Starting in December, the Cuban government will lease select state-owned

eateries to their workers to run as independent businesses, a

possibility that has been available to barber shops and beauty salons

for some time.

According to officials cited in state media, the system of private

management of small cafes and state restaurants will begin with 200

establishments that have no more than two workers each, and will be

gradually increased to some 1,200.

When the efficiency of the system has been shown, it will be extended to

eateries with up to five workers.

Besides economic effiency, one of the measure's goals is "to offer a

higher quality of service in establishments that do not always offer

varied and attractive menus to consumers," according to a report on

state television.

The expansion of the non-state sector is at the core of the economic

reforms promoted in recent years by President Raul Castro, which have

opened a small foothold to private enterprise in the only communist

country in the Americas.

The growth of self-employment and small-scale private enterprise has led

to a proliferation of small businesses, many of them restaurants, coffee

shops and small cafes.
