In Part A, we covered your business plan and now in Part B, we take a look at the final steps needed to start your own restaurant or café.
These steps begin with engaging the best interior project specialists for your new restaurant or café fitout in Sydney and ends with the launch of your business!
1. Arrange your restaurant or café fitout in Sydney
With your business plan and funds organised, your next step is to hire interior project specialists to start your restaurant or cafe fitout. This includes the front end with its furniture and décor, as well as the back end kitchen and all the necessary equipment.
2. Select the best POS for your situation
Now that your cafe fitout is well on its way to completion, you need to organise your Point of Service or POS as it’s usually called in the industry. This is a computerised system that helps you track sales, food inventories and cash flow for your business. It will make your bookkeeping and tax much easier at the end of the month.
3. Organise food and liquor supplies
You might not be selling alcohol at your establishment, but if you are then it’s time to organise these suppliers, as well as suppliers for your food. Finding reliable providers is an important part of a successful business venture, so it pays to take your time and get it right.
4. Hire staff for front of house and kitchen
Now is the time to hire a manager for your restaurant or café, as well as all the staff for the front end and kitchen. Having staff on board (particularly the chef) will help you with the final step in your venture, outlined below.
5. Test your new menu on staff, family and friends
Your cafe fitout should be nearing completion, so it’s time to design and test your initial menu. This will also allow you to spot check your new suppliers for quality and reliability.
With all ten steps covered, you are now ready to launch your new café or restaurant!
