The success of any food venture is correlated with its location. Food businesses in Pakistan are profitable because of their ideal locality. There are many important factors to keep in mind when one looks for a location for their food business.
Here are 5 things to consider when selecting a real-life food business location:
For a new restaurant or food business having its own parking space that provides safety is a key aspect. Especially when you have a diverse age group of people dining in at your venue.
2. Accessibility & Visibility for all
Remember having difficulty finding your favourite food place and then getting turned off because it took a while to find it every time. That’s not what you want for your business. When finding a location for your business make sure it’s accessible and easy to locate.
3. Population Size of Location
For any food business to become successful it is considerably important to see the population size of the area it is opening in. A place with very few people residing is not an ideal location for a food business.
In demographics like Pakistan, having a significant population nearby adds convenience and ease for businesses to operate. Having enough people and a busy location where you plan to establish your mark allows businesses to thrive within a few months of opening
4. Standard of Living of Community
When planning to look out for a location for your business, one must know the standard of living of the community they are opening in. If your business offers a high-end menu it is likely to be placed in a community and area where people prefer quality items on the menu and are willing to pay for them. In a community where the standard of living is relatively lower, what matters in that community is affordable pricing.
5. Competitor’s Analysis
Before stepping foot in a location it is best to understand your competitors and how well are they doing in that locality. Is there a need for your food business to be in that location? This is the question you should ask before stepping in. Also, understand why the previous businesses were successful in that location and what caused the failure of the ones that closed down.
Considering a location with existing 3 burger ventures and you plan to launch another one will likely not be successful due to its existing presence. But if you plan to open a pizza outlet in an untapped location, you are most likely to grab customers with your location, service and quality. a
When choosing the ideal location for your food business, make an informed decision by understanding your costs, customer analysis and competitors’ existing presence to start on the right foot.
