Recently while searching the web for ideas, hisotry, information etc. pertaining to my restaurant idea, I found a restaurant that was identical to what I want to do. My business plan is 80% done, menu, concept, decor, etc. and this place is identical. It is very discouraging and exciting. First, I am excited to see that my concept works. This place is in N.Y.C. is doing great. I am in Los Angeles, so I am not concerned about stealing customers from eachother. However, it is the same name that I was planning on using, the same web address, decor and menu. The only difference is that the team at the N.Y.C. resturant, are twice my age, have loads of exerience over me, and the kind of financing I could only get if I married Bill Gates` daughter. I am completely discouraged and fearful that anything I do now will be considered a knock-off. When I read the bio`s of his team, the only person they are missing is Jack Welch. Anybody out their been in a similar situation. RyanGromfin2007-10-3 17:54:4
