How 3D Renderings Can Help When Converting Empty Retail Office Spaces Into Bars, Restaurant and Cafes

As the pandemic begins receding in North America, many people who are sick of being stuck at home, want to create more of a sense of community again and have some entrepreneurial flare are looking around and seeing lots of vacant commercial spaces that would be perfect to repurpose and reopen as a bar, restaurant or cafe. If that sounds like you, there is lots to consider. What type of establishment are you going to create? How will it be themed? Are you going to run it yourself or will you need to hire staff? Will you need to get council approval? Do you have the funds to develop any empty space from scratch, or would you be better off getting a vacant property that is already set up with a kitchen and other elements you’ll need to make your venture a success? If this is your first time as an entrepreneur, there are probably plenty of questions going through your head and it might be a bit overwhelming. If you can, it’s worthwhile seeking help and mentorship from someone who has been through the process already. A restaurant owner, or a developer for example, is likely to have knowledge of the obstacles you’ll face and how best to overcome them. You might also find it useful to know that there are ways you can set yourself up for success, like using 3D renderings to visualize and plan out your space before you start the renovation process, which can save you a lot of time and money in the process.

The easiest way to start up a food or beverage business will be to find a space which has already been used as one in the past. In this case, the premises is likely to already have the necessary permits, amount of available parking and other legal requirements which could otherwise cause you headaches. It’s much more difficult to add parking spaces than it is to rent and install a fridge for instance. With much of North America coming out of lockdown and so many vacant commercial properties on the market, now might be the perfect time to create that restaurant, bar or cafe you’ve always dreamed of owning!
