As a dynamic sector, we understand that restaurant operators are catering for an increasingly demanding market. With demand rising for anything from premium or casual dining to flexible, all-day formats, there is the need to be creative in the way the offer is delivered, as never before. We understand that you need to be responsive to your audience’s changing requirements and, reflecting this, as professional advisers we know that we need to be proactive and able to respond fast to support you. In this way you can ensure scarce sites are secured swiftly and opening timetables are kept on track, to help you stay one step ahead of the competition.
Our experts are familiar with all of the issues around buying and selling businesses as going concerns, as well as dealing with property points – whether it be standalone or portfolio acquisitions and disposals, leases or dealing with property disputes. This is supplemented by the ability to cover licensing requirements and advise on regulatory issues – such as health and safety, food safety and new requirements on food labelling when it comes to allergens.
Acting for restaurateurs of all sizes – from operators of a handful of venues through to multi-site, national chains – means that our specialist team have identified some key trends when it comes to issues which affect businesses in the sector. Read our guide for restaurant operators here.
