At Carolina Bay Construction, we have worked on a wide variety of projects over the years, including many restaurants. We are a family-owned business that is committed to delivering top-notch results on all our projects, and we can help you bring your restaurant to life. During our time in the construction industry, we have also seen many restaurant construction mistakes, and in this article, we’ll be going over three of the worst examples so that you can avoid making the same errors.
- Underestimating Costs- One of the mistakes we see a lot when it comes to restaurant construction projects is underestimating the costs of the project. There’s no way to get around it: building a restaurant is expensive, and we recommend you do your research so you have a realistic idea of the costs involved before you begin.
- Underestimating the Timeline- Another mistake that people often make in regard to restaurant construction projects is underestimating how long the project will take. Building a restaurant takes time, so it’s important to be patient while your construction team works. In addition, we recommend that you avoid being too specific when discussing your opening date, as it’s likely that your project will experience delays.
- Failing to Get Permits- A third mistake we have seen often when it comes to restaurant construction is neglecting to get the necessary permits. In order to build a restaurant, you will need multiple permits from both health and building code authorities, so it’s important to work with a team that can secure them for you. Our owner and founder is an alumnus of the highly acclaimed construction management program at East Carolina University, so you can count on us to handle all the permits and paperwork ahead of time.
