Do not dream of setting up a First-World restaurant for a Third-World clientele. Your intentions may be noble, but you will eventually lose your money and plunge into bankruptcy.

Know especially that, to complicate matters, you may be a First-World person but your staff will be Third-World unless you offer them First-World salaries, and that, even if you send them off to training, they will soon leave you to cross over to greener pastures, usually abroad.

That is why I have always advised M. to keep his cafe a "local local".
