New at restaurant management? Check out these tips
As a new restaurant owner or manager, there’s a lot of field to cover to properly guide your business to success. Here are a few recommendations on restaurant management to help you start.
Follow restaurant regulations
All safety protocols must be thoroughly met in order to avoid penalties and provide a safe, quality product for your guests. These regulations might change by region. Here you can find the FDA food code by State to help you out. The restaurant business is fast and stressful. These safety protocols are designed to protect people in and out the kitchen and help you deal with unexpected situations.
Plan ahead: exercise active instead of reactive management
Think about the needs of your restaurant such as the inventory, the menu, innovation and personnel beforehand so the decision-making is more efficient and you can tackle issues even before they become one.
Retain your staff
A business in an industry with a turnover as high as this must work hard on retaining their personnel. Employee benefits, pay, good work conditions and environment are key. Ensure that your staff feel valued and comfortable working with you.
Keep your restaurant in good condition
Whether it’s the ‘front of house’ or the ‘back of house’, keeping your restaurant in good condition is crucial for a number of reasons:
- Guests will feel more inclined to visit a restaurant that allows them a pleasant five-senses experience; not just nice food.
- All the appliances in the ‘back of house’ are your employees’ tools to offer quick, quality service, so it’s important to keep them clean and running.
- Think about your restaurant’s expenditures and how they might decrease. For example, by updating your kitchen appliances to be more energy-efficient, your utility bills can be reduced significantly.
- The kitchen’s design and appliances will have a direct impact on your employee’s comfort and productivity. Picture a high-volume restaurant in the summer with a broken down and clogged exhaust system. Obviously this will cause discomfort for everyone in the building, therefore the safety and well-being of your staff must be top priority.
