If you’re thinking about opening your own restaurant in the near future, then you need to know the lingo. There are many different kinds of restaurants that are spread out across the country. Beyond making sure your establishment is environmentally-friendly, you also want to carve out your own niche. Capitalize on something popular while finding ways to stand out from your competitors.
Fast food chains started to grow due to the development of our society and how convenience became king over many other priorities. Most of them are chains, and franchising can be unexpectedly expensive. That’s why you may be better off opening an eatery that isn’t tied to a massive corporation.
In recent years, the fast-casual restaurant has become more prominent. Although a step above fast food tier on the list, the difference lies in preparation and presentation. Open kitchens are common and better-quality ingredients are emphasized over the ones commonly served in fast-food restaurants. Cafes, bistros, and pubs all fall under the umbrella of fast-casual. Casual style dining is at the high end of the fast-casual spectrum, where the meals are offered at a fair price but guests still get the experience of sitting down and receiving table service.
Running a fine dining establishment carries much more responsibility. This is where the restaurant is more upscale, serves much more expensive fare, and often has certain expectations of how the guests dress and behave while enjoying their meal. Elite service and elegance is the name of the game, and the chefs are often world-famous and are celebrities in their own right.
Food trucks can be pricey, but the experience is amazing, as is the food. They are inexpensive to start up and very little overhead or labor costs to worry about compared to other types of restaurant concepts. A business plan, a menu, a concept for what you want to do, and a catchy name are some of the most important parts of keeping a food truck in business.
Pop-ups are also trendy as a way for newer chefs to make their name in the industry. They don’t last long but often carry fun themes that attract customers in droves. Fundraising, along with trying out something new, is often the motivation behind a hip new pop-up.
