Setting Up a New Italian Restaurant: the 7 Key Steps

There are some 7 key steps you need to follow, while setting up an Italian restaurant. We will be focusing on those steps, in today’s article. This information is likely to be of great relevance to anyone who is considering establishing an Italian restaurant. And without any further ado, the 7 key steps you need to follow, while setting up an Italian restaurant include:

  1. Finding the necessary capital for the restaurant: this may entail applying for a loan from a bank. Or it may entail selling some asset you own, and using the proceeds to set up the Italian restaurant. At yet another level, it may entail saving money slowly over time, to get the funds you need to establish an Italian restaurant. Alternatively, you can use a windfall that comes your way to finance the Italian restaurant. Like let’s say, for instance, that you work for an employer who uses the Securitas payroll solution. You may then come to learn (from your employer’s Securitas Epay talx paperless guide) that you are eligible for bonuses from time to time. And then, at some point, you may login into the Securitas Epay portal (through the Securitas Epay login screen) – only to find that the long-awaited bonus has finally been awarded. You can then decide to use such windfall funds to finance the establishment of a new Italian restaurant… So there are so many options, in terms of how you can obtain the funds to start the Italian restaurant.
  2. Finding suitable premises for the restaurant: this is really a question of scouting for the best possible location.
  3. Buying the necessary equipment for the restaurant: here, we are looking at the cooking equipment, serving utensils, tables and chairs for the customers to sit on… and so on.
  4. Hiring the necessary staff for the restaurant: you will need to hire kitchen staff as well as waiters, cashiers, security staff and so on.
  5. Obtaining the necessary licenses for the restaurant: this will include the trading licenses and food handling certificates among others.
  6. Creating a menu for the restaurant: here, you make a decision on the types of dishes (and drinks) to be served in the new Italian restaurant. Then you come up with appropriate pricing.
  7. Getting customers to patronize the restaurant: to this end, you may need to advertise, put up attractive neon signs to guide customers into the restaurant… and so on. Once people know that there is a new Italian restaurant, they will be inclined to try it out. And if they find it to be good, they will be inclined to become regular customers. That is how you create a customer base.
