Hiring a manager to run day to day operations for a newly acquired business?

Given I have no experience in running a business (say a cafe for example), would I be able to find an experienced manager to run it for me? Am I naive in thinking this is a viable option?

Ideally I would like to focus on marketing / strategy / business processes etc and have someone more experienced in the operations side run it day to day for me.

Should you always work in a business yourself before you find a manager to run it for you, or are there some cases where finding a manager from the beginning works and makes sense? How hard is it to find good managers? How do you incentivise and empower them?

Thanks in advance šŸ™‚
