Dear Mr. James Rohr,
Attached hereby is a business proposal for the establishment of Middle Eastern Restaurant in South Williamson Port, PA. The venture comes at an opportune time when the number of tourists in the area is increasing at a high rate. It is therefore prudent to take advantage of this influx of tourists from the Middle East and other Asian cities coming to America. It is thus viable to set up a restaurant that will address the insatiable appetite and penchant for Middle East cuisines and culture. This will be both beneficial to not only the tourists but also for the residents of South Williamsport who will derive benefits either directly or indirectly.
Middle Eastern restaurant in Williamsport will include equipment classified as kitchen, refrigeration and lodge equipment and appliances. The restaurant will be operational 24/7 thus providing services to any tourist at any time of the day. The unique selling point of the restaurant is its ability to blend Middle Eastern and Western Cuisines and cultures. The prices will also be pocket-friendly as well as the various specials that will come as added packages for the tourists.
I have attached a copy of business proposal for your review. Please feel free to contact by phone at XXX-YYY-ZZZ or by email at [email protected], and I will be pleased to provide you with any additional information required. Thank you for your consideration.

In addition to the challenges that come with starting and operating a restaurant, additional challenges come with staring a Middle Eastern restaurant in a region of different ethnic social and cultural setup. The differences in the social, religious, and cultural setting in the United States and the Middle East prove the need to put the matter under scrutiny and develop proper business strategies that would help in tackling all the challenges to such a restaurant in America.
The purpose of this paper is to carry out holistic analysis of the proposal of starting a Middle Eastern restaurant in America and identify the various ways through which the society can overcome the barriers of social, cultural and religious differences. This paper also serves to appreciate the benefits of running a cross-cultural business in the society and the impacts that it has in the society. This is in addition to analysis of the preparation stages and preparedness that such a restaurant needs to go through to ensure that the goals and objectives are met and help in reaching out to diverse groups of people. Analysis to be carried out include the amount of capital required, skills and competencies that employees need to acquire, and the variety of foods that suits the American people.
