Introduction to the Restaurant and Pastry Business Entrepreneurship Program

Unleash your entrepreneurial spirit

Those who do not innovate are condemned to follow those who have

Today, the restaurant world is more complex than ever before, and the most successful establishments are those that combine design, creation and strategy in one business proposal, in short, the product.

That is why when we decided to design this course focused on restaurant and pastry business entrepreneurship , we wanted our students to feel that they are constantly looking towards the future, and that they understand that the only way to lead the future is by designing it themselves, in other words, by innovating.

This restaurant entrepreneur course offers you a 360º perspective, from ideation to post-inauguration, preparing you for the goal: "I am going to create my own restaurant". Whether you have a clear project or just a vague idea, this program will open your eyes to new ways of seeing the restaurant business and, above all, how customers will view your proposal in the coming years. This program is a journey through all the stages you will have to go through, with a particular focus on customers’ behavior, the latest business models and, of course, the digital world that will condition success.

One of the things that will surprise you most about this business program about Design, Creation and Strategy of Restaurant Business is its approach. Don't expect a course that floods you with information that you won't be able to manage. This course activates your knowledge in a different way: it teaches you to investigate and solve the problems you encounter whilst you design and create. Almost every subject includes a practical workshop, that's 11 workshops in total, in which you will work as a team to apply the knowledge you have acquired to real-life situations.

This approach also includes truly innovative perspectives, such as treating clients from an anthropological point of view, in which you will learn about both human motivations and behavior, so that you can design your restaurant accordingly.

This course teaches you how to create and the product and market strategy. You will use both digital and traditional tools, and by the end of the course, you will have acquired knowledge and a novel language that will give you a competitive edge when it comes to launching your idea.

You will bear witness to examples of successful business models from the hands of their creators and owners, from a burger restaurant to renowned Michelin-Star establishments.

You will learn the strengths and weaknesses of each and every one. You will accompany experts on a journey you will never forget, visiting more projects and delving deeper into the motivations and stories behind these legendary temples of gastronomy.

This course will open your eyes to new models, new ways of understanding what a restaurant can be and, above all, help you see the future before anyone else.

The Journey where everything makes sense

Explore La Rioja: The Universe of Francis Paniego

Leaving early on a Monday and returning on Thursday afternoon, you will discover different business models of restaurants created by the same person. You will walk through the streets of various towns in La Rioja, tasting, learning, and living the experience, from dining in a tavern to eating at a restaurant with two Michelin stars.

The Journey will allow you to see at its best all the knowledge acquired throughout the entrepreneurship program. This is part of the experiential sessions, called Explorer, held outside the CIB, bringing you closer to the reality of the entrepreneurial chef, always guided by its protagonists, founders, and/or top executives.
