Site Investigation Reports

Many factors need to be considered when determining if a chosen location will be a profitable. EMG is expert at helping clients throughout the nation anticipate costs and mitigate risk. We know that understanding the process and timeline for approvals is key to forecasting opening dates and anticipating revenue. Our site investigation reports can include: Site History, Planning and Zoning, Mall/Developer Design Criteria, Liquor License, Signage, Parking, Building Permits, Environmental, Health and Food Permits, Electric, Other Utilities, Time Frames, and Permit and Impact Fees. Reports are based on information obtained from the approving governmental agencies and utility companies; we meet with municipalities to further research feasibility, including zoning, permitting, codes, and community politics.
