24 Fast-Casual Restaurant Design Ideas to Get You Inspired

Posted on September 10, 2021 by Bud Morris

A curated list of fast-casual restaurant design ideas that you will love.

Over the past 2 years, we’ve watched the swift response as restauranteurs shifted from formal dine-in to take-out (for obvious reasons), but a few trends within the industry as a whole were almost overshadowed by the pandemic.

Of course, the number of QSR brands and locations continues to grow at a rapid pace – even if some of the larger brands have pulled back on locations over the past 12 months.

And food trucks did have a moment a few years back.

But as the restaurant industry continues to explore new formats, fast-casual restaurants are making their mark.

After all, customers get high-quality food, a thoughtfully designed atmosphere (the benefits of a traditional dine-in restaurant) and restauranteurs operate with a smaller staff and footprint (the benefits of a QSR or takeout location).

It’s a win-win.

As we’re continually inspired by what others have done around the world, we’ve pulled together a list of the 24 must-see Fast Casual Restaurant Design Ideas that will 100% get you inspired for your next location.
