Another year has passed us by. It’s time to reflect and make even greater improvements in your restaurant, bar, cafe, or hospitality business. Whether you believe in developing resolutions or not, your mindset for the upcoming year needs to be about “determination”.
Employee reviews: managers dread them as much as employees do.
Despite this aversion, reviews are an integral part of building your team, whether you’re a company of 2 or 20,000.
Perhaps it's been on the back burner for a while or you suddenly had the spark over a fantastic meal at your favorite restaurant, either way, you've decided to open your own restaurant. You've seen plenty of them rise from nothing so surely you can do it too?
But jumping in head first is probably not your best option especially when 23% of restaurants fail in the first year of operation. Not very rosy, is it?
Smooth team communication in restaurants could be the difference between an establishment that thrives and one that fails. This reality exists whether you’re managing the team of a full-service restaurant, a laid-back, family-owned diner, or a busy fast-casual hotspot.
A food trend is defined as a widespread change in food preference and although the impact they have and the time scale it lasts varies, they mustn’t be confused with a ‘fad’ which is a short-term or localized change that doesn’t make a significant impact after the initial period of interest has subsided.
Knowing what trends are coming in will help you determine where you want to take your restaurant in the upcoming year, and what changes you need to make to continue pleasing your customers.
