Remarkable Improvement Instantly

Do you need to improve the performance and profit of your restaurant quickly without spending a huge amount of capital?

Are you constantly frustrated that your team miss important details?

Do you get tired of repeating yourself?

A Restaurant Employee Handbook is the solution to the above problems and more. It will dramatically improve how your restaurant operates.

If you need to improve the performance of your restaurant quickly and cost effectively, you need a Restaurant Employee Handbook and then ensure your team follow it.

Restaurants a Challenging Business

Restaurants are without a doubt one of the most challenging types of business. Long hours, high staff turnover, constant customer demands and a low success rate. Certainly not for the faint hearted.

Amongst many other things, you need a strong will and passion for your brand to make it a success. Some of the challenges include:

Long hours

You need to be there a lot of the time to make sure it runs efficiently accurately and there is no theft.

Constantly training new staff

Due to the nature of casual and part-time staff there is usually a high staff turnover. Constantly re-training new staff is a full time job.

Keeping customers happy

Not just keeping customers happy but ensuring every part of the experience is more than satisfactory. With such a fickle response to small things and the ability to provide feedback instantly via Google reviews, it is more important than ever to focus on quality and experience.

Absolute consistency

Delivering the same product consistently time and time again is a challenge in itself.

Always Innovating

Constantly innovating for new seasons and new menus.

It’s just a really tough business with a very low success rate. But if you have a passion to push yourself harder than you thought was possible you can make it a success.

How can you work smarter to make it easier?

3 real breakthrough benefits of an Employee Handbook

a Restaurant Employee Handbook will improve many areas in your restaurant. One important benefit is that your team will instantly know what is expected of them.

Many restaurants do not operate efficiently because their team have not been told the specifics including the rules and expected level of service delivery.

You must be specific.

Below are 3 real benefits you will see almost immediately when you prepare and mobilize an Employee Handbook in your restaurant.

1. Sets the benchmark for customer service

As you already know, quality of food, customer service and presentation of the premises are important elements of building a successful restaurant. Your business revolves around customer service including online reviews.

Achieving 5 star reviews for every single customer should be your goal. If it isn’t, your business will struggle to compete and in the end struggle to survive. Set the standards for your team with a reference tool that communicates specific details.

2 .You will be building authentic trust with your customers

A successful restaurant is all built around trust. Being authentic and building trust is key to ensuring repeat customers which in turn, builds your business in all areas.

3. Stops you repeating yourself

A good friend of mine once told me if you don’t want to repeat yourself, don’t have kids or run a business. How true this is. Implementing an employee handbook means you will not have to repeat yourself over and over again. Your team will have a document they can refer to first.

Make sure you always refer to the Employee Handbook when they ask you questions. It must be consistently reviewed and up to date.

Take it seriously and your team will take it seriously.
