Prime locations are not always easy to come by. Therefore,
our highly experienced real estate team will assist you in identifying
and securing prime real estate sites to ensure that you select a location
with the best chance for success. Once potential sites are identified, we
assist in negotiating leases for a variety of issues including price per
square foot, build-out time and allowances, renewal terms, etc.
Once your lease is signed, the clock starts ticking. Every day that your
restaurant is not open is a day that you are not putting money back into
your pocket. To ensure your restaurant opens as soon as possible, we
offer a complete project management service.
Fire of Brazil supports you with a consolidated equipment package that
covers every piece of equipment in your restaurant. We have
carefully refined the package to fit the exact needs of your restaurant.
You will learn the system by training live in an open store and be
assisted by a full opening crew in your new store. You will hit the
ground running when you open your restaurant after you learn how to
develop your sales and marketing plan, setup your back office, and hone
your restaurant management skills.
Manual and Ongoing Support
This manual provides detailed instructions on hiring,
training, and motivating employees, day-to-day operations, and
accounting. The manual is a blueprint for all of our operational systems,
so we require everyone to keep it under their pillows at night. But
support doesn't end once your store is built, your staff trained, and
your business is opened. Each store is assigned a Marketing Consultant
who will assist in the strategic and operational questions that you will
inevitably encounter after your Grand Opening. We're here to motivate,
encourage, and share best practices.
