Where is your restaurant? Your answer to this question may be the single most important factor in your restaurant’s success. To be a success in the restaurant business, you need more than a great concept. Plenty of great concept ideas are failing miserably because of poor sites. The opposite is also true. Plenty of mediocre concepts with grade-A sites are making money hand over fist.
Look around you. Fast-food joints populate the interstate and small coffee shops have sprung up inside bookstores. Maybe you’ve noticed the sandwich shops and dessert kiosks inside department stores. Or possibly you’ve visited the fine-dining establishment at the top of the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington. If you’ve been to a ball game recently, you may have noticed that many stadiums have moved beyond the typical hot dog vendor to offer a great variety of restaurants. From a gas station that offers Chinese food to a fine-dining restaurant by a racetrack, the options for combining concept and location seem endless.
