If you separate yourself from your competitors, launching a kosher pizza Aventura restaurant is a great entrepreneurial opportunity. In fact, some estimates have shown that kosher food is an over $3 billion industry in the United States. With special characteristics that include health, meticulous preparation and quality, kosher has become interchangeable with exacting standards both inside and outside of the Jewish community. Below are some ways we were able to get our kosher pizza Aventura restaurant started.
Educated Ourselves on Jewish Tradition
When first starting out in the thought process of getting our new kosher pizza restaurant established, the first thing we did is educated ourselves on kosher guidelines and Jewish tradition. You don’t have to be Jewish to run a successful kosher business. Since kosher foods are healthier and are a better option, we knew we had a competitive edge. People are now beginning to opt for this type of food. In addition to pizza, offer other kosher products as well such as snacks, marinades and oils.
Inspections & Certifications for Kosher Pizza Aventura
Our kosher pizza restaurant when first launched, was subject to multiple inspections and certifications. While some apply to any type of food service establishment, some are more specific to kosher food service operations and restaurants. Although our establishment had to pass all periodic health department inspections, it also had to comply very carefully with kosher food handling and preparation requirements. We were able to network with people in the Jewish community and other kosher food restauranteurs to figure out the best way of meeting kosher certification and compliance. Therefore, you can rest assure we are completely kosher.
Check Out Competitors
As with any type of business, our competitors made great opportunities for us to peek in on the industry and see how this type of establishment was ran. It was worth our time and effort to survey our area. We made friends with people already in the industry and learned a few things from them since they already ran this type of restaurant. We were lucky that they shared some of their trade secrets with us.
Talked to Others in the Industry
While evaluating our competition, we began starting conversations with others who were already in the business. While we did get some local competitors to offer us advice, they were slim pickings and we didn’t get all their juicy details. Therefore, we instead looked outside our local community for kosher pizza restaurant owners who might be more willing to share some wisdom with us since we were not their direct competition. It’s a numbers game; we had to prospect at least 10 restaurant owners to get information from just 1 of them.
Why is this information important to you? Because, now you know the commitment and determination we had to launch one of the best Kosher Pizza Aventura restaurants. You will leave our place with a smile on your face delighted to have enjoyed a hot, all-kosher pizza.
