I'm planning to make my own raw restaurant here in Barcelona. It would be the first of its sort in Spain.
Does anyone have any idea how a business like this works? I want to hear as many viewpoints as possible before I make my first steps. Obviously, the first thing I need to work out is if it's really going to work in Barcelona (are they just not ready yet?). I think it will, but I need to study it a lot.
Added to this is the challenge of making raw recipes which people really enjoy but which are 811 compatible. I don't mind making small concessions such as dehydrating and using seaweed - the sort of concessions an 811er would make on an odd day when they feel like eating differently - but I really don't want to make fat based meals. I'm looking into the possibility of using sprout based meals. Sprouting wheat for example and making raw pasta with it. I admit it's not as optimal as fruit but it's something that anyone, even non 881ers could like and feel full on.
I'm looking to capture both raw fooders, potential or partial raw fooders, vegetarians and just people who want to eat differently for the day.
So I'm looking for suggestions - and also, I'm looking for anyone who would be interested in investing in us, or working with us! It's a long term project and I can't say exactly when it'll start, but if you're looking for adventure it could be a great opportunity.
PS reply with your favourite raw restaurants for the sake of inspiration! Even non raw restaurants with interesting business models are enjoyable for me to study. <3
