How to Open a Restaurant in Pakistan

In Pakistan, eating out is a widely popular activity amongst people. With a lack of entertainment options and other recreational activities, going to a restaurant and enjoying a nice meal is something many look forward to. People pay a hefty amount to enjoy a nice ambiance, decor, and tasty cuisine. Hence, it is a very lucrative business, and deciding to open a restaurant requires certain important steps. Let’s have a look:

Deciding the Type of Restaurant 

Selecting the restaurant style is the first most important step. There are three styles; quick service, mid-scale and upscale. Choosing the type of restaurant will set the direction for this business venture. With a quick service, we mostly have fast food options and on the go options. The seating area is normally casual and limited to a small space. For midscale restaurants, the food menu is somewhat limited and seating is focused on being comfortable. For upscale restaurants, the menu is elaborate with some special items and the ambiance and seating elude class and luxury.

The Theme of the Restaurant 

The theme of a restaurant is the next crucial step, as this will help set the menu and audience. There is a variety of cuisines one can choose from such as thai, chinese, local cuisines, mexican, italian and continental, etc. Once the theme of the restaurant is finalized we can focus on the menu and what items need to be served. One can start by introducing a small list of items and then slowly expand this menu. 

Hiring And Training the Staff

Once the theme and menu of the restaurant are finalized, the next step is to build a team. For this, we will require two teams, one working inside the kitchen and one working outside. The chefs and cooks need to be trained in the type of cuisine planned for the restaurant. The staff will also be required to get training. Gathering a workforce and training them is a very important step in the process. 

Obtaining Funding

The next step is to obtain funding. This step is the make or break of this whole process as without funding one cannot possibly start any venture. This can be used to invest in the business, such as for the decor of the restaurant, buying furniture, buying crockery, training of staff, and other kitchen supplies. It will also be used for buying produce for the food, staff salaries, and training. Other important expenses include registration fees, rent, and other governmental charges for setting up a restaurant. Having access to the right amount of funding is crucial.

Marketing the Business

The last step in this process is marketing and targeting the right audience. In this digital age, online marketing plays a powerful role in attracting the right type of audience and promoting a business. By using online marketing tools and social media as well, one can attract quite a few people towards their food business. These tools can be used to share pictures and videos of the place and food items, one can also share positive reviews online. With the right type of marketing, one can really promote their business.
