Do I need restaurant experience?|

How much does it cost to open a Chopped Leaf?
The projected development cost is between $85,000 and $300,000.
Why is there a wide range of development costs?
The range of development cost is due primarily to the varying site conditions and square footage (can range from a 500 square foot space in a food court to a 1,800 square foot space full size location). Many locations available have previously been used as restaurant sites and have necessary infrastructure in place such as plumbing, electrical service, drop ceilings, etc. This existing infrastructure reduces developement costs.
