Step One: The Dream
Every successful food service operation starts out as an idea. Turning that idea into reality begins with your nearest Automat Kitchens Contract Designer. Crafting successful restaurant business models is our specialty, and our team can assist you in site selection, setting a rough budget, and validating the market potential of your concept. The key to a successful business plan is in the details. Let us help you fill in those important blanks.
Step Two: Where to Start
Location! Location! Location! Business success begins by placing your food service operation in the right spot for your customers. Space size, construction parameters, ventilation requirements, and building, fire and health codes must all be considered when determining if a particular space is right for your concept and budget. We can help you assess these factors at various locations to determine what is best for your new venture. Armed with this information, you can then consult with a contractor, finalize your business plan, establish your financing, and negotiate your lease.
Step Three: Planning
With the lease confirmed, we can now begin preparing a more detailed space layout to fine tune your project budget and business plan. After receiving a modest deposit, your Automat Kitchens designer will begin the many hours of work required to bring your architectural, interior and construction ideas to a design reality. We take full responsibility for our work, and pursue a plan that meets your requirements while keeping your budget in mind.
Step Four: Equipment Selection
Each piece of equipment in your operation must be chosen with functionality, efficiency and budget in mind. Working with your Chef, we discuss your menu concept in order to ensure the correct storage, preparation and cooking equipment is included in your operation. We also consider your future plans and equipment requirements, but only supply the equipment needed to meet your immediate menu needs and budget. This provides the ability to grow and expand easily in the future, with a logical next?stage design mapped out in advance.
Step Five: Manufacturing
Once your equipment selection is confirmed with a financial commitment, we begin scheduling the factory deliveries to coincide with your required opening date. Our outstanding reputation for completing projects on time and on budget means that you can now turn your attention to the many other details of your project, such as menu, staffing, decor etc.
