Start a restaurant with a cost-effective PEMB

Are you thinking about starting a restaurant? The pandemic was very hard on restaurants, and we, unfortunately, saw many close in the past two years. Now that we finally see the light at the end of the Covid tunnel, it is the perfect time to help rebuild this industry. We offer a solution to long build lead times and a cost-effective option to getting the ball rolling: a PEMB or Pre-Engineered Metal Building.

New Restaurants in Texas

Building a new restaurant is no simple task, especially after seeing so many restaurants close in the past couple of years. There are many factors to consider like restaurant-style, cuisine, staffing problems, local competition, location, and cost of building something new. While there are a lot of stressors and complications with opening a new restaurant, they can also be very rewarding and profitable. If you have the right idea, location, and vibes, you may have a new hot spot in your neighborhood. And now is the perfect time to have a hot new restaurant.

Location Is Key

Opening any brick-and-mortar business location is often the most important factor. You can sell a low-quality t-shirt, but if you are the only t-shirt salesman near AT&T stadium selling cowboys shirts, you will still sell out on game days.  

This is even more important when it comes to restaurants. If you plan to build a PEMB to open a restaurant, it is essential to secure a lot big enough for the structure itself, outdoor space, and parking, depending on where you are located. 

The more rural you get, the more PEMB-style buildings you will see erected as restaurants. That’s because there are typically larger lots of land available. If you are centrally located, these larger establishments can draw crowds from all over the county if you have good food and a great environment.

What type of establishments work well in a PEMB?

PEMBs are a very versatile building style, and at Leland’s, we offer a very high-quality building with limitless options on how you can customize them. The following types of food and beverage businesses would work well in a PEMB:

  • Brewery 
  • Bakery 
  • Distillery 
  • Coffee Shop / Roaster
  • Bistro
  • Large Party Event Space
  • Caterers
  • Deli
  • Indoor Food Truck Park 
  • Wine Tasting Rooms
  • Food Halls

Why is a Leland’s PEMB the perfect solution for your new Restaurant?

Cheaper Insurance

Because steel is strong, durable, and incombustible, your property insurance costs will usually be reduced with a commercial steel building over something built with wood.

Overall More Economical

Why lease space from a landlord when you can own your PEMB and build equity in your property. Depending on the size and complexity of the design, a steel structure can be significantly cheaper than building a restaurant in a traditional building.

Dependable and Low Maintenance

Steel buildings are not susceptible to rot or insects like a building structurally made from wood. They also hold up to the elements like high winds, snow, rain, and extreme heat much better. Metal buildings are known for being extremely low maintenance, and with a 40-year warranty on the metal we use on our buildings, you can rest assured that your restaurant will look great for decades to come.


Metal buildings can have a very modern impressive look depending on the customization choices you make. We have been seeing lots of bold dark structures coming out of the shop, and we love the bold choice of an all-black structure with tons of windows and rollup doors to provide plenty of natural light. 

These customization options can also give you many options when it comes to the versatility of use. We have seen PEMBs used as multi-use breweries, dancehalls, and restaurants. With the option to make an ample space, open-air areas, multiple-sized rooms and buildings, and large spanning porches. Whatever you dream up, we can help make it a reality.
