Have you ever dreamed of starting your own restaurant, but were daunted by the thought of how difficult it might be to get started?  If you have, you're not alone.

But we don't want you to be intimidated any longer.

Get Started makes the process easier than ever. It's your online guide to opening your own restaurant! The easy-to-follow checklist will help you launch Spokane's next great restaurant, and we'll help take you through all the city, county, state, and federal requirements needed before you open up your doors. Get Started tools can also help you find the perfect location, build a strong business plan, and more.

Small businesses, including restaurants, are vital to Spokane's economy. The City wants to help those who want to invest in Spokane grow our inventory of restaurants and create new jobs.

Get Started's tools are part of the Regulatory Roadmap/Restaurant Partnership between the Washington State Department of Commerce, cities such as Spokane and Spokane Valley, counties, and the restaurant industry.

If opening a restaurant in Spokane is your dream, here's how to Get Started!
