Factors impacting shop fit-out cost
Several factors can impact the fit-out cost of a shop, such as:
1. Shop size
The larger the shop, the more it will cost to fit-out. You will need to pay more to utilize the available space fully. In some cases, you’ll also have to spend extra for large sets of matching furniture
2. Shop location
Fitting out a shop in certain parts of the city will cost more due to the price of local labor as well as the availability of supplies and materials.
3. Type of shop
You also need to think about the types of products you’re planning to sell. If you’ll be focusing on high-end merchandise, you will need to spend more on the fit-out of your shop to create a suitable impression. Most kebabs operate as takeaway unlike coffee shops you will need tables and chairs.
4. Shopfitting company
The shopfitting company you choose will impact the shop fit-out cost. Do your best to shop around for as many quotes as you can get before committing to a specific company.
5. Shop equipment
The type of equipment you need will impact the shop fit-out cost. For example, a fish and chips shop will need different shop equipment than a restaurant. Some types of businesses are inherently more expensive in their fit-out costs.
6. Shop signage
Your shop signage will impact the shop fit-out cost. A simple sign may cost less than a more complex one. You should also think about expanding your marketing presence at some point.
8. Shop layout
Your shop layout will also impact the shop fit-out cost. A larger shop with a more complex layout will cost more to fit out.
9. Shop lighting
The shop lighting you choose will also impact the shop fit-out cost. LED lighting costs more than conventional fluorescent lighting but uses less energy and lasts longer.
10. Additional shop fit-out costs
Additional costs such as air conditioning or security systems may not be listed here. Be sure to ask your shopfitting company about all potential shop fit-out costs.
