"Optimising profits, whilst delivering a sustainable and consistently outstanding experience for diners."

Buying or Investing in a New Restaurant

Buying or investing in a new restaurant, or operating an independent restaurant or small chain, can present a host of challenges in today’s fiercely competitive and demanding market. Not least of the challenges is optimising profits, whilst delivering a sustainable and consistently outstanding experience for diners.

Not that many restaurants achieve this operating objective – many more have the potential, but fail to realise it!

At HBD we work with restaurant owners and investors, whether they have existing premises or are buying or investing in a new restaurant, to develop successful, sustainable and profitable establishments.


By helping you create and deliver a unique, outstanding and compelling dining experience for each key target group of diners.

Our no nonsense expertise can help you to: –

  • Set realistic expectations and objectives
  • Maximise sustainable returns on investment
  • Minimise financial exposure
  • Communicate with target diner groups, intelligently, both online and offline
  • Deliver the dining experience, time after time
  • Grow the business asset
  • Secure regular, positive ‘word of mouth’ endorsements that follow an outstanding customer experience

We will also help you to avoid the common reasons for failure. These include: –

  • Not having the right stakeholders involved
  • Being ‘burned’ by market cycles – e.g. buying high, selling low
  • Not understanding your location and the factors that could cause it, and your investment, to weaken
  • Poor capital and liquidity assumptions
  • Over leveraging
  • Significant cost overruns
  • Inefficient operational process
  • Unable to keep up with competition

HBD works with restaurants across Europe, especially in the UK. Without commitment, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your venture in more detail.
