At Encore Construction, we stress to our clients that the easiest way to a successful outcome is a smart beginning. In this blog, we’ll share some of our best insight regarding teamwork and planning in the commercial restaurant business.
A large part of restaurant success is determined before the doors open. This is a crucial time for builders and their team. By implementing smart planning tactics, teams can avoid the most common mistakes that often become a large piece of the restaurant’s monthly overhead.
An effective way to avoid mistakes and manage costs is to assemble a team of experts that you trust and enjoy working with. Establishing a well-balanced team early will save you money in the long run, as well as set the tone for the entire project. The core members of a successful team typically involve a broker, attorney, architect, and contractor. If you’re new and don’t have contacts readily prepared, consider obtaining referrals from one team member you know personally.
Know Your Costs
Restaurant construction teams can check off a variety of boxes even without a proposed site in hand. Perform a concept review and discuss size, type, level of finishes and more to establish an accurate initial budget. Understanding and knowing your costs ahead of time will simplify the entire process. Once you have found your site, perform a site survey to establish the costs associated with adapting the restaurant concept to the property.
