4 rabbis in my neighborhood have stated that one should not intentionally plan a siyum during the Nine Days for the sole purpose of wanting to eat meat.
I think I have also seen this attitude mentioned as by the OU on their halacha pages and pamphlets. (I.e., while one can assume that they would apply this attitude to their supervised places, the pamphlet I saw this in was a general OU halacha pamphlet, not a kosher OU establishment pamphlet.)
There is a Chinese meat restaurant in my neighborhood that has siyumim throughout the day. Approximately each 20 minutes, a siyum is given in some section of the restaurant so that customers may eat meat.
The restaurant doesn't want to serve parve. They tried this one year, and they lost money by staying open. It cost them more money between materials, salary, electricity, etc. than they recovered by their customer volume during that week.
Is an exception to the siyum policy made for a meat restaurant so that it may stay in business during the week?
The restaurant is supervised by the local Va'ad, and I'm asking this question independent of a Va'ad or supervising org's official policy. For this question, assume that no one stated an explicit restriction as part of their kashrut criteria.
