Open your eyes, but do not let people to discourage you!
True, the owners should be present as much as possible, but my son, who ran
a bar in Tel-Aviv, had a different experience. While, at first, both he
and his partner were there all night long, but later they started taking
turns, and be there only a part of the time. They just found good shift
managers (the bar was open from 9PM to the last customer). If they were
forced to close it was because of harassment by the Municipality. They
were there 11 years - a long time for that type of business in this country.
Yes, it is hard work and constant worry, but may not be as bad as Bob makes
As I've already said, I wish you success!
