Some time or other, your restaurant may look old and tired and its reputation may be ruined. But what are the reasons for this and how to prevent this? The main reason for all these is a reflection of the ownership. Unfortunately, many enthusiastic owners lose their energy and lust for their business once they realize they've bought a job, not a business. If every owner has to be physically present 7 days a week, then he will stop fussing over the details. It starts with the small details, and then the bigger ones. A restaurant reflects its owner, so, a tired restaurant -- a tired owner. It means your customers are also so tired and then they go somewhere else and find another restaurant, not so old.
That's why, you have to think over this problem and decide whether you want to lose your customer and good reputation. Pay attention to the following tips that may help you to prevent your restaurant from of getting old.
Change Things Up
The first you have to do is to change SOMETHING drastically and immediately. If it is problem for you, then find a person who can do this, hire a professional. New, more energetic staff is what you also need. Start some staff competitions for sales. If you want the things get better, then do this.
Shrink Your Product Line
This may sounds counter productive, but it works in certain circumstances. When a restaurant is floundering, the owner expands the menu. But more selection means more inventories, and it can lead to more spoilage and waste. Unfortunately, you can't be all things to all people and it can lead you to losing.
Consider you menu. Become unique. Do everything better and best in your area. You have to make sure you outdo all your competitors in ONE thing. Taking away choices from your menu will allow you to become a specialist. Be sure, people will pay more for THE BEST rather than a generalist. With this, you will control your expenses tightly. Moreover, it allows you to charge a premium for your BEST product. You will be able to streamline the efficiencies in your operation.
Consider this idea that will give you the vision, and energy, to revitalize your tired restaurant. Good luck!
