Take some time out to visit restaurants in your area, this is another simple way to look at samples of restaurant floor plans. Carry a notebook to take notes on the floor plan you are reviewing, go buy a cup of coffee, and analyze their floor plan and ask yourself again, what is good and bad about the floor plan and what would you change to maximize sales and minimize losses for their restaurant. In doing this you are getting ideas on what to do and not do to your own restaurant.
Research your current market building costs. Contact a local realtor or custom home builder and discuss the average cost per square foot to build a home of the style you like. Now understand that this will only be an average because they can't possibly guess your personal tastes and the finish materials are a large part of any new home cost.
