Getting Your Restaurant Ready To Move Locations
Moving your restaurant can be a big step for your business. Whether you’re relocating to a larger location or to a new location that has better visibility, you’ll want to prepare your restaurant properly for the move. This article covers several steps to prepare your restaurant for a move.
Choosing the right time to move a restaurant
Choosing the right time to move your restaurant can increase its profits and visibility in a new location. However, the timing must be planned well in advance, so that it does not disrupt your business. If you can, consider moving during off-peak hours or during a weekend or holiday. Also, consider hiring a professional moving company to help you move as soon as possible.
Among the many factors to consider when moving to a new restaurant location is the neighborhood. Consider the noise level, location of parking, proximity to public transportation, and foot traffic. If you see high foot traffic, that may indicate that the location is a good fit.
Preparing for the move
While moving a restaurant is no small task, it can be a good opportunity to give it a fresh look. New exterior and interior decor can help attract new customers, and a new location will provide the chance to expand. Restaurant owners who relocate should begin preparations as soon as possible. They should determine how much money they are going to need for the relocation, as well as the costs of moving and set-up services. Setting up a detailed budget for the move will make the transition much easier.
Moving is an emotional event, so make sure to plan carefully. If possible, plan the move for a time when the restaurant is not in operation. It is recommended to move at the end of the workday, over a weekend, or during a holiday, if possible. Make sure to notify all of your current customers that the move is coming. This way, they will be able to make plans accordingly and avoid causing a business halt.
Choosing a new location
When deciding on the location for your restaurant, consider its potential impact on your brand, income, and expenses. It’s a complex process that involves several factors, and there are no shortcuts. Using a variety of resources and evaluating all angles, you can find the perfect location for your restaurant. Ideally, the location should be easily accessible, with a high level of foot traffic.
Another important factor is the area’s crime rate. Knowing the crime rate in a certain area gives you a sense of the safety of the neighborhood. A high crime rate may be a sign that you need to consider a new location. Additionally, a low crime rate is another important factor in determining the right location for your restaurant. Make sure you know what kinds of security measures are necessary for the area.
Choosing a moving company
Choosing a commercial moving company for our restaurant is an important step in the restaurant relocation process. Restaurants contain expensive and fragile items and need to be moved by professionals to ensure that everything is safe and secure. It is important to hire a company that is licensed and insured, so you can rest assured that they will treat your belongings with care.
When choosing a moving company, check their license and certifications. They should be bonded, licensed, and insured. Also, make sure they are a member of the American Moving and Storage Association and the Better Business Bureau. Membership in these organizations shows that they have a commitment to providing good customer service.
Planning an opening event
Planning an opening event is a great way to announce the new location of your restaurant and attract new customers. To ensure a successful event, you should send out e-vites to your old customers to let them know about the new location. Decide what type of event you’ll host, and ensure that it appeals to your target audience.
If you’re in a new neighborhood, you can make your event even more memorable by incorporating a charitable component. This will draw people who like to support a good cause, and it will help you build a relationship with your community. Consider choosing a special organization and including their story as part of your opening materials. This will have a lasting effect on your restaurant’s reputation in the community.
About Dose Moving
Dose Moving and Storage started in a garage in 2014. With a Ford pickup truck and a rented Uhaul trailer, Dose made deliveries for consignment stores. One of the customers was so happy with her delivery that she asked if we would move her. We said sure! From that day forward, we were in the moving business.
Dose quickly decided that they would take everything that was wrong with the moving industry and change it. Dose patented our moving and wrapping techniques so that nothing would get damaged. Dose changed the pricing structure so that all rates were transparent and honest with no hidden or extra fees. Dose changed the hiring process and culture of the moving industry by paying our employees more than any other moving company. Dose only hires non-smokers and our employees must pass a federal background check and drug test.
