Why Chain Restaurant Construction Needs a Qualified General Contractor

Chain restaurants might seem simple to build, but this is not the case at all.

So you’ve just decided to purchase your own franchise of a chain restaurant. Everything went smoothly with the chain itself, and you have the money set aside and a plan for opening in place. All that’s left to do is the actual chain-restaurant construction. You probably think since it’s a restaurant chain that construction will be relatively easy, and you might even want to just find any construction company, hand them the blueprint, and let them handle it. However, even though many locations look very similar, chain restaurant construction can be just as complex as a custom-designed and built restaurant. Here’s why you should always use a qualified commercial general contractor for chain-restaurant construction. 

Staying on Schedule

When not using a qualified general contractor for your chain restaurant construction project, you may run into a multitude of scheduling issues. When an unreasonable opening time is set, the construction may turn out sloppy, or many construction companies may not accept the job in the first place. On the other hand, if there is too long of a deadline or one that is only general, there will likely be lots of delays and miscommunications. A qualified commercial general contractor makes sure to work with you and the franchise itself to create a schedule that is easy to work with and reasonable, making sure that you will receive the best quality construction and have a timely opening.

Finding Subcontractors

Depending on the restaurant chain, there may be different elements that are focused on. For example, some chains focus on the interior design of the restaurant and opt for fancy art pieces and intricate scenery. Other restaurants are more focused on faster service and more state-of-the-art cooking facilities. When simply contacting any construction group, they may not have the specific expertise that the chain-restaurant construction project might require, and it might not turn out as well as it needs to be. A qualified commercial general contractor that is familiar with chain restaurant construction, on the other hand, will already be well familiar with the area’s best qualified subcontractors and can contact them accordingly to work on your chain-restaurant construction project. 

Well Versed in Restaurant Construction

Some chain restaurant construction instructions may include some complex construction lingo about specifications of kitchen items and HVAC systems, amongst other things. To someone who is unfamiliar with constructing restaurant-related items like this, this may seem like an impossible challenge. However,to a chain-restaurant commercial general contractor, this will be no big deal. They will be able to align to all required standards as set by the franchise.
