Where to Locate Your Restaurants?


Not every available space is right for a restaurant. A good restaurant location is harder to find than some people think. Other times a spot that you would never think to put a restaurant — like in an old shoe shop in a run-down mill town — is a success. Of course, food and service are important to the success of a restaurant, but the location can be just as crucial, especially in the early years. For selecting a restaurant location you should know below points.
1. Parking Is a Must
Parking is very much essential now a days because people can not walk a fair distance to reach your restaurant, they may opt to go somewhere else which is more convenient. If it is in urban area where everyone walks and use public transportation, but if you are looking out of town, in that place that requires to drive to get there, you’d better parking available.
2. Visibility is Important
Making your restaurant (or restaurant sign) visible to the public is like free advertising. It reminds them that your restaurant exists and they should stop by for dinner sometime.
3. Size Does Matter
Even the smallest bistro or coffee shop requires adequate space for a kitchen, walk-in refrigerator, dry storage and an office for paperwork. Your dining room needs space for a wait-station and possibly a bar. What looks like a huge space for rent can quickly fill up with all the equipment needed to open a restaurant.
4. Safety First
One of the first steps in choosing a restaurant location is finding out if the building is up to code. Does it have proper wiring, fire alarms, sprinkler systems, handicap-accessible doors, restrooms, ramps? A walk through the building with your local code enforcement officer will help you determine what needs to be done to a space before you open a restaurant.
5. Know Your Neighbors
When looking for a restaurant location, consider who else is doing business in the neighborhood. Are there already half a dozen restaurants with the same concept as yours? Is the area busy or full of empty storefronts? Successful businesses attract other successful businesses.
6. Don’t be Impulsive
You may visit one spot and decide that it is “the one.” Before you start sketching out the dining room, be sure to visit multiple sites. And visit prospective restaurant sites during different times of days, during the week and on weekends. For example, is the area really busy during the work day and dead at night and on weekends? Patience pays off when selecting a restaurant space.
