This chapter examines ethnic-minority enterprises in inner cities in England, focusing on the independent restaurant sector in Birmingham. It discusses the salient theoretical and empirical issues in the field of ethnic-minority entrepreneurship, and addresses the problem of market saturation, which is the most important problem faced by restaurateurs in the Balti Quarter. The chapter describes the strategies for breaking free from the economic trajectory of the sector and evaluates the relevance of existing policy approaches towards ethnic-minority entrepreneurs.

Keywords:   ethnic-minority enterprises, inner cities, England, restaurant sector, market saturation, economic trajectory
