Can't decide where to eat? Then start your own restaurant. The growth in small-scale eateries such as food vans, supper clubs and pop-up restaurants mean anyone with enough drive and desire can launch their own foodie haven. This day-long series of lectures from six inspiring and successful Londoners covers everything you need to know to get your kitchen up and running, from creating a unique concept and planning a menu to securing financing, attaining the necessary licenses, and recruiting, training and managing staff.
The course is curated and hosted by pop-up pioneer Stuart Langley, the brains behind the critically lauded Disappearing Dining Club, who will share his personal insight and professional experience to ensure you leave the course with a fully-formed plan for your delicious new venture.
Stuart Langley founded Disappearing Dining Club in 2010 after 15 years of running bars, restaurants and members clubs in London and overseas. The Club aims to bring "like-minded people together to enjoy great food, drink and good company in reclaimed or unusual private spaces in London." Alongside dinner dances and pop-up events, Stuart launched Back in 5 Minutes on Brick Lane in summer 2013.
