Guide & Template | Pre-Opening Critical Path


Opening a restaurant is an extraordinarily complicated endeavor, filled with time-sensitive and interrelated tasks that rely on the coordinated effort of many internal and external stakeholders to complete successfully. Salt & Roe’s Pre-Opening Critical Path breaks this long-term commitment down into bite-sized pieces. It also...

  • Outlines each step of the pre-opening process 
  • Indicates how the pre-opening process is typically sequenced
  • Provides a centralized place to track assigned tasks and deadlines
  • Offers a complete overview of the status of your project 
  • Reduces overwhelm by making this many-phased process clear and concrete


  • A comprehensive PDF guide that explains what this tool should be used for, exactly how to customize it for your project, when to implement it, and suggestions for other supportive pre-opening resources based on our decades of experience opening successful hospitality businesses
  • An editable, interactive Excel document that will serve as the map to get you from where you are now all the way through a successful opening day
