Congratulations, you have a new location ready for your restaurant! Now comes the hard part: actually moving it all there. It may seem like a small task, but it’s a real challenge, even for experienced restaurateurs, to pack, move and unpack it all.
You want it to be a seamless, simple move, so we have prepared these simple tips and tricks to help you get started with your restaurant relocation:
Pick a new location
This will probably be a tough decision, and you should consult a realtor, a lawyer and a surveyor.
Choose the best place suited to your customers – where they hang out, get lunch from, go out to donner to, etc. At the end of the day, if your customers love your food but you’re in an area with no accessibility, they won’t show up.
Pick a date and announce it, everywhere
The moving date will probably be when the new contract stars and the old one ends.
Right after you pick the moving date, notify your employees and customers – physically with a sign at the entrance, and digitally in your online website. This will make sure you don’t lose any business.
Make sure your servers will let the customers know about the move, you don’t want people to show up at your old location, disappointed.
Packing, unpacking and moving your entire restaurant, professional movers will do it all for you. They have the know – how and experience to make a seamless transition in the shortest amount of time possible.
