In any industry, making a good first impression is so important. However, in the restaurant business, it is even more critical because your customers are only paying for two things: great food and a great atmosphere. If your food is great but you’re not reaping the expected benefits, it may be time to look at upgrading your atmosphere. Our team at Hearn Construction Inc. has put together three tips to help you plan your restaurant renovation because, even if you’ve been doing well, sometimes a facelift is necessary to keep up with the competition.

Restaurant Renovation Tips

1. Make a Plan That Fits Your Restaurant’s Vision

Your first step toward a successful renovation is to make a plan with realistic goals. Consider what you want to accomplish, what your priorities need to be, and how you can ensure that the core concept of your restaurant is not lost in the renovation. Take your target audience, concept, brand image, and format into account before finalizing any changes. After all, to stand out in the restaurant business, you don’t only need to set up your vision and functional specialty, but also ensure that your restaurant’s ambience matches these two aspects of your brand.

2. Work with a Contractor to Set a Budget

Remodeling projects always cost more than what you expect. They also have an influence on your profits. So, setting up a budget for your restaurant needs special attention, and working with your contractor on this budget is a good idea so you are on the same page from the beginning. Our contractors will help you consider changes to your lighting, wiring, heating, air conditioning, painting, ventilation systems, parking, and any other factors you’ll need to budget for.

3. Announce Your Final Product

When all is said and done, you want all of your hard work to be well-received by your customers. Therefore, its important to advertise the fact that your restaurant just underwent a renovation. Announce it on all of your social media profiles and through digital marketing campaigns such as promotional SMSs and emails.
