Welcome to the Philadelphia Restaurant Consultant Blog

by Stuart Leventhal

Philadelphia represents a challenging environment for new restaurateurs to make it in. Every year we see tons of well-meaning, experienced entrepreneurs shut their doors for good after only being open for less than a year. Don’t let Philadelphia’s unique economic environment eat your restaurant investment alive. If you have a good dining establishment theme, the desire to succeed, a decent background in the basics of the culinary industry and a lot of guts then The Philadelphia Restaurant Arena is your oyster!

Seriously, if you want to make a splash in the Philadelphia Restaurant Market you have to know a few things about Philadelphia and Philadelphians. First off, Philadelphia is made up of hard working, hard playing, mostly working class people. We don’t spend frugally but we don’t count pennies when we do decide to paint the town red. Philadelphians are loyal, as seen by their undying devotion to their sports teams. We stick by our sports heroes no matter what they do! That same devotion is also true towards our favorite dining out and drinking establishments. It’s your job to win us over.

Philly diners will put up with slow service as long as we get the right to sass the chef, hostess, waiters and surrounding customers with a little attitude (all in good fun of course). That’s just part of the scene when going out in Philly. South Philly’s waitresses have had a long time reputation for being perfectly blunt which is so perfectly acceptable to their customers; the very same customers who wouldn’t think of putting up with anything less than exquisite treatment when dining out in one of the nearby tinsel towns.

Yes, we have the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to restaurants in Philadelphia. We also have a fine representation of every worldly type, nationality and style of restaurant in every price range. Needless to say, there is a lot of competition here. If you are opening a new restaurant in Philadelphia, you’ve got your job cut out for you that is for sure. But who ever said doing anything worthwhile was going to be easy.
