Clearwater, FL (PressExposure) May 26, 2009 -- Divino Restaurant investor-entrepreneur Dmitry Lisovitskiy, says right now is the best time to open a restaurant in Florida. Despite the deep US recession, which Lisovitskiy "does not believe in", he and his partner Piero Caramella are going to capitalize on the 27 billion dollars that will be spent in Florida by diners in 2009. According to market research by the National Restaurant Association, this year will be an unprecedented year for dining out in Florida where restaurant-goers will be spending more money than ever dining out. Maybe diners do not believe it is a recession either?
Divino will be modeled after the famous Italian Piazzas where the center of Italian culture comes alive with good conversation and great authentic Italian food. In Italy every single town or small village has a Piazza. It's a gathering place where people come together to talk and meet. It's the central focus point of the town.
"Personally I do not believe in a recession. If you do your job very well, if you give 100% of yourself to the job and you are really passionate about it, you can never fail, says Lisovitskiy, "Our goal is to bring people more value on the money they spend, and that is good because they will value you and they will trust you and they will be more happy."
