Ok all my wife and I are in the planing stages of opening a new fast casual restaurant and would love to bounce some numbers and ideas off the group. Please be gentle or at least use lube :-)
Our place will be an homage to flavor, sustainability and charm serving “Super Delicious” Artisanal Sandwiches, Soups & Salads in a relaxed, casual environment.
Your taste buds will travel the world while enjoying locally sourced ingredients close to home. An eclectic collection of flavor profiles combines to give each sandwich, soup and salad world fusion flavors. Crusty artisanal breads are baked fresh each day on premises and paired with meats and poultry marinated overnight before being lovingly smoked or cooked in our rotisserie.
All of our Soups and Salads are made fresh and from scratch along with our original spreads, dressings and sauces. Wherever available, our ingredients are sourced locally with flavor, health and sustainability being our core focus. We endeavor to utilize certified green materials, products and energy as well as compostable materials and we recycle everything possible.
We plan on a space of approximately 1,500 sqft with seating for 40-60. You will order at the counter and a runner will bring the food to your table or the take out counter. We are still a little up in the air as to whether or not to make the kitchen open or not. We do want to display the soups and salads at the order counter.

We are anticipating about $200,000 in start up expenses including the total cost of operations for 3 months. We are self funding this so will not have any loans.
WE are looking forward to any help and advice the group might be willing to offer!
