“At some point you have to say, ‘I’m not going to make a bad business decision to get my dream space.’”
Today our guest is Roberta Economidis, co-founder and partner of Georgopoulos & Economidis, a boutique business law firm based in San Francisco, with a specialty in the hospitality industry. Roberta has helped restaurants and hospitality businesses throughout California and the US with everything from corporate structure, to lease negotiations, private equity offerings, licensing, permitting, and much more.
The focus of our conversation today is the restaurant lease, a VERY important topic for anyone looking to open a restaurant, whether it’s their first or 51st. Signing a favorable lease can make the difference between a successful or unsuccessful restaurant business.
Roberta helps demystify the restaurant lease, covering topics like:
- What the typical lease negotiation process looks like
- The purpose of an LOI
- Breaking down different types of restaurant leases
- Important clauses to consider, and
- Tips for how to negotiate favorable lease terms
Get your notepad ready, cuz the information you’re about to hear would normally cost a pretty penny in legal fees!
Please enjoy my chat about restaurant leases with Roberta Economidis.
