I want to set up my own restaurant – How can you help?

Answer:
At FOOD MONDE, we offer bespoke hospitality consulting that can help you establish a unique and profitable restaurant in the UAE. We work hand-in-hand with you every step of the way, from creating a business plan and feasibility study, to developing the concept, creating your menu, finding a suitable location followed by a complete project execution and management. We cover all stages including pre-opening, opening, and ongoing management to ensure your restaurant is a success.

I have an idea for a restaurant concept – can you tell me if it’s viable for this market?

Answer:
Our in-depth feasibility studies will show you whether your restaurant concept is likely to succeed or not and where it would stand in the market versus direct or in-direct competitors.

Can you help select the best location for a new restaurant?

Answer:
Our Family Members are well-experienced in the UAE. Our friends from the real estate sectors help us in finding the ideal location with the required technical provisions for a given concept. We also conduct site feasibility and analyses for your concept to ensure the business model is adapted to suit the location.

How much does it cost to build a restaurant?

Answer:
The total investment or capital required for building a restaurant is subject to various factors including the menu, size and type of operation, and the number of units to be. It is critical to understand that in addition to the initial capital required to setup the restaurant, some amount of liquidity should be maintained for working capital needs for at least a period of 12 – 24 months following the restaurant opening, as the restaurant reaches a self-sustenance stage.

How long does a restaurant development take?

Answer:
The length of the process depends on where you are with your concept. If you already have a fully designed concept ready to go, the process can be quite quick, depending on a suitable location being found. However, if you need to create a restaurant brand from scratch, this will take a bit longer, as it is important to go through a detailed concept creation process to make sure you will be left with a brand as you imagined.

What if I have the restaurant already but I’m struggling to operate it?

Answer:
In addition to financial and strategic planning and project execution, our services include managing existing restaurant operations, to improve profitability and further expand the brand. We can provide a hands-on approach to identify areas under pressure where additional support might be needed.

How do I recruit the people?

Answer:
FOOD MONDE can help you recruit both back of house and front of house restaurant staff. We make sure that the recruited team is capable of reflecting your brands image in the best way you would ever want. We conduct a unique five star recruitment process that provides us with passionate staff that believes in your concept.
