Hello. i guess its some English/Irish people here that have or know sombody that have startet pub/bar in Poland.

I guess there are some permits for alchol,food ect.. but i can imagine its a problem with all this bars arround in Poland :)

and ofcourse it will be together with some Polish people that can apply for all this.

I know a few ex restaurant/bar owners, it is always the same gripe rents too high and staff not loyal.

Merged: Advice needed for a foreigner wanting to open a restaurant in Warsaw, Poland

I'm looking to open a restaurant in Warsaw and would love to talk with another foreigner that has gone through the process here. I know its going to be a long difficult experience but I'm willing to go through it while learning Polish at the same time to provide all of Warsaw with my amazing food.

also if anyone has ideas on wholesale foods distributers, restaurant equipment suppliers or information about importing goods I'd love to hear your two cents.

I cannot give much information having not ventured into the restaurant business but it may be useful to know:

the type of cuisine you'll be offering
will it be a bistro/café/restaurant etc. (I know you mentioned restaurant but it's a broad category nowadays)
location (Central or outskirts)

Should make for better replies :) Best of luck.

I think that you need someone who has experience in carrying out all the formalities involved in setting up own restaurant in Poland, knows the rules, knows the gastronomy industry, often participated in the gastronomy trade fairs.

If so, email me:

What's the process of starting a restaurant in Warsaw?

I spoke to my wife about starting a restaurant in Poland and she was very discouraging. Saying how expensive it is and that the process of getting licenses is long and frustrating. Does anyone here know about starting a restaurant and the whole process?

Probably not too many people. But you might try do do some search on your own - use Google Chrome with automatic translation to find info for this phrase: jak zacząć restaurację?

First find a location which can have liquor license(As it is very possible that your neighbour has it and you cant get it),then start a company,approach sanepeed with plans and build it with equipment required.Depends on the contractor and how you are on the project,it can be completed in 2/3 months though,liquor might take 6 months too.During Covid you can buy lot of shut down places.An African restaurant is a very good idea in Poland as not many at all there and Poles are very curious.
