Alteration of premises to be used as a restaurant

Launching a restaurant is accompanied with a number of steps, of which one of the most important is selection and alteration of premises to be used for this business. Right from the start it is necessary to make sure that the plans can be implemented based on the financing available. So, and in no other way you can count on further successful business development.

Ins and outs of selecting premises for a restaurant

The easiest way will be to find premises where there used to be a food outlet before. In that case alteration of the restaurant dining room or kitchen will not call for considerable expenses. However, the client always reserves the right to make a complete alteration of the premises for a new restaurant design.

It is far more complicated to turn into a café or a restaurant those premises that used to be residential ones. Before you sign a long-term lease contract or make a purchase, make sure to consult experts. In many cases, alteration of premises turns to be impossible.

With this in mind we can come to the conclusion that any businessman who wants to launch a new restaurant has two options:

  • To rent residential premises and to restructure them as non-residential;
  • To select non-residential premises, where restructuring will call for less or absolutely no effort.

When choosing the premises to be used as a restaurant you should order expert assessment to specialists that evaluate the premises upon a number of basic criteria:

  • Occurrence of defects;
  • Possibility to make alteration or redesign of the facade;
  • Location of the building and premises the restaurant is to be housed in;
  • Possibility to change parameters of the premises that would be in line with the national standards with respect to food outlets;
  • Availability of space for production capacities of the would-be restaurant.

Restructuring premises for a restaurant as non-residential

To restructure premises as non-residential, they should meet a number of criteria:

  • To have a separate entrance;
  • To be located on the ground floor of the building;
  • Not to be a part of residential premises;
  • Not to be in disrepair or non-repairable.
