Successful Restaurant Design, 2nd Edition

John Wiley & Sons

by Regina S. Baraban, Joseph F. Durocher

February 2001

Successful Restaurant Design, Second Edition approaches the design of restaurants as a process that begins with a solid understanding of interdependent systems. From the main guest entrance to the rear loading dock, this exemplary resource examines how each of these components functions, both on its own terms and in relation to other components. It explores the different ways in which excellent design optimizes both operational efficiency and the pleasure of the dining experience.

Responding to recent market trends, this Second Edition covers the design of theme restaurants, display kitchens, cafeteria foodservice, creative dining concepts, and more. It views restaurant design through the eyes of both customers and management, and it offers helpful insights on restaurant design psychology. - Wiley
