Pop up restaurants and boutique cafes are on the rise thanks to trendy, small business restaurants becoming more popular among consumers. Whether it’s upscale dining or farm-to-table eating, more and more people are starting seeking a restaurant business loan to finance their culinary concept.
The trouble is, banks often times see these start ups as “too risky,” so it can be difficult to get pre-approved for such loans. Especially if you trying to get a loan with bad credit or no credit. Even if you get pre-approved for a restaurant business loan, it can take a lot of time and paperwork to go through.

We also promise to work quickly so you can get started on your project right away—we know nobody wants to wait to start their dream job!

What Expenses Should I Consider When Applying for A Restaurant Business Loan?
So how much does it cost to open a restaurant? The answer is different for everyone depending on the size and scope of your restaurant project. However, there are some universal costs that every restaurateur must consider:
Commercial Lease: Even if you’re thinking about a catering service and not a traditional restaurant space, you’ll likely still need to lease a commercial space and factor your monthly rent into your expenses.
Restaurant Renovations: Once you’ve got your space, the next step is to get it looking like how you want it! Restaurant business loans can be used toward remodeling and renovating.
Equipment & Food Stock: In addition to the actual food you’ll need to feed your customers, you’ll also need tables, chairs, napkins, utensils, plates, and everything else that makes the space comfortable!
Insurance For Your Restaurant: If people are coming to your space to order or enjoy a meal, you’ll need insurance to protect yourself against several things: property damage, equipment damage, premises liability, crime and workers’ compensation.
Food & Liquor Licenses: Restaurant business loans can help cover the cost of any license you many need to get your food establishment up and running.
Benefits & Wages: Wages for your employees and benefits will all need to be considered, as well as any safe food handling certifications or trainings for your kitchen staff.
Marketing Costs: Websites, print collateral or any other marketing campaigns you wish to do can require a small, but still substantial investment.
