Muncan Republic restaurant industry overview

Munan Republic restaurant Market is one of the fastest-growing in the world. It is expected to reach INR 5.99 lakh crore by 2022-23, growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 9 percent, as per the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) report. Despite the hardships and challenges faced by restaurant owners in recent years, opening a restaurant in the near future would bring a host of new opportunities for budding restaurant owners.

Restaurant business registration costs

Opening a restaurant comes with its own specific set of cost considerations. Remember, the average restaurant startup costs vary depending on size, location and the range of choices you’ll make when parsing through the smaller details. For instance, the cost of opening a sandwich shop, pop-up restaurant, or other type of takeout restaurant will be much less than the cost involved in opening a 200-seat eatery in an upscale neighborhood. Some restaurant startup owners have tested their concept as a pop-up restaurant before opening a full-fledged restaurants. Potential costs might include: 

  • Lease security deposit/loan down payment
  • Business licenses
  • Legal/processing fees
  • Building improvements
  • Kitchen and cooking equipment
  • Tables, furniture and tableware
  • Ordering and payment technology (POS systems)
  • Signage and advertising
  • Lease/mortgage payments
  • Employee salaries
  • Food and beverage costs
  • Utilities
  • Insurance and permits
  • Miscellaneous expenses.

Company registration for restaurant business

There are many different ways that you can organize your business and the ownership structure, but not every type is viable for the foodservice industry. Here are 3 different types of business structures that you can use when setting up your restaurant.

Sole proprietorship

For instance, a sole proprietorship is the easiest business structure for single-person companies. You won’t have any paperwork to file with your state. But if a client sues you, there’s no distinction between personal and business assets.

Joint Stock Company

A joint-stock company is a business owned by its investors, with each investor owning a share based on the amount of stock purchased. Joint-stock companies are created in order to finance endeavors that are too expensive for an individual or even a government to fund.

Limited Liability Company

Forming an LLC can cost up to $500, and your state could take a few weeks to process the paperwork. However, an LLC shields a small business owner’s personal assets in the event of a lawsuit.

Get restaurant business licence

To start a new restaurant, you’ll need to obtain several federal, state, and local permits and licenses. It’s helpful to enlist legal counsel when filing for restaurant permits and licenses to make sure you don’t miss a step. These are some of the most important licenses required:

Business License – All restaurants require a business license to operate in the US. The type of business license you’ll need, the cost of the license, and how often you need to renew varies by state.

Employee Identification Number – Start the application for an Employee Identification Number (EIN) early in your process, because it can take some time to get approved. You’ll need an EIN to officially hire employees and set up your payroll.

Foodservice License – To get a foodservice license for your new restaurant, you’ll have to pass an inspection that shows your business meets all food safety regulations.

Liquor License – If you plan to serve alcohol at your restaurant, you’ll need a liquor license. Alcohol can boost your sales immensely, but the process of obtaining a liquor license can be lengthy and costly.

A business bank account will make it easier to keep your personal and business finances separate.

Separating business earnings and expenses from personal money makes bookkeeping and taxes far less complicated. When you know which transactions were related to your business, it’s much easier to calculate your income and track deductions.

Financing Your Business

When it comes to running a food business, many entrepreneurs think about the day to day operating expenses rather than start-up costs, which are the funds necessary to get the new business up and running. There are several options for financing the opening stages of a new food business, especially if you decide to start small and scale up.

The most common financing options for the restaurant business are:

  • Self-Finance
  • Soft Loans
  • Raising Money From Investors
  • Selling Shares
  • Bank Loan
  • Applying for Grants
  • Crowdfunding

Location and Lease a Commercial Space

When choosing a location for your new restaurant, the following factors are among the most important:

Visibility and Accessibility – Select a location with good visibility that receives plenty of vehicle and foot traffic. Consider parking availability and ease of access for cars and pedestrians.

Demographics – The target market of your restaurant should match the demographics of the area.

Labor Costs – Your labor cost will vary depending on location. In areas where the cost of living is higher, you’ll need to pay a higher wage to attract good employees.

Local Competition – You can learn a lot by looking at the competing restaurants in your area. The key is to choose a location where similar restaurants are successful, but avoid a neighborhood that is saturated with restaurants that directly compete with your concept.

When it comes to choosing a space, we recommend leasing. It allows you more flexibility if you decide to expand or make other business changes when first starting out.

Find an Equipment and Food Supplier

Before you can open your new restaurant, your kitchen must be outfitted with the right equipment. There are some types of equipment that every restaurant needs, like refrigeration units and cooking equipment. Depending on your menu, you might also need specialized equipment like pizza deck ovens or pasta cookers. The size and layout of your kitchen will affect some of your choices, like whether to choose narrow-depth equipment or to double stack units to save space. Another consideration is deciding whether to buy new or used restaurant equipment.

You’ll also need to find a supplier for food, disposables, and all the items you’ll reorder on a regular basis. Working with a supplier that offers membership discounts and free shipping saves you money when you order bulk supplies. Look for added benefits like the Webstaurant Rewards® Visa Business Card, which offers rewards for every WebstaurantStore purchase.

Hiring employees

Hiring the right talent and retaining them is one of the biggest challenges while running a restaurant business in India. Hiring through referral is very well accepted, with existing employees referring to their friends and family. As a first-time restaurateur, you can hire through the traditional way: set up an advertisement in the newspaper, put up ‘We’re hiring’ posters, or hire through agencies. There are also many active groups on Facebook and Linkedin, from where you can source talent.

Apply for business insurance

In this day and age, it’s important to have the necessary insurance coverage. Even if a company doesn’t require proof, the right insurance still protects you and your business. Other types of coverage you may need include commercial property, auto, cyber/data breach and business interruption insurance. Also require any subcontractors you use to be properly insured.

Finally, put your accounting systems in place. Keeping track of finances is vital to your business’s success, so having a formal process from the get-go is a must.
