Things to Consider Before Starting a Steakhouse

Steakhouses have faced a new set of challenges since more diners began eating more at home and utilizing takeout and delivery. In the past, the major profit center of a steakhouse was being able to offer cocktails, wine, and beer. Also, delivering a quality steak experience in a take-out box has proven to be a challenge. After meat tastes best when it’s pulled straight from the grill and served.

Many steakhouses are steeped in tradition and it isn’t easy to replicate the same experience at home. One notable example is Lawry’s in Los Angeles. Lawry’s serves prime cut rib on stainless steel carts wheeled in beside your table so you can see how they carve the steaks. Carvers earn a medallion for training for six months just to carve meat properly.

Lawry’s steaks are served with a side of mashed potatoes, creamed corn, and creamed spinach. There’s also the showmanship of their servers as they spin and toss your salads under a bowl of ice. Complimenting the meal is the popular crisp Yorkshire pudding, which you use to mop up the au jus.

As extravagant as this all sounds, most steakhouses aren’t like Lawry’s. Most of the chain restaurants offer a similar casual dining experience that requires less staff training.

So what are the things you need to consider before opening your own steakhouse? Keep in mind that your sit-down service could be limited for awhile. One way to combat dining restrictions is to offer a large area of outdoor seating.

Another option is to start thinking about your takeout and to-go menu. What kind of steak sandwiches or high-quality burgers can you serve that match the theme of your restaurant? This outside the box thinking is what you need to give yourself the best odds of success in this rapidly changing industry.

Whichever steakhouse setup you’ll like to start in the future, make sure to write a business plan for it first. Think hard about your concept, your marketing strategy with your slogan, and your target market. Take the time to understand your costs and realistic revenue projections.
