After a long and hard week, your customers want a relaxing dine-out experience that you can only provide if you have the perfect food, the right ambiance, and an accessible the perfect location where people can access you easily.
So, naturally, if you find that your current location isn’t the perfect place for you to get enough business, you will make an effort to relocate. Relocation for restaurants might not be as easy and might require extensive planning to get done.
If, at this point, you’re biting your nails out of anticipation of how you will do it all – we’re here to help! Here are some great tips for moving your restaurant in some easy steps – let’s begin!
Find the Perfect Location
You don’t want to make the same mistakes repeatedly; ensure that the location you settle in now gives you the visibility and traffic your old premises couldn’t.
Before you start thinking about moving, make sure you spend time researching possible locations. Put each of your potential locations through a cost-benefit analysis to help you make a wise decision.
Only sign up for a new place when you find something that aligns with your budget, marketing strategy, and target audience.
Hire Climate Controlled Movers
Moving to a restaurant isn’t easy – especially if you try to do it alone. You’ll have to hire someone for added help. Remember that you likely have perishable, temperature-sensitive food items to relocate – so you need a provider that can offer you climate-controlled shipping options to preserve your ingredients and prevent any damage, like us.
Host an Event
You don’t want your customers in the dark – the last thing you need is your loyal customer base arriving at your old location.
Make sure you take out the time to launch a social media campaign about your change of location. In addition, at the new location, make sure to start off with a bang by hosting an opening night promotion.
Send out flyers and newsletters to let your potential and existing customer base that you will be serving from the new location, and let them know you want them to be a part of your opening night.
