Hello, my name is Andrei, I would like to open Sushi Bar/ Takeaway. I fell in love with sushi as soon as I tried them and started making them by myself at home and i want to share ex. Main Reason there is no Sushi culture in my Town, so I would like to fix that. Second reason - Make my dream come true;). Unfortunately, I lost my job a month ago and this gave me a huge kick, decided to give a try here before going to banks, and see humanity power (;
Since it's very hard to find a cheap solution to rent a property as the UK law is very strict, end up with one Building which is located very close to the town center, which is a brilliant location. Chatted with the owner and he told me that takeaway food should be fine with the council at this place. Since the preparation of sushi does not require many different types of equipment, basically all that I need is just a place where I'll be able simply to cook rice, couple refrigerator's to keep product's fresh, few chopping boards and that's it.
So, all together 8000£ for rent. 1k for fridges. Around 300-400£ for chopping Boards, knives, tongs, rolling mats. 200-300£ for Council tax, and rest 1000£ to start ordering fresh food from food suppliers.
Already got the takeaway boxes(around 600boxes). Should be fine for an opening, I believe. Already have some sketches for the future menu. Every single penny will means a lot to me. And I promise (if I will manage to open) for those who will help me with the funds, I will make for you free sushi, on your choice. Thank you for your time, and have a great day (;
