LeaseQ is helping to reverse the popular yet misunderstood myths about the restaurant business.

It doesn’t take a nuclear physicist to see that there is uncertainty in the universe. Restaurant owners know this kind of uncertainty. Although the commonly held myth that “90% of restaurants fail during the first year of operation” has been refuted in recent studies, the reality that a more pedestrian 25%, success rate in the restaurant business is nonetheless an enormous challenge. When the trends are extrapolated over a three-year period, studies now indicate that restaurant failure rates increase to a hefty 60%. Although a far cry from the “90% myth”, restaurant owners certainly have a challenging road ahead when they start their ventures.

The National Restaurant Association estimates that the restaurant sales in 2013 will top $660 billion spread over 980,000 restaurants in the United States. This represents a 4% share of the US gross domestic product and a 3.8% increase over 2012. Although there are billions of dollars being spent in restaurants each year – as the above statistics indicate, success for a restaurant owner is anything but assured. In fact, a great deal of the success of a restaurant is contingent upon these establishments acquiring the commercial kitchen equipment they need to be able to operate efficiently and profitably.

The Nightmare of Restaurant Failure Resolved?

One of the biggest causes of restaurant failure, or at the very least causing a big delay in restaurant success, is not having enough capital to get through the startup phase. Without adequate funding and adequate cash flow, the dream of success for many restaurateurs is far too often turned into a nightmare of failure.

With equipment as one of the largest expenses in starting a restaurant, smart restaurant owners are turning to restaurant equipment leasing in increasing numbers to reduce capital expenditures and save cash. Commercial restaurant equipment leasing now plays a pivotal role when it comes to helping restaurants provide the most effective and efficient kitchen and serving operations. Restaurant and kitchen equipment leasing allows a restaurant owner to have access to a wide array of equipment, as well as being able to upgrade to newer technology as it becomes available. Restaurant equipment leasing also means less cash up front, which frees capital for other projects such as expansion, new menu items, or the hiring of additional staff.

The Many Benefits of Restaurant Equipment Leasing
