Opening a Restaurant? Why Not Try a Pole Barn?

If you're reading this blog, chances are you're either already familiar with pole barns or curious about learning more. But whatever your level of expertise, if post frame construction conjures only images of rustic rural barns, hay lofts, and cattle shelters, you've still got a lot to learn. In addition to homes, garages, and retail storefronts, pole barns and post-frame buildings are also becoming increasingly popular as restaurants.

In fact, many of the benefits pole barns offer are specifically advantageous to restauranteurs. For instance, the ease of construction and low cost of materials significantly reduces the notoriously steep overhead required to open a new restaurant.

Pole barns also offer unparalleled versatility in terms of design and aesthetic. Other than quality food, nothing is more important to the success of a restaurant than a unique, appealing atmosphere. Post-frame buildings offer a special opportunity to create a truly unique dining experience. For instance, post-frame buildings don't require load-bearing walls like many traditionally-built structures, opening the possibility of wide open floorplans or layouts unrestricted by building necessities.

A pole barn's versatility extends to the outside of the structure as well, offering nearly endless choices for different facades. Brick, wood, deco, and more can all be applied to a building's exterior to create the brand identity desired.

Consider that many national-known restaurant chains have utilized post-frame buildings in their franchises. Jimmy John's, Subway, and Five Guys all have pole barn locations. The Feed Mill Restaurant in Kentucky, Zuni's House of Pizza, and Suzie's Café in Indiana all use pole barn buildings as well.

All in all, pole barns and other post-frame buildings offer a unique, cost-cutting way to open a restaurant and give it a unique personal touch like nothing else. If you think you're interested, check your local zoning laws and contact the Pole Barn Company at 844-213-0044 to find a kit that's right for you.
