As amusing as the idea of ​​celebrity-owned restaurants may be, I think it’s pretty stupid. Listen. I know we all want to be the only friend who’s cute enough to have a place for friends and family to hang out, drink, and eat good food, but oh my gosh, why should all celebrity vanity projects be restaurants? You may just give as well I Money.

Why celebs Restaurants should be avoided

I want to be a successful business owner and not just a great actor, for example, but opening a restaurant is not the way to go. First, restaurant failure rates are high enough that you have a very good chance of failing within your first year. a a piece of toast (Restaurant Point of Sale Services Company), reports that restaurant failure rates hover around 30% during the first year of operation.

It’s already hard enough if your restaurant fails, but imagine that you’re a famous person whose new business venture took on massive bullshit. Humiliation would be very bad, considering that your reputation as a celebrity is already in the public eye. That can’t be fun, no matter who you are.

The many celebrity restaurants that failed

mashed has a list Failed celebrity restaurantsAnd, wow, there are some doozies out there. How did I not know that Steven Spielberg had a nautical themed restaurant called Dive! Specialized in submarine sandwiches (I can’t even make this up)? It originally started in Los Angeles in 1994, and closed its doors in 1999. (The outpost in Las Vegas, the only other, closed in early 2000s.)

Eve Lungoria had a few flop, Justin Timberlake wasn’t very good, and even J-Lo had one flip too (although that took a slow six years). I remember when Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy had a bar here in Chicago called Angels and Kings, which I always thought was kind of hilarious. (Its New York location has been closed due to minors drinking, NBC4 reported Back in 2009.)

I grudgingly admit that on rare occasions celebrities will jump in to save a company, just fine, like when Trey Parker and Matt Stone were Bought Casa Bonita. And if you want to Cooperation with a restaurantOh, that’s great, too. (Celebrity chefs get an exception mostly because it’s job-related.)

So, if you’re a celebrity, I’d probably suggest you sell Strange and Stupid things Like Gwyneth Paltrow While that? NBA star Jimmy Butler coffee gig Still going strong. Just, whatever you do, don’t go into the restaurant business. For your own good and us, toDedicate it to the professionals.
