It is well known that pizza is one of the symbols of Italian excellence in the world.
For those who appreciate its qualities, it could also be an interesting opportunity to develop a solid and lasting business. The first of the requirements to open a pizzeria is to have a clear and well-defined project, a great willingness to the initiative and the desire to learn all the secrets of this ancient art.
The steps and requirements to open a successful pizzeria
Choosing to open a pizzeria necessarily means dealing with the current market of the city chosen for the project. You must study the pizzerias already active in the area of interest and the proposed formula. Studying competitors in the area does not mean copying the activities of others but getting in line with the market while keeping an eye on the budget to be allocated.
Another step to develop your idea is to decide what to open in relation to the area and the budget available. You can choose if:
- Open a takeaway pizzeria
- Focus on a classic room with table service
- Create a restaurant-pizzeria with other specialities in the menu
It should be borne in mind that each type of pizzeria is correlated to the needs of different spaces and a target of different customers. If the intention is to open a pizzeria, it is essential to have an area suitable to accommodate laboratory and sales counter. It is not necessary to have a large room to accommodate tables.
In case you want to start a traditional pizzeria you have to study the room with the most advantageous rent and consider other costs. Among the costs to be incurred: staff for table service, one or two rooms for customers, a large kitchen and a service area with the classic bar counter and cash desk.
Choosing the type of product to be administered is another basic step to open a pizzeria. The ideal would be to always have the budget for the wood-burning oven closest to the Italian tradition. It should be remembered that before installing a wood-burning oven it is necessary to request a specific inspection of the room by the Fire Brigade.
The alternative in many pizzerias is the choice of a professional electric oven, used for other preparations and cheaper.
