How much does it cost to open a restaurant?
Nowadays, one of the most difficult types of business is restaurant. And the problem here is not to find a suitable room, make a menu and recruit staff, but in the clients.
Now even the finest cuisine, excellent location and pleasant interior will not guarantee that your business will bring sufficient profit. The fact is that in this area the competition is very high, so you have to work hard to achieve a good result.
In order for your restaurant business to be profitable, you need to take care not only of the unique menu, but also of the atmosphere of your catering establishment. You need to make sure that the client who visited your restaurant once wants to return here again and again.
Now in the field of catering, there are many diverse solutions. The most difficult and expensive is the opening of a gastronomic restaurant, where guests are offered dishes prepared according to a complex recipe. Here are very popular culinary masterpieces from the chef. Customer service takes place at individual tables, and payment is carried out only after the account is closed. Also recently popular everyday restaurants, which differ in more affordable prices and a simplified menu.
Taverns and bars are popular among sports fans, as football matches and other sporting events are often broadcast here. Here, visitors often spend the evening at the bar, where the barman settles.
Fast foods and fast-food cafes are distinguished by the fact that they use semi-finished products for cooking dishes. There are no waiters in such catering establishments, and the calculation is made with the cashier immediately after ordering.
Depending on which option you choose, the amount that you need to invest in opening a business will also depend. According to experts, on average about two million rubles are needed, which will return in a year or three.
If you take the average, then the paperwork will need three hundred thousand, about a million will go to purchase equipment, and another seven hundred thousand to repair the rented premises. Interior items and furniture will cost another five hundred thousand. In total, two and a half million rubles will be spent on the opening of the restaurant.
But, this is not all, since monthly expenses are indispensable. If we assume that the rent will cost one hundred and fifty thousand, wages two hundred, and advertising and operating expenses seventy thousand, then in total it will be four hundred twenty thousand rubles!
