Opening a Restaurant without Someone Protecting Your Interests Can Be the Beginning of the End
Use Additional Resources in the Form of Specialists in New Openings and Project Management to Increase the Odds of Success and Provide a Smooth Opening
Thousands of dollars are lost during openings by operators trying to do things that they do not specialize in. Experience can save you money and stress. Hire a contractor to build your building; hire a consultant to build your business.
Most operators do not have staff available who are versed in all aspects of a new opening or re-concept. Hiring temporary specialists can save you thousands of dollars and accelerate your business plan.
A New Opening Operations Consultant Project Manager is your greatest asset. They work for you in your best interests. They’ve opened and designed many projects. Being versed in flow, menus, planning, staffing and equipment allows them to save you staffing in your design. This is a saving for the entire time you own your restaurant. An employee position eliminated through creative design can save you $100,000 a year (in profit – money you never spent). With the increasing cost of labor this savings will be even greater in the future. Food and beverage costs go up, utility costs go up and occupancy costs go up but none of these increase at the rate of labor costs. It’s not just the hourly rate but benefits and taxes that go along with the employee. Never spend it and it will never go up.
Retain a project consultant before you build to save costs forever.
