How can I open a restaurant?
That’s the big question.
National Restaurant Design designer and consultant, Frank Stocco, has a variety of clients: food service entrepreneurs, chefs, architects, and foodservice equipment companies. Anyone who is opening a restaurant needs expertise in foodservice design and layout, and also needs CAD drawings for project planning and a smooth opening. If this is your first food service venture, even your second or third, Frank will assist you with concept development, concept drawings, and full drawing packages of the CAD files you need for equipment bids, while meeting the codes for the city and drawings for the contractors. The drawings and specification guides provided are great tools for getting "competitive" equipment bids which can save you a lot of money in the start-up. Frank works collaboratively with you, as well as architects if needed, and others such as interior designers and graphic designers.
National Restaurant Design doesn’t sell anything so there is no conflict of interest; we offer only professional service and price based on square footage of the space.
