a good idea. The colours are all bright and give you a sunny day type of feel. People love being at a beach on a hot sunny day, bright colours will make that feeling even stronger. All these elements contribute to the impact of my business as they all help emphasise its theme and what the establishment is aiming at.

3. Recipe for chicken burger:
1 single chicken breast fillets
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 hamburger buns, split, toasted to serve
1 lettuce, leaves separated, washed, shredded
2 Pieces of Tomato
1 Piece of onion
1. Mix all the patty ingredients thoroughly, leaving the salt for after the patties are cooked if you prefer.
2. Cook on low heat under the grill, on the barbecue or in a pan until cooked.
3. Place Chicken in between 2 buns
4. Add vegetables onto sandwich.
This recipe is suitable as a dish on my menu as a chicken burger can be eaten anywhere and can be enjoyed anywhere. At the beach it is also a great place to be eaten. Cooked well and served with great sides it strongly deserved to be on the menu.

Question 4: My establishment will have a massive impact on the local society and the beach life. If my establishment runs well and I’m guessing it will, all the locals will have a place they can casually eat at and dine at. Being located on a main road and near the beach the place will need to be kept very clean. It’s not like in a shopping centre where there are cleaners that will clean around. It is all up to the shop owner to do it. That’s why I will need to purchase recycling facilities and cleaners that will clean up and keep the place hygienically healthy.
During the day I will not need to use strong lights as the sun light should light the place up, but come night time the lights will be on. It kind of balances the electricity being used which will not mean a generally high bill. But using all the cooking equipment air conditioning etc. could push the bills up higher. To run a business you need to be wise and not use unnecessary things to limit the amount of money you spend. Running a business means making money not losing money.
