Getting Your New Restaurant Open on Schedule - Timeline & To-Dos

You’re gearing up to open your very own restaurant, and your concept is just crazy enough to work.

What do you do now?

Here’s a non-exhaustive rundown of what to do, and when, to get your shop open by its target soft open date.

Get Legal

First, the boring stuff: apply for the appropriate state and local licenses. Requirements vary by jurisdiction, but you’ll almost certainly need a certificate of occupancy and (down the line) certification from your local health department. If you plan to serve alcohol, you’ll need a liquor license as well.

Lay Out a Comprehensive Construction and First-Year Budget With Revenue Projections

If you don’t feel up to this, work with a capable accountant or — better yet — numbers-minded business partner to develop a realistic budget and near-term revenue projections.

You’re going to lose money during your first year of operations; the question is how much and whether you can survive the hit.

Set Up a Staging Area

No matter how dusty your restaurant renovation or construction site gets, you’ll need a reasonably organized onsite work area to gather your thoughts, complete paperwork, and process deliveries.

According to experienced restaurateurs, this sort of staging area is key to an on-time open.

Set Hours for Your Establishment

Review this guide to setting restaurant hours, conduct a foot and vehicle traffic analysis at your site, and speak with local (non-competitor) peers to get a sense of when your establishment should be open.

There’s no point in staying open early if you can’t reasonably expect to draw any bar traffic — or closing before 5 pm if there’s enough demand for dinner in your area.

Schedule Staff Interviews

Starting hiring for management positions four to six weeks out; hire line workers with two to three weeks to spare.

Identify an offsite location to conduct interviews without construction noise in the background — your management company’s office works fine.

Power Through Fixture & Equipment Installation

Get your restaurant’s fixtures and kitchen equipment installed with a couple weeks to spare. You’ll want to have plenty of time to make layout or design changes, make sure everything works properly, and exchange any defective or missing parts from your order.

If you can afford it, hire an interior designer or traffic optimization consultant.

Get Front-of-House Systems Ready for Prime Time

Install your POS and ordering interfaces well ahead of your soft open date and test them extensively. Your customers won’t easily forgive a POS crash on your first day in business.

Run a Trial Service

Last, but not least: a few days before your soft open date, put it all together in a trial service (though you won’t call it that) for friends and family of staff and ownership.

This is your chance to make sure everything runs reasonably smoothly before paying customers walk through the door.

Keep Your Eye on the Ball

In the restaurant business, timing is everything. You lose money every day your restaurant’s doors remain closed — and sap what little goodwill you’ve managed to build ahead of your planned opening.

It’s true that projected opening dates are just that: projections. It’s also true that new restaurants commonly miss their soft open targets; many blow through their grand opening dates as well.

That such tardiness is commonplace doesn’t make it any more excusable. It’s on you to avoid it at all reasonable costs.

10 Things that Blogging Teaches You to Skyrocket Your Business (11th is a Surprise for you)

I have said many times, "blogging is the best online business." But Why I say this? Not just because I make a lot of money with my blogging efforts but because blogging has changed my life for good.

For professional money may be everything but for an entrepreneur, money is just the way to grow and achieve more than just money.

When I say that blogging has changed my life, it means that it has made my life meaningful.

Blogging is the most beautiful thing that has happened to me and many others like me.

Today I am going to share how blogging has made my life beautiful.

It means I am going to share the ten things that blogging has taught me and the same things that blogging teaches you.


10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Other people are reading: Professional Blogging is different

But for this, you have to make one promise with me.

Don't worry;
I am not asking your kidneys!


Just promise me that you will be passionate about blogging.

I believe you can do this.

10 Things that Blogging Teaches You

So let's get back to the topic and uncover the ten things that blogging teaches you.

1) Writing:

Writing: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

The blogging teaches you to become a better writer.

Most of the people think that blogging is just about writing blogs.

I am not against what they are saying, but that is not the complete truth.

Blogging is way more than just writing.

Even if you believe that it is about writing then I say that;
Blogging is about becoming a better an influential writer.

You can not become famous overnight.

You have to work hard, learn from others, fix your writing errors, and develop narrative writing skills to become a better writer.


You can also use proofreading tools to improve your writing.

But, still, it is not just about writing.

Let's see what more blogging teaches you.

2) Reading/Learning:

Reading: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Now, this is what most people find funny.

But, if you are a blogger or I can say an A-list blogger then you understand the importance of reading in the blogging business.

Remember: "The more you learn, the more you earn." How? I will explain this later.

But for now, I tell you that the more you learn, the more knowledge you gain.

More knowledge about your niche or topic will help you write better articles. This way learning helps you to become a better writer.

Learning also helps you to grow from a school student to a scholar.

When you learn the blogs of established people, publications, magazines and everything which is related to your niche, these things enrich your knowledge.

And you will have more ideas to write and influence the people.

Blogging also helps you become a better reader.

A better reader not only read the words but learn the way words are formatted and placed in the content.

Blogging gives you the ability to understand the difference between compelling and meaningless content.

3) Improve Grammar:

Improve Grammar: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

90% of the blogs in this world who are not native English speaker must admit that they make grammatical mistakes when writing content such as blog posts, resume, letters, etc.

Some people may blame you for grammatical errors, but I never blame you.

Because I know that the language you speak is always the most beautiful language for you.

But at the same time, we all have the right to improve.

If you want to improve your English, then you should start a blog.

In the beginning, you can use tools like Grammarly to improve English and grammar mistakes.

This is the easiest way to improve your English grammar without letting anyone else noticing it.

And if you think you cannot improve your English than think again or think about me.

"I study in a school where the Hindi Language was everything. I was a brilliant student, but my English was not that good as compared to convent schools. I tried everything but always had a hard time with grammar.

By my story changed when I started blogging. I started learning how others are writing. What tenses they are using. I also started using Grammarly to improve my English, and now it is much better than my past."

Moral of my story is: "If I can improve my English then you also can."

Now let's talk about the growth part of blogging business and find out what blogging teaches a full-time blogger.

4) Optimization:

Optimization: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Optimization is the key to grow your business online.

Blogging pushes you to learn SEO so that you can focus on
Optimization is necessary to attract the visitors, influence them to become subscribers and motivate them to visit again and again.

Remember: No-one wants to visit a site that looks broken or messy.

We all like a website or blog which is easy to navigate, clean in design, load faster, have eye-catching titles, punchlines, engaging content, etc.

When you fall in love with blogging, you will start learning every single step to optimize your site or blog.

This not only helps your blog but also help you find many clients who will hire you to do the optimization job.

This means you have more work and money.

An optimized site tells the visitor that you are serious about your business and also serious about user experience.

Blogging is all about caring for others, and an optimized blog is the first step.

5) Monetization:

Monetize: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Blogging teaches you something that most of the world does not understand.

We all work for money.

Blogging teaches you the way to monetize your skills or your blog content.

You can monetize your blog in various methods such as;
These are the just a few examples of how you can monetize your blog.

This is not all.

Blogging gives you the skill to make more money by selling your skills.

You can become ghostwriter, content writer or ebook writer and get paid to write for others.

Blogging gives you a business which you can run on full time.

The more you expand your business, the more money you can earn.

6) Use of latest technologies:

Technologies: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

This is also something that most of the world does not understand.

To become a better blogger, you need to learn the use of latest technologies such as;
These are many other technologies are there that only bloggers, marketers, and webmasters can understand.

For ordinary people, these are alien words.

This gives you confidence and feeling of positive superiority.

Using the latest technologies help your business and also establish you as a pro blogger.

7) Build Connections:

Build connections: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Blogging teaches you to be social.

Now you may be thinking, "How can I be social when I am too shy."

This is the beauty of the blogging that even shy people can build connections with the influencers.

The first thing is that you need not to go in front of the person to build connections or get social.

You can do it with your writing, social sharing, on social networks or even through emails.

This means you can connect with even the industry leaders with your influential writings.

But this will take time, so you need to have patience.

You never know that someday some celebrity is begging you to write about him/her.

Do you think I am joking?

No, I am not. I am serious about what I am saying.
Perezhilton.com is the perfect example of this. The guy was no one but his blog PerezHilton has made celebrities freak out. Some celebrities want him to write more and want to pay him from stop paparizing about them.

This is the power of blogging.

It turns you from nothing to something.

8) Freedom and more:

Freedom: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Freedom is what we want.

This is what George Washington has fought for, and this is also the goal of Mahatama Gandhi and many others.

We proudly say that we have freedom, but when it comes to work and money, we work days and nights like slaves to fulfill our dreams.

Why?

Is this freedom?

I must say, this is not complete freedom.

Complete freedom only comes to those who strive to launch new ideas and be creative enough to influence others.

This is what blogging offer you.

Blogging gives you a chance to be unique, be bold, be influential and be productive.

When you become a full-time blogger you earn two types of freedom at the same time;
There is one more freedom that every single person in this world wants, and that is "Money Freedom."

When I say money freedom, it means you are the only owner of your money. No one can take it back from you. You earn as much as you want by working with skills.

Not just that but blogging also bring name and fame. As your blog become famous, you also become popular. You grow your presence with your blog.

When you have all these, then you can live the ultimate premium lifestyle.

9) Gratitude:

Gratitude: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme
In today's world, people are so busy running after money and trying to show off that they forget the beauty of humanity.

Blogging teaches you the blessing of this world, and that is gratitude.

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful, to show appreciation and to return the kindness.

Gratitude is the most beautiful thing I have ever discovered in the blogging business.

You may have seen that when you thank someone from your heart ta that moment, you have an immense amount of satisfaction and happiness.

People have lost this art of happiness due to commodity living.

Blogging teaches you, or I can say is that the more you give, the more you receive.

You may have seen me featuring many bloggers, and you may be thinking why I do this?

I do this just because they find me helpful and they did something for me that make me thankful or who are helping each other.

Remember: Other business teaches you cut-throat competition, blogging business teaches you the art of living.

10) Understanding others:

Understand: 10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Blogging teaches you the way to understand others and their psychology.

To become a better blogger, you need to understand the reader's interest, buyer personas and clients requirements.

The knowledge you gain during your blogging journey will help you quickly target the potential subscribers and buyers.

This makes you more influential.

Now, It is the time to surprise you.

11) About me:

10 Things that Blogging Teaches You (11 is a Surprise for you): eAskme

Are you surprised!

There is no doubt that if you are my blog or reading my blog, that means blogging teaches you about me also.

You find out more about me here.

Not just about me but blogging also teaches you to learn about yourself. The more you understand yourself, the more focus you can put on your blogging business.

Where You Can Find Professional Proofreading Services

It is okay to make mistakes in life. But there are a few scenarios where mistakes cannot be considered a

light thing. When a teacher repeatedly makes mistakes during the lecture, the students will either start
to think the mistake isn’t a mistake or they will lose respect for the teacher thinking he or she doesn’t
know enough to teach them.

When people, books, and newspapers are telling us something, it is important that they state it clearly without any mistakes. A small mistake in a newspaper can cause big troubles for some.

An incorrect death report or a wrong name of the culprit can cause a lot of grief to the concerned parties which is why mistakes should be avoided at all costs when it comes to newspapers and books.

Anything that is imparting knowledge to humans must be free of mistakes of all kinds. Whether it is a
missing dot on the i or an incorrect sentence, a mistake is a mistake and should be eliminated before the

written material reaches people. Proofreading services have been helping humans get rid of the
mistakes for many years now.

When you are texting with a friend and accidentally send a typo, what do you do? You tell them the
right word. If you make one typo, your friend will be able to understand your conversation, but if you
add too many typos or missing words, your messages will be hard to read for anyone.

And the worst thing is, you can’t go back to your previous message and correct your mistakes. This is, however, a problem that you won’t face during proofreading. Proofreaders check electronic material for mistakes and replace the incorrect words with the correct ones.

Like all other services, you just can’t hand over your document to anyone for proofreading.

Proofreading may not look that complex on the surface, but only professional proofreaders can handle it. Today, proofreading can work its magic on many things. Whether you want a document proofread or your website, professional proofreading services can take care of everything. You must choose the right translation agency for proofreading services, or you will only be wasting your money on nothing.

Where Can You Find Proofreading Services?

The best and easiest way to find someone is with the help of the internet. The internet lets you check
reviews so you can find the best service provider from a list. Google also adds the rating of each
business out of 5, so it can help people decide. When it comes to professional proofreading services,
you need to find the best translation agency and the best proofreaders, so they don’t mess up your
work.

When you are in need of professional proofreading services, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a
translation agency like Universal Translation Services that can provide you brilliantly proofread content.

at reasonable rates. Professional and qualified translators can pull off the most difficult of tasks.
Proofreading is comparatively easier than certified translation, but it still requires the hands of a
professional. So get in touch with a good translation agency and let them handle your proofreading
woes for you.

Gaurav Kumar : My Blogging Journey So Far (spent $80,000+) Infographic

Today is another good day in my blogging journey got paid $250 to ride just 250KMS on my own bike.

After completing 4 years as a professional Blogger. I have decided to write my own blogging journey to help others to start blogging as a very serious career choice. This can be boring or a bit lengthy, as this is about me and my journey as a professional blogger till now.

People are asking me that how much I am earning, here I am sharing what I have spend, to help you find the answer.

What I have earned more than just money in 3 years:

My monthly expenses are around $1100. I must tell you that I do not include my investments in this. Other than that I have earned.

  2. Tvs Motorcycle worth $1000 (2015)

My Blogging Journey : From Start

First three months of blogging:

I started blogging just to try new things to make money online. In September of 2013, I started my first blog on the BlogSpot platform which was related to news. I was sharing worldwide news, events and author views. I got a lot of appreciation on my blog from people around the globe. I purchased a domain and hosting from Hostgator and migrated my blogspot blog to WordPress

Selecting a domain name + Hosting

By the first four months, I understood the importance of branding in the online world. I bought a domain and hosting from Hostgator because of their best service. Here is the complete domain name guide for you to help to choose the domain name.

How my niche changed?

In the beginning on eAskme, I was writing about only tech stuff that you may have seen on other blogs also, but later I started writing about my own experiences, Blogging, Wordpress, money making tips and designing tips.

As I started writing everything that I have learned from my own experience, people started liking my blog.

My First Income:

As I mentioned, I started blogging just to try new things. I had no idea how to make money with Adsense ow what is SEO. I was just a hobby blogger. After some time I have learned about AdSense one of the most popular contextual ad network.

I read a lot of blogs about SEO and experimenting everything. I still remember how I earned my first $20 from Chitika. That was the very first online income I had received; after that, I started using Adsense and it turned me to make $500 in the very first month.

See : Make $100 Per day with Adsense

Hobby blogger to Professional blogging:

Back in June of 2013, I quit full time job and started working as a professional blogger. It was not an easy decision for me as the hardest thing was to convince my family. But I made my decision and started working for what I liked to do. I started making good money to fulfill my daily needs and to make some good investment. I have created my very own blogging business plan and I decided to take eAskme to the next level.

I have just purchased Kawasaki Z250 Super Naked Street fighter worth $5,481.

Partnership with another Blogger:

Around January of 2014, I partnered with a Mohali-based blogger to take our blogging journey to next level, but things didn’t come up in a good way so I moved back to my own blogging goals. So I always suggest you avoid partnership as it hardly lasts.

My Venture:
Gaurav Kumar : My Blogging Journey So Far (spent $71,339)


Till now my vision and dream and vision are to make blogging a full-time career choice and most popular online business in India. I have big dreams about my blogs and I will surely touch them with my dedication and love of my readers.

Current Blog Network:

I am currently managing many blogs on my network. It is not an easy task to work on multiple blogs and maintain a strong social media presence these days. You need to establish a team of professionals who can work on all blogs with complete dedication. What I look in a person before hiring is that he should do blogging for passion not just for money.

I divide work in my team and set the target for them to achieve. I usually work on promoting 3-4 blogs at a time. This includes writing social media presence, commenting, guest posts etc.
At this moment we have following blogs in our network:

eAskme, iOS Crunch, WikiHealthBlog,are few of my latest examples.

Future Plans:
It is the dream of every company to grow as big as it can be and cover maximum market share. But the biggest problem is to find the best team. Your team determines the future of your online company or business. Currently, I am setting up the plan for my online business.
Earning from Blogging:

"Earning" this word is the most interesting part of the life of a professional blogger. If I never quit my job then maybe earning only $5000-$10,000 per year. But with blogging and with my other online activities, I am making more than $50K every year, which is a good reason to quit my job.

The very best thing I like about blogging is that I am my own boss now. I work whenever I want and work on what I love to do. I am sharing my story so you should take blogging seriously and make your decision.

Domain Name Structure:

Domain Name Structure : Domain name guide : easkme

It is realy necessary that you should understand the domain name structure in this domain name guide. In above domain name structure you see that there are various things which complete it. Let`s understand these.

Prefix:

For a domain prefix shows that internet protocol of your domain name. HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol. This shows how data is transmitted and formatted. It also shows the talk between browsers and web servers.

There are two types of HTTP available these days
1) HTTP : These are standard
2) HTTPS : These are secured

Sub-Domain:

Sub-domain is a subdivision of a domain. It shows at the place of WWW. It always works with primary domain.

For example: in http://whatisthis.eample.com, whatisthis is a sub-domain.

Domain Name:
It includes two things.

1) Domain

This is the name that you register online. When you buy a domain name you will find one domain in two versions.

1) WWW :         http://www.easkm.com is a domain name with www.
2) Non WWW : http://www.easkme.com is a Non www domain

Important Tip:
It is always recommended that you verify both domain names in Google Analytics to make search engine understand that you are the owner of both versions and use Canonical tag to show that the content is not copied it is just the same domain with both versions.

 <link rel="canonical" href="https://easkme.com/" />

2) Domain Extension

Choosing a domain name extension is as important as choosing a domain name. Always choose a Top Level Domain extension (TLD) for your blog or website. It is located after the . of domain name. There are various TLD`s available online.

Choosing a Domain Name Extension:

As I have already mentioned, Choosing a domain name extension is as important as choosing a domain name. It is always recommended to choose a Top Level Domain Extension (TLD).

There are 1500+ top level domain extensions available for you to choose.

I categories Top Level Domains extensions in 3 categories:

Why you should not go for free subdomains?


I have seen many times that people send me their blogs with free sub-domains such as example.blogspot.com or example.wordpress.com. Free is not always the best option.

Why choosing a sub-domain is not a good decision?

When you are choosing a free sub domain from blogging services, you actually giving the full control of your content to those websites, which are proving free sub domains to you.


Must read : Why you should buy a custom domain

It is also not good for branding as no matter how much you promote it, it only help the main domain to become a brand.

What to do instead of choosing a free domain name?

You should always choose a custom domain name. As this give you full control over the domain name. You can even add your own subdomains.

It is also not costly as you can choose it on very low price for a year or 2 years or five years or 10 years.

Objectives and Goals of a Domain name:

Complete Domain Name Guide : How to Choose a Domain (5600 Words)

When choosing a domain name it is also necessary that you should think about
  • Why you want a domain?
  • What is the main purpose?
  • Who is the target Audience?
  • What is the topic of the blog?
  • What do you want to achieve
  • What style and tone your site or blog carry?

Till now you have learned the following answers in Domain guide:

  1. What is a domain name?
  2. What is domain name structure?
  3. What is domain name extension?
  4. What are the top level domain name extensions (TLDs)?
  5. Why you should not go for free sub domains?
Now it is the time to understand what factors to consider when choosing a domain name?

Remarkable tips to choose a domain name:

Complete Domain Name Guide : How to Choose a Domain (5600 Words)

1) Always choose a unique domain name:

When you want to buy a domain name the very first thing is that you should consider choosing a unique domain name.

Choosing a unique domain name is really necessary ot make your blog a brand. If you want to market yourself like John Chow then you can choose a domain name mix of your first name and last name such as JohnChow.com.

It is not that bad to choose a domain name with your own name but if you are trying to build a blog or run an online business then choosing a domain name with your own name is not a good idea.

The very first step is that you should try to buy a domain name similar to your business name. You can do a domain research on Google or on domain registrar service to find out if the domain your are looking for available or already registered.

2) Brainstorming:

All one word domains have already been registered. So you might not be able to find one word domain name for your blog. In such a case you should use a mix of two or three words to find the best possible solution for your domain name.

3) Memorable : easy to type, easy to remember

The most common mistake which mostly people do when choosing a domain name is buying domain names with fancy and wrong words.

You should always think that if a common person can`t remember the words of a domain how can he/she type that domain.

Let me make it clear for you:

For example : If you want to buy techtricks.com, but you see that domain name is not available for purchase or domain is already registered, than you buy a domain name such as techtrikz.com.

Now you see techtriks.com and techtrikz.com both sound similar, but when you tell someone that you have a blog or site name techtrickz.com, they will always remember and open techtricks.com.

So unintentionally your mistake will lead the other site get more traffic.

Instead of that is you buy alltechtriks.com, this is really easy to type and easy to remember.

I am sure you do not want to do that mistake.

So it is always good that you try various combinations and buy a domain name which is easy to remember and easy to type.

4) Use Keywords 

It is always recommended that you should use the target keyword in domain also. If you want to start a blog or a micro niche blog than using keyword in domain is really helpful to rank higher as compare to those who are not using keywords in domain name.

5) First choice Always .Com

Have you thought for a second that when someone tells you that he has xyz site, you automatically put .com in the end of it to open it.

Now you know that .Com is the extension which is widely living in the minds of every common person.

Read more : How to get free .Com domain`

When you say a website the first thing which hit the mind is .Com.

Over 75% sites worldwide using .Com extension. It is always the most recommended Top level domain extension.

It makes the domain easy to remember.

But what is .Com is not available for your domain. In such case you should go for other TLDs or ccTLDs or gTLDs.

6) Brandable:

Domain name is your brand online. A brandable domain name is a domain which speaks for itself. It tells what the site is all about.

For example: Domain iOSCrunch.com shows that it is related to iOS and its updates. It is also an easy to brand domain name.

You can even look at the top 100 brandable domain names shared by DailtTekk.

7) Short is better:

A short name is always easy to remember. But it is not easy to find short names, if that you case you can go for a mix of two or three words domain.

For example if you are looking for a domain name AskMe, but Askme is not available. So you can choose Wikiaskme.com

Tip:
Never use acronym as for a common person it is not easy to remember acronyms.

8) Avoid trademark issues:

The biggest fatal error is trademark issues because of domain name conflicts. When choosing a domain name it is always recommended that you should check trademark terms here to avoid any trademark issues.

Do you know that trademark issue can kill your website or blog and take down your online business?

For example: If you use Facebook in domain name, it is direct violation of Facebook and company can sue you.

9) Avoid hyphens or numbers

If you are using hyphens or numbers in your domain name that means you are clearly ignoring the 3rd factor which we have discussed in third domain guide. Which is Easy to remember, Easy to
type.

It is not easy for a common person to remember the use of hyphen and numbers.

For example if you tell a person that you have a domain name abc-xyz.com. People always type abcxyz and forget hyphen.

In case if you say that if you have a domain name abc2xyz, people will always type abctoxyz. So it is not easy to them what you want to say.

It always confuse users and misguide them to visit some other sites.

10) Trendy misconception:

I have seen many newbie bloggers and businesses fall for the latest trend domains, but they forget the fact that trends always change. So when the trend changes their domain becomes unattractive.

IWiring evergreen content is important but choosing an evergreen domain name is mush more important than that.

11) Your Domain is you Best Friend or Worst Enemy

Do not make any mistake while choosing a domain name. Many peopel choose a domain without thinking professionally or without doing any research and after sometime they find that domain is  not that attractive or informational or a best representative of their business.

You cannot rename a domain, the only thing is to replace it and if you replace the domain all your efforts, time and money you spent on domain earlier will be lost.

12) What Social Network Tells?

In this domain name guide I also like to mention that when choosing a domain name you should also check it`s social influence of people. Always go fr the domain name which is easy to brand and can easily make it place on social networks. You can also use Knowem tool to check the brandability of a domain name on social networks.
