Building a great restaurant: Dining Room
A Restaurant Construction Project, especially if it is your first one, might be a daunting process. Extensive work must be done in both the dining room and kitchen, so this kind of task calls for a more thorough process with high attention to detail and more extensive security measures than other construction projects. There are a lot of steps to get done before the big opening and every aspect, from the design to the final decoration, has an impact on your future income.
The restaurant dining room, known as the “front of the house”, is the most important area. It sets the stage for the customer experience and its design determines the ambiance you desire for your restaurant. The dining room’s purpose is not only aesthetic, though. Setting the tables and chairs sounds easy but there’s a lot to consider before that.
To create an appropriate floor plan, the first step is to consider the physical space of your restaurant and assign a proper space to every operation. Take into account spaces allotted to wait for stations, storage, POS system –all of which must be out of sight for customers-. Creating a dining room where there’s the ease of movement, includes social distancing and biosecurity barriers and is still capable of hosting as many guests as possible has a direct impact on the overall efficiency and profit margins.
Naturally, detailed finish work is important to brand image. However, the Dining Room must also be durable and built for longevity as it must be able to withstand the rigors of heavy customer foot traffic.
As you see, excellent floor planning and design don’t solve the entire equation. If the construction process is not carried out with both aesthetics and durability in mind, you might experience that income doesn’t fulfill your projection, or you might find yourself doing repairs and replacements much sooner than anticipated.
