there are success stories with absentee owners and present working owners. If you think you can do it all yourself, you cant. You are going to have to hire people depending on your volume. I have a 46 seat bbq restaurant and do a lot of take out. I have a working partner and I take off mondays. Every other day I am there from 11am - 11pm sometimes earlier if we are lucky. It is very rewarding if you can make people happy, but if you go into it with no restaurant knowledge you might be in for a big heart break. Be prepared to have a strong personality or the business can make you fold up!
