Open a new restaurant It is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. There are many areas to consider as you prepare to open your restaurant, including writing a menu, buying the right equipment, and hiring the right staff. To help you get started, I've put together a checklist of everything you need to get to opening day.

1. Choose a solid concept

The concepts of restaurant are often conceived based on Actual trends (or fads) in food. Like the restaurants built around fondue pots or ten-pound burgers, will they last? While a concept built around a diverse menu offering a variety of classic and new dishes, it is likely to be as popular with diners in five years as it is now.

Don't underestimate your competition. Maybe you think you can do better. And maybe you can. But that restaurant Mom and Dad who has been around forever, obviously they are doing something right, stay in business.

Prior to write your menu, consider the size of the kitchen of your restaurant, which directly affects the size and style of your menu. A kitchen Smaller will limit the variety of your restaurant menu. This does not mean that you cannot offer a large number of items. Many restaurants They do have small kitchens, but still, they have a wide variety of items on their menu. The secret to working at kitchen of a small restaurant is to use cross ingredients and learn to work with only a few kitchen different.

10. Take advantage of social media to do marketing

Once you're open for business, it's time to start advertising. If you're not sure where to start with your social media campaign, find other local places and follow them. If you admire a restaurant in a different area than where you do business, follow it too and see how they use social media. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel.
