If you’re a construction company, restaurant supply vendor, or commercial cleaning provider, you play an integral role in helping local restaurants grow. Before your clients can show off their cooking prowess to customers, they need your help. You love to watch your clients thrive, and you’re ready to find new partners for your services—but you’re not sure how.
Are you looking for a place to start when finding new restaurant leads? Here are three helpful methods you can use.
1. Use Zoning Information To Anticipate New Restaurant Construction
New restaurants aren’t built in a day. Sometimes, it takes years to create new spaces for restaurants to expand into, and this journey officially begins with zoning. You can’t just pick a plot of land to build a restaurant and start pouring the foundation—your city has to decide if that location is suitable for food service and approve a zoning application.
A zoning approval means that a new restaurant construction project is in the works, and the development company will be looking for bids shortly. For construction companies, this is an excellent opportunity to start researching the project and preparing a proposal. While product and service providers may have to wait a few years to begin pursuing prospects after learning about a new zoning application, they can still keep these future opportunities on their radar.
If you’re not sure how to find or interpret zoning information, DEC International can help. We contact various sources around Georgia and compile both private and public records related to planning and zoning. Once a week, you receive a report in your inbox summarizing recent activity in the area that helps you find projects, identify commercial construction opportunities, and prepare for construction bids.

2. Rely on Market Intelligence To Find Upcoming Restaurants
When you see a new restaurant opening announced in the news, that most likely means it’s too late to pursue a partnership. To beat out your competition, you need to know about potential opportunities before anyone else does.
Getting this intel requires substantial research. You have to know when businesses change their status, plan an expansion, register their company, and obtain new licenses. Some of this data is publicly available, but you need connections to obtain certain critical information. No amount of in-house research will get you the data that networking provides.
At DEC International, finding information is what we do. We use hundreds of sources, from news outlets to local companies, to learn about future restaurants in Atlanta as soon as the planning process begins. We share that information with your company so you can use it to introduce new leads to your pipeline.
For example, a commercial cleaning company can use our restaurant openings report to contact new sales leads and submit a proposal for a partnership. Additionally, restaurant supply providers can introduce themselves to restaurant managers before they purchase kitchen supplies, appliances, and table settings. Your company could win a restaurant’s business before they even start looking for providers.
3. Become a Lead Database Member
One of the easiest ways to find construction leads or commercial job leads is to purchase access to a lead database. These lists give general contractors, service providers, and other B2B businesses access to information about specific projects or restaurants. Because you don’t have to research, compile, or verify any information, purchasing lead lists from a third-party provider can save you countless hours.
DEC International’s Business Facts Product is a verified list containing hundreds of new restaurant leads in and around Atlanta. Our researchers validate every piece of information included in the list, such as company names, addresses, phone numbers, employee counts, years in business, key contacts, and more. All you have to do is sort the list to display new restaurant leads and reach out to the opportunities you’re interested in. Check out how it works in our video demo.
