How long does it take to build a restaurant?

All restaurant construction schedules depend on some basic factors, including the size, what equipment, fixtures and furnishings are needed, and the types of finishes to be used in the building. DESCCO will take all of these factors into consideration prior to providing the restaurant owner with a construction schedule.

In general, it can usually take up to 4 months or more to construct a restaurant. A fast-casual restaurant will likely take about 12 weeks to construct and a full-service, casual or even fine-dining restaurant will take 4 months or more to build.

This timeline will also be affected by factors including site specifications, weather conditions, the size of the structure, and the availability of subcontractors and those delivering materials. Any changes made as the project moves along will have an impact on the schedule as well.

It is extremely important to hire a general contractor who is familiar with all of these factors and who has a proven track record of success. DESCCO has constructed many restaurants on time and on budget and is ready to team with you on your restaurant construction project!
