Burger Lounge San Diego, California Permits

San Diego Permits Approved One-Month Ahead of Schedule

Permit Place, a leading permit expediting firm, recently showcased its San Diego permitting expertise by successfully streamlining permit approvals for Burger Lounge’s 1,561-square-foot restaurant. 

The project involved a major renovation, requiring the acquisition of multiple permits, including Building, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, Fire, and Health.


Development in the City of San Diego is booming, often resulting in elongated permit review times. This can pose a significant challenge to businesses with tight construction deadlines. 

The Burger Lounge permitting project also had an inherent hurdle. Due to project timing, the permit applications were submitted during the holiday season, when plan check staff availability is limited.  

Because of these factors, we forecasted a turnaround time of 4.5 months for permit approvals.

Project Win

Thanks largely to our team’s familiarity with San Diego restaurant permitting and building department’s permit requirements, we managed to secure all necessary permits in just 3.5 months – a whole month ahead of our initial estimate. 

This expedited approval was a monumental win, ensuring that Burger Lounge’s construction schedule remained on track.
