    If you have good cash to start this business then I will consider it lucrative. However you can start small and grow big. But have in mind that the location of tour restaurant has a lot role to play as it determine if you will be having as much customers that can make the business grow or not.
    Another thing is the standard of the restaurant, for a proper build restaurant, people will find it more comfortable coming to your restaurant compare with the rate of poor build up restaurant.

    Another thing to consider is the price of food. When your food is affordable customers will likely want to eat from your restaurant, with this your can retain customers that will keep coming. Everyone like cheap food.

    Quality of cooking: No one wants to eat poison even for free. To gain customers to your restaurant you need quality cook that will handle things the right way. Make sure your food is not only sweet but has a very good taste. Your cook must maintain good hygiene.

    Respect your customers: Respect your customers so they will feel welcome anytime of the day. The way you treat your customers tells if they will return or not. You know that one customer can bring hundred of customers and with one customer millions of customers can go away. So respect every of your customer even if young or old.

    Check for down side: Always be in search for what makes your competitors more than tours, what are the new upgrade they made. Be careful not to go into bad thing because of customers or you will live to regret it.

    The amount to start restaurant business depend on your budget. One can even start the business with just 10k. The standard you want and your budget has a lot role to play.

    With less than a million naira (N1,000,000), you can start a restaurant but if you plan on running something bigger and costlier, you will need more than a million naira.
