Not performing a budget or budgetary control is equal to death according to FERRAN ADRIA

Not performing a budget or budgetary control is equal to death according to FERRAN ADRIA.

One of the world’s most renowned chefs and a highly successful businessman

The famous chef has coached a Restaurant Management course in Valencia (Spain)


“Not budgeting or budget control is equal to death.”

This is how forceful the first day of the intensive restaurant management course began in Valencia (Spain) by FERRAN ADRIA, founder and president of elBullifoundation


FERRAN ADRIA argues that the new generations are realizing the importance of managing the restaurant business like large companys.


FERRAN ADRIA has assured that it is necessary to “stick the knife in the neck” over the management and the budget because, otherwise, a restaurant will not succeed.


In tough times, data shows that 50% of restaurants are open for no more than five years.

Another 22% last no more than two years, in an industry where only between 10% and 20% work with an Annual Budget Control system.

FERRAN ADRIA identified the main problems facing the industry including the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, inflation of 8.7%, fiscal pressures, and the lack of room and kitchen staff.
