Are you a business owner thinking about building a new restaurant? If yes, in order to succeed in the construction process you should consider avoiding these 4 common building mistakes before, during and after the Grand opening:
1. DO NOT STICK TO A CONCEPT
What is different from your restaurant that makes people go to it? In order to succeed, make sure your restaurant has an established concept that differentiates it from your competitors. You want to be unique and find your Unique Selling Proposition, also known as USP. Before you start the restaurant construction, you need to come up with a niche and style, always thinking of and for your customers.
“A great, well-executed concept creates a great restaurant.”
2. PICK THE WRONG LOCATION
This is a crucial mistake that restaurant owners should avoid before thinking about beginning any construction. There are many factors to consider before choosing a location, such as the accessibility to your place, the number of parking places around the area, the visibility and traffic around your restaurant, just to name some. In order to succeed with the location, we recommend you follow the competition in your area and how they manage their business in there.
3. DO NOT SPEND ON MARKETING AND PROMOTION
