Restaurant Concept Development and Design

As a part of your restaurant concept development, you need to pick a design that you are going to implement with your space. Not all restaurant concepts are created equally. If you don’t have the right design for your restaurant, you could end up turning away the very customers you want to attract.


Not only will you lose immediate business this way, but it is very expensive to go back and change the flooring, foundation, walls, decorations, and even equipment that all make up a big part of your design concept. This can be demotivating to say the least. Get the design right the first time by leaning on expert assistance.


At PLH, we help people with restaurant concepts every day. It’s simply what we do. Because of that, we are not scattered in various design areas. We can can hone our skilled experts onto your issues so that you end up with a design that establishes the right mood, feeling, and experience you want your customers to have so they keep coming back for more.

Menu Development and Design

There is almost nothing more important in your restaurant than the menu design. Menu design is an integral part to your concept development. A great menu can set the tone immediately and make it easy for people to find and order your best dishes and drinks. A bad menu will leave a bad first impression and could reduce sales. There are two parts to a great menu.


Firstly, the physical design, color, print type, and other visual variables are crucial. No matter what kind of food you serve, you need great visuals. Secondly is the type of food you will serve. We will help you with both of these aspects and more without issue.


When it comes to designing, growing, and analyzing your restaurant business, it can be overwhelming. However, thanks to the tools and resources available to you at PLH, it doesn’t have to be.
