Restaurant Permit Expediting

Let’s Eat!

Permit Place helps all-sized restaurants and large franchises struggling with missed deadlines, limited visibility into permit progress, or who want to optimize processes to open sooner. 

Whether renovating an existing location or building from the ground up, our team can manage and streamline the permit and entitlement process. We’ll get you the approvals needed to hit your important project milestones.

Restaurant Specialization

Restaurant permitting is complicated and often involves multiple applications and departments. Experienced restaurant permit expeditors can help avoid common pitfalls and get approvals on time. 

Local Knowledge

Every city and county has their own permitting process and requirements. Knowing the local permitting process can save weeks. Permit Place has completed more than 30,000 projects nationwide. 

Transparent Process

Lack of visibility into the progress of your permits frustrating and can create issues. Permit Place proactively manages your permits and keeps you up-to-date at all times on the status of your approvals.

Who We’ve Worked With

We’ve helped many of the top restaurant chains streamline the permitting process.

How We Help

Due Diligence & Research

Location is everything, but not if it requires months of entitlement work and thousands of dollars in fees.

A site investigation report will lay out what is allowed and what’s not, along with the timeframes, fees and requirements to open. Make an informed decision about a location before you’re too invested.


If you’re converting a location into a restaurant or plan on serving alcohol, entitlements are in your future.

We can manage and streamline the process of securing zoning changes, variances, and conditional use permits (CUPs).

Construction Permits

Whether a ground-up build or existing structure alterations, construction often requires permits.

We’ll advise you on the local building codes related to architectural, structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and sign regulations, and then oversee the permit submittal process on your behalf.

Health Department Approvals

Before being approved to open, restaurants must comply with state and local health codes, and receive a health permit.

We’ll advise on building materials, surfaces, ventilation systems, and other equipment to make sure your restaurant aligns with relevant codes.

Fire Department Permit Approvals

Fire, Sanitation and Other Departments

From fire systems to grease traps, opening a restaurant often requires approvals from a variety of other departments.

Complete applications and submittal timing is critical. Permit Place will prioritize and coordinate submittals across multiple government agencies, including fire, sanitation, city planning and more.

Liquor Licenses

Do you plan to sell beer, wine or spirits? If so, you will need a liquor license and a local zoning permit approval.

We can help identify the right liquor license for your restaurant, procure it, and clear the way for approval by getting conditional use permits.

Store-Opening Due Diligence

Getting permits approved is just the beginning. Opening on time still requires clearing many jurisdictional hurdles.

Ensure the requirements to open are seamlessly passed from construction to opening teams. Learn more
