This conceptual study specifically aims at reviewing thefactors hindering women in small restaurants from improving their welfare. It demonstrates the conceptual frame work independent and dependent findings of small restaurant literature. The reason of this study was to find out whether women in small restaurants are affected by poor planning, to find out whether high taxes and rents contribute to the failure of small restaurant business in Kisenyi, and also finding out other factors preventing small restaurants from improving women welfare. I used both quantitative and qualitative methods to come with the information from the respondents. The findings revealed that major factors hindering women in small restaurants were little time on making the business plan because they did not know what to do next, poor service delivery to the customers, un budgeted business, lack of enough research on the restaurant business, poor decision making, high prices on foods and drinks in the business, high taxes and rents, poor customer care paying too much for the labor, rent and materials, lack of information about what customers like and dislike lack of knowledge about what restaurant businesses are and also witchcrafts. In my conclusion, the findings that were revealed made me realize that there was a missing gap which made me research more in order to come up with the recommendations. First of all I recommend that the women in the small restaurant should first know what they really doing like getting to know more about the restaurant business, that is carry out enough research about restaurants. Secondly, they should know who their customers are, what their customers like and what they do not like in order not to waste buying foods that they will end up pouring so that they come up with good savings. I also recommend that the government reduces on the tax which favors the women in small restaurants so that they can be in the position to earn income in order their welfare to improve.
