The First Step In Opening Your Own Food Restaurant.

by Chris Bernard Professional Blogger
The experts of Food Truck in Michigan have come up with a series of steps that you need to follow if you are planning to open your own restaurant. The entire process will take you 12 steps in 12 weeks.

Let us begin with the first step! The first step consists of three parts.

1.    Finalize the design and Construction:

Finalizing the design and construction doesn’t mean that you have to have all your construction and design work done right now all at once!

But you need to make sure that by week 12, you must have your basic construction needs mapped out and have all your contractors, electricians, and plumbers scheduled and in line.

You must know what exactly your construction needs are, who is supposed to perform which task, and what is the schedule of the work being completed.

2.    Permits and licenses:

This is the time to get all your permits and license applications submitted. Permit requirements vary from state to state and sometimes even city to city.

Hence, make sure to schedule a phone call with your local health inspector and your local code enforcement officer to know about the specific requirements in your area or municipality.

You need to start this process quite early because permits tend to be hung up for months in bureaucratic blackholes. You need to make sure that you are all set and legal by your opening day.

Most businesses will require a Business license from the state, a local-level/ city-level Victualer’s license, and also a liquor license Now is also the right time for you to schedule a state health inspection. Hence, if you come across any issues, you will have sufficient time to rectify things before your grand opening day.

As the owner of the business, you will need to complete a managerial food safety course. This is also the right time to secure General Liability insurance for your new business, so that it can protect you when someone gets hurt or sick. Also, make sure to grab an employee identification number from the IRS.

3.    Menu Development, testing, and finalization:

By now, you must already have a clear idea about the kind of food you are planning to serve at your new restaurant. Now is the time to translate all your overall concepts into specific dishes, fix the cost of each, and come up with a list of entrees for your opening day.


These are the first three parts of your first step in the opening of your restaurant business.
