1. Choosing The Location Of The Quick Service Restaurant, shortlist your staff and we do the rest
The location is one of the most critical factors which determine the success or failure of any restaurant. The takeaway restaurant should ideally be in a densely populated area, keeping the target audience in mind. Accessibility and visibility of the area are also essential to attract customers. Ground floor shops, located at the front are preferred for QSRs and Takeaways.
The store shop should be at least 150 sq ft in size to build a base kitchen. The counter and the serving area should not exceed 100 sq feet. Thus, for 250 sq feet, the minimum area.
You also need to make sure that the building has a proper water supply and drainage facility. You must also obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the owner that he has no problem subletting his space for a food business, and also from the neighbors. The NOC is required in obtaining the Local Municipal License, and Food license.
2. Licenses & GST Required For Opening A Quick Service Restaurant
A takeaway restaurant or a QSR primarily requires, GST registration, Local Municipal Corporation Health License, Police Eating House license, and fire license. Out of all, Food license, GST registration, and Local Municipal Corporation Health License are the most important ones to have for starting of the outlet. Fire license and the likes can be acquired once you commence restaurant operations; however, it is recommended to have all the permits in place before opening the outlet to keep yourself away from the legalities and small hiccups that come due to unavailability of these licenses.
Fire license can be obtained once you have Municipal Corporation’s health license. This can be done in the first two-three months of the operations.
