Change of lifestyle and shifting of demographics are the reasons why restaurants are a great business idea here in Perth. Busy customers do not have time to cook or inclination to prepare their own food. They want to taste the flavour of steak without the hassle of preparing. They want tasty, nutritious meals without dishes to wash. When it comes to buying their meals, Australians including adults, students, singles, working parents and elderly people are demanding greater convenience.
