in a 4949sf location how many tables or seat can fit including a bar that sits max 20 at the bar.

In the bar area food will be served and there will also be im guessing possibly at least 5 to 10 tables with half with 4 seats and the rest with 2. I am about 40 to 50 weeks from graduating from the 11th ranked culinary school in the nation. I could use all the information anyone might have to pass on to a beginner in the culinary field. I would really like to find a place with possibly some, or maybe all the equipment would be included or possibly a former bar and grill in the right location would be great, if im lucky, maybe someone out there can point me in the right direction. thanks any info would be app. memphis tennessee 38128 is where im looking at currently. It is an old applebees.

Adam, Congrats! on your upcoming graduation. Contact the local Planning & Zoning Department which has jurisdiction over the location of the restaurant they can give you the seating capacity and parking ratio also keep in mind if this building is located on an outparcel in an Retail Development it is also subject to an operation agreement and restrictive covenants. It would be wise to hire a Commercial Real Estate Broker to represent your interest.

A good rule of thumb is 12 to 18 square feet per seat, with the upper end representing spacious dining. Always check your local codes for the impact the number of seats will have on your operation.
