About the class
Hello, I'm Jang Jin-woo.
Starting with “Jang Jin-woo Restaurant” on Gyeongridan-gil in 2011, over the past 12 years, we have opened more than 200 restaurants with different concepts across the country.
More than 100 of these stores have been closed due to rapid changes in fashion, intense competition in the catering industry, and various operational issues. In commercial areas and alleys in various regions over a long period of time In the process of opening many restaurants With the know-how I've learned, I have experienced both success and failure I'd like to share my experience with Class101 students. I hope that not only the students who are preparing to start a restaurant business through my class, but also many classmates who have vague goals but are hesitant to take on the challenge will gain some courage.

What makes this class special
Know-how of a restaurant entrepreneur who has opened more than 200 restaurants all over the country
The restaurant business, which is ranked number one for self-employed and small business owners to start businesses due to its low barriers to entry, is easily viewed by everyone, but in reality, it is the industry with the highest rate of closure. It is an industry that is heavily influenced by high start-up capital and costs (rent, labor costs, food costs, etc.), fierce competition for survival within the commercial sector, and trends that change when you open your eyes, so it is difficult to operate and requires constant thought in order to survive for a long time.
My new and diverse attempts, which came out of such a difficult journey and time of torment, have succeeded, and sometimes failed. I hope that my experience conveying to you through class 101 will correct any misconceptions about starting a restaurant business and be a careful and correct guide.
My goal is “to create a social enterprise with food”
