One of the business opportunities that Italians think is easier to implement is to open a restaurant in Australia. This article will serve to highlight the potential of this investment with an eye always attentive to the mistakes to be avoided and the advice to follow.

First of all the positive news: the Australian economy, despite the crisis, still offers good investment opportunities, even in the catering sector. Before deciding to take such an important step you will have to learn about the culture and daily life of this people in order not to make the mistake of setting your project in the wrong way.

How to open a restaurant in Australia

How to open a restaurant in Australia
Only if you have known the real Australian life and culture in depth can you set up a winning idea that will be appreciated and appreciated by this people who will be able to reward you with great familiarity and affection. You will learn to know the tastes and needs of Australian restaurants that are completely different from those you are used to in Italy. You will be confronted with haste, almost unknown in our country, but of the utmost importance among Australians who lack patience with their legs under the table. You will learn to use the ingredients and raw materials to offer a product that is as pleasing to this people as possible.

The competition in this sector is really very high so you will have to propose a valid product to impose yourself on the market. You will be amazed at the number of Australian restaurants and pizzerias located on the streets of the most important Australian cities: if you are not prepared you risk to fail before you even begin.

The first obstacle that you will face is costs and expenses: consider that for the rent of a medium-sized room you will have to budget at least 2500 AUD per month (an average of 600 dollars per week). a lot will depend on the area where you will be. Tourist areas have a large flow of people but they depend a lot on time and seasonality: evaluate all these aspects at the time of writing your project.


To deepen our research on work in Australia we interviewed Vinicio, owner of a great restaurant “The Secret” in Sydney , in the town of Manly. Let’s find out more about the advice on how to become a restaurateur and on work in the hospitality sector.

Let’s start with some advice for those who intend to invest in Australian catering. The first piece of advice is to come to Australia to learn about the system and society of this country , both very far from our Italian culture. To succeed and integrate you need to know and learn: only after doing this can you propose your own ideas that can be successful. Australians are a people of a friendly nature and love the Italian culture and people but they must know how to integrate themselves to become truly part of this culture.

Getting to know Australian culture will also help you learn what the Australian idea about catering is. You will learn, for example, that Australians do not like to wait to eat and that their patience is limited. Even their idea of ​​Italian food is different from what we can imagine: for these reasons it is essential for a future Italian restaurateur to know this land and this culture .

Now let’s talk about the costs. Although, despite the crisis, the Australian economy is still quite solid and gives excellent investment margins, the costs you have to pay are high and you won’t have to make the mistake of underestimating them. A rent of a good sized room on the beach of Manly is around AUD $ 6000 per week, to which you will have to add the costs of managing the premises, salaries and raw materials. Be aware that in recent years even Italian raw materials have become easier to find because the culture of this country has grown from a gastronomic point of view.

The chances of earning are there, a lot will also depend on the area where you decide to open your restaurant: the tourist areas give great access to the public but depend a lot on seasonality and on the period. Creating a quality product will benefit you in fighting the competition that, in Australia, is very high in the catering sector. Italian pizzerias and restaurants are very numerous and you will have to create a solid project to distinguish yourself.
