Restaurant Remodeling Experts

When it comes to restaurant construction or restaurant remodels, they have their very own specifics that need to be met. The restaurant itself must comply with the sanitary and fire regulations, ADA compliance, along with technological and environmental standards. Mix all that with the need to build an aesthetically pleasing front of the house decor to provide a comforting atmosphere for the patrons. We understand there is a fine balance with restaurants in regards to front of the house and back of the house (kitchen) needs. We can help improve processes for the overall restaurant functionality while meeting the "brand" your restaurant wishes to convey to the outside world.

If you feel that your restaurant is in need of a professional remodel, or you want to come up with an
absolutely new concept, CREW can help you achieve your goals.

CREW Builders will manage the entire project from the initial planning stage all the way through completion. This includes design and architecture, obtaining permits, managing specialized subcontractors, and full build-out. It allows for a seamless flow of information, fast decision-making, and the ability to adapt to changes efficiently. CREW provides innovative solutions to complex challenges, reducing the need for redesigns and costly changes during construction.

The Power of a Restaurant Remodel

A restaurant remodel isn't just about updating the decor; it's a strategic move that can revitalize your business in numerous ways:

Improved Decor

Improving the visual appeal of your restaurant through a comprehensive remodel offers a variety of benefits that extend beyond the surface. The foremost advantage lies in the improved aesthetics that instantly captivate and engage patrons. A renovated interior with contemporary design elements, comfortable color schemes, and thoughtfully curated décor creates an ambiance that stimulates customer interest and elevates their dining experiences. Visually pleasing surroundings goes beyond mere aesthetics, it sets the stage for positive first impressions, encouraging social media sharing, and fostering a lasting connection between your restaurant and its clientele. By investing in a restaurant remodel that prioritizes improved aesthetics, you’re not only maximizing the physical space but also establishing a distinct brand identity that resonates with customers.

Create a Better Work Flow

Beyond the visual facelift, the reimagining of a restaurant’s interior layout and design can improve operational efficiency. Smartly positioned tables can improve seating capacity, while strategically placed service stations help with staff workflows. The integration of modern kitchen equipment and technology can speed up the cooking process, leading to shorter wait times and increased customer satisfaction. Whether it’s a comfortable blend between the front of the house and kitchen, or the arrangement of dining areas, a restaurant remodel can redefine how the establishment functions.

Reinforce Your Brand

A restaurant remodel provides an opportunity to change not just the physical space, but to enforce your brand. Every color detail and piece of décor, along with smart layout creates a brand that speaks directly to patron’s perceptions. These changes not only recreate the visual appeal but also breathe new life into the brand itself. As the general changes are made to the old style that you've had (even if it's not old), they will make a huge difference.

Increase Staff Morale

A restaurant remodel has a remarkable ability to increase staff morale to a new level. Beyond the changes of the space itself, the renewal of a restaurant’s visual appeal can breathe fresh life and excitement to its employees. Witnessing the workplace undergoing a remodel creates a sense of pride while creating a renewed dedication to their roles. When the restaurant is finally finished and ready to welcome patrons, employees will have a greater sense of pride which will show with the welcoming of the diners.

Restaurant Kitchens

Building out a restaurant kitchen involves strategic planning, considering factors such as the layout, workflow efficiency, and adherence to health and safety regulations. CREW ollaborates with architects and engineers to create a space that blends with the demands of the menu. From selecting high-quality equipment to configuring the space for seamless operations, every decision impacts the kitchen's productivity and the overall dining experience. Attention to detail in plumbing, ventilation, and utility systems maintains a conducive environment for chefs and employees to create while upholding sanitary standards.

Theme and Decor

The creative team at CREW can help you design the look and feel!
