The checklist helps you identify weaknesses or oversights in your restaurant business plan and connects you with a Small Business case manager who can assist you.

Checklist contents include site zoning considerations, occupancy considerations and permit tips.

You can call a Small Business case manager at (415) 554 – 6134 to receive advice and guidance on launching your local restaurant business.
