An entrepreneur who is a beginner in this restaurant business hasn’t any idea how to promote his restaurant business before we know it

at first we should know about the benefits of business promoting when an entrepreneur think about restaurant business promoting that time restaurant have not much more customers but when you starting his business promoting campaign that time people are starting to notice his restaurant and also read about his restaurant this way people reach you after

when you increase your promotion more people reach you not only your restaurant place but also another place and this promoting campaign double you customers and increase your sell. Now entrepreneurs think If only good ideas could be found about the restaurant business promoting, here is the

Staff management 

Staff is one of the most important parts of the restaurant business without staff a restaurant can’t run but there is one thing that is if your entrepreneur and if you wanted to hire staff for your restaurant you would be sharper about select them otherwise

if you get useless unqualified or unskilled staff your restaurant would garbage So what should an entrepreneur do? At first, an entrepreneur should advertise that they are hiring staff for the restaurant addon some requirement that he expected from staff when people are coming for your restaurant job you get some small interview from them.

Now you think about which questions you need to ask them for confirming about they are skilled. Here is some question that you ask

  • How many years they have experience in this sector
  • Which restaurant they work before coming here
  • Why they left that restaurant job where they work before
  • Which sector they have skilled in the restaurant as chief or as a waiter or other work

Skilled Manager

A manager is a person who has a responsibility to manage all the sectors in any business and a manager also plays an important role in the restaurant business. Now an entrepreneur can think I can do everything so why the manager is important? that’s wrong

an entrepreneur can’t do everything that a manager can do So let’s talk about the primary and main responsibility of a restaurant manager that is a test of restaurant food quality, before customers starting to enter the restaurant a manager testing food dishes when he has satisfaction and gave permission to serve the food in front of customers

that time food is available in the restaurant this method will consistently maintain the quality of the food. The next thing Where spend how many products, calculation of employees’ pay, how many vegetables are needed for cooking, how much money is needed to buy vegetables, is there any restaurant resource has a problem like a chair. Table, fan, air conditioner and also get information about staff from their leader that

how many staff doing duty and how many are absent and many more things he does Which is not possible for an entrepreneur alone. So that why an entrepreneur needs a manager but a manager must be skilled because without a skilled manager

all those things that we explain up there an unskilled manager can’t possibly do that are reasons when an entrepreneur start a restaurant business he must appoint a minimum of 6-9 years experience management skills person as a manager

Market Manager

Shopping is the most important part of the restaurant business cause without shopping a restaurant food can’t possible to make and without ingredient, a food dishes can’t make So if you’re not going to shopping you can’t buy ingredient or vegetable or other necessary things So you should go to the market and do shopping for the restaurant

Now the thing is an entrepreneur has lot’s of responsibilities he can’t do the shopping for the restaurant and manager also busy with his own responsibility that’s why high-class restaurant hire a person for market manager jobs who have the responsibility to shopping

all the products that a restaurant daily need to run their restaurant business Now the entrepreneur think what is the benefit of hiring market manager cause shopping is not so tuff work but the truth is restaurant shopping not same like other shopping

if you think you call the shopkeeper and he sends all the product or vegetable that you need for the restaurant there is a high possibility to get the bad product or waste vegetable if market manager go to the shop and he will determine by sorting out the verification

which vegetable or product need to buy for the restaurant and he also can save your money, how? When he goes to the market, he will check every shop and buy all the necessary products from the shop

where the quality is good and the price is cheap this way he can save your money Now the question is how to choose a skilled market manager? There is tow way that is

  • Ask him his experience in this sector
  • Ask him the recent market condition 

If he is experienced in this sector he gave you lots of information about shopping when you first time asking him the question and the second question answer he gave 90% correct

Skilled accountants

Accountants this person needs in every business that’s why there is a separated topic about it in the education sector However we talk about restaurant accountants who get the bill from the restaurant customers and also he should have a sharper eye, smart-talking style and many more in this time an entrepreneur means restaurant owner can’t possible to take accountants responsibility, why?

Ignore all the example take only one if the owner is in accountants sit and suddenly owner relative is coming as a customer and ask for the discounts owner have no option to refuse him but if there were accountants he can direct refuse his demand

that’s why we saw popular countries like United States, Canada, Australia, and many country restaurant owners manage their restaurant from outside So the restaurant accountants jobs is monitor cash flow, inventory and income details in this way and accountants gave a statement in restaurant owner about his restaurant profit or losses graph.

Now the question is how to choose skilled accountants, it is tuff to find skilled accountants but if an entrepreneur focus on some points before selecting accountants when he getting interview a candidate that is 

  • Ask him how he monitors cash flow
  • Ask him how to create a list of restaurant inventory 
  • Ask him which is the best way to make income details
  • Ask him what is his personal technic to create a profit or losses graph
  • Ask him about his experience 

When his answer gave you satisfaction and you like his smartness, that means he is a skilled accountant one thing that entrepreneurs can think about is a restaurant accountant salary? It depends on you but the United States restaurants accountants get paid hourly 

Restaurant Waiter 

A waiter is the heart of the restaurant, they can be popular your restaurant or they also can be destroyed if they want, that’s why an entrepreneur can be sharper minded when he was hiring a person for waiter jobs. At first, we know what is the main work of a waiter,

The waiter organized of restaurant table serve the drinks and tell customers about food items and last they get an order from the customers Now the entrepreneur may have questions about why the author said that the waiter is the heart of the restaurant cause

if your restaurant waiter didn’t organize restaurant table Your restaurant decor will look like pale or if he was unprofessional he never serves drinks first or didn’t tell about food items, as a result, your restaurant popularity will decrease.

Now an entrepreneur may have a question that So how to choose a skilled or professional restaurant waiter this things totally depends on staff management person who observes all the restaurant staff also a restaurant waiter now the author will share

5 points that staff management person need to follow for choosing the best restaurant waiter

  • How a restaurant waiter welcome customers
  • How he behaves with the customers?
  • Observe customers loyalty to the restaurant waiter
  • How he was review restaurant food items with customers
  • What customers will say about your restaurant waiter

When staff management person gets all the points correct answer about restaurant waiter person that means that waiter is perfect for the restaurant and he will increase you restaurant popularity 

Customers Expectations

When your restaurant gains some popularity that is the time of success flow for your restaurant business. In this time restaurant will reach customers slowly and grow regular customers base, this regular customer has lots of customers expectations of service from the restaurant

but a huge number of the restaurant didn’t fulfill this thing especially the newbie restaurant they didn’t observe this thing that’s why after some time restaurant business will flop So at first the owner of the restaurant or an entrepreneur need to know about the customer’s expectation

now the author divide 2 types of expected customers that 1st type customers will come to your restaurant regularly and 2nd types customers buy food from your restaurant one day a year so as an owner of the restaurant what should you need to do?

You need to observe 1st types of customers and their expectations otherwise if you select 2nd one your restaurant business going to be face losses. The number of regular customers is low so the restaurant business is less likely to suffer due to their expectations being met Indirectly,

the number of people who do not come to the restaurant regularly is much higher than the number of people who come to the restaurant regularly, so the business may be at a loss to meet the expectations of those who do not come to the restaurant regularly.

Now maybe the entrepreneur think what is the regular customers expectation from the restaurant? There is 2 expectation that most of the regular customers expect that is 

  • Discount
  • Best quality food at a cheap price

Customers Loyalty

In the customer expectation paragraph author will share about regular customers and there is some person who is the loyal customers who believe you trust you promote you and also increase your reputation without any cost.

Let’s learn what is customers loyaltyloyalty is the bond between customers and business owner” when customers bond with your business that time those customers have emotion about your business or products they trust your services or products.

customers loyalty definitionA loyal customer is an unpaid marketer who increases your sales without any cost they never left your product or services at any situation that is the customer’s loyalty” there are lots of studies that show if you have 5% of loyal customers your profit will be an increase 25% to 95% from other business.

However now the restaurant business owner or entrepreneur think that how to gain the loyalty of customers at first you should collect data about the customers like which food they like, which food they order consistently,

what was the accurate time that enters the restaurant and many more after when you analyze all this data you understand about the customer’s emotion, at last, you should try to engage with the customer’s emotion, How? So you have data about customers you should use for engagement like

  • You already know about the customers enter time in the restaurant, you can give him a surprise at the restaurant entrance
  •  You already know about the customer’s favorite food, you can suddenly serve this food on his table and told the customers this food is free of cost today for him 

In this way, you can engage with customers’ emotions and they refer your business, products, or services with his family relatives or others.

Skilled Chief

A chief playing the biggest role in the restaurant business but if the chief is unskilled about cooking that means if he cooked by basic cooking knowledge it’s harming your restaurant business and decrease your restaurant reputation that’s why a skilled chief is important for a restaurant.

There are lots of restaurant owners who hire basics knowledge chiefs to save their money. However, So a beginner restaurant entrepreneur doesn’t have knowledge that how many chiefs they need and how to find a skilled chief, Chiefs number depends on the entrepreneur restaurant business size but

if an entrepreneur wanted to start his restaurant business with high-quality foods he needs a minimum of 4 chiefs, one chief will head and others follow his head’s instruction. A head chef didn’t do anything he gave only instruction to his junior chiefs when they make foods head chief check food tests and gave permission to serve

the food in front of customers but all the chiefs need to skilled  Now the question is how to find the skilled chiefs? Yes difficult to find a skilled chief but you use some technic you can find a skilled chief

What the technic it is? At first, an entrepreneur needs to visits lots of popular restaurants and tested their food items then listing those restaurants name was food he liked and get satisfied with the food test now contact those chief that restaurant food gave him complete satisfaction and ask him

what he gets from the restaurant were he work right now like salary, bonus, and many other benefits then you offer him the best benefits salary bonus or facilities from that restaurant where he works. now when you select to head chief gave him the opportunity to find his junior chief those are comfortable working with him on other hands

if you use another way to find a skilled chief like advertise about it you can’t get a skilled chief to cause an unskilled person also apply for the job

Discount

Discount is the most popular business strategy is at this time. Every entrepreneur wanted to start planning business strategy for making their business successful. However, at first, we know what is a discount? Generally speaking,

When the price of a product sold is kept slightly lower than the fixed price from the buyer it’s called a discount. Now a new entrepreneur thinks that what is the benefit or unbenefit of discount, Well the most valuable benefits of discount that attract customers in your restaurant business and increase your sales

on the other hand if you haven’t any knowledge about the discount strategy you didn’t get any profits from your extra salse So you should know some basics strategy about discount like you can’t run you discount all the time as an example restaurant are fully loaded in holidays if you run a discount offer that time your cash flow will down.

if an entrepreneur can properly use the discount strategy he must build a strong restaurant business now another valuable benefit that is discount increase, your customers loyalty and we already discuss this up there However

When you gave discount your customers with high-quality food that time customers get satisfaction from your restaurant business and these things customers make loyal. When you gain the maximum numbers of loyal customers then you can stop your discount campaign, mind that

discount is the fastest way to grow your restaurant business and you must use a restaurant marketing strategy for the perfect discount campaign

Owners Responsibility

Responsibility is the most important for every entrepreneur but if an entrepreneur hasn’t any knowledge of responsibility he couldn’t get success in any business and the restaurant business is also like that if you didn’t find out your restaurant problem it never be solved.

Now the entrepreneur has a question that I appointed staff everywhere so why I should take responsibility? At this time it’s difficult to find an honest restaurant staff who take care of your business like you the staff will always think about his own profit from your business

So if restaurant owner has to fulfill his responsibilities in a strict manner then he expected profits from the restaurant business. There are many restaurant entrepreneurs who do not keep track of their business and come to the restaurant every month or week to collect dividends. Is this thing is correct?

The answer is No it is not, as this restaurant entrepreneur didn’t run their business long term So let’s know some required restaurant owner responsibility 

  • Spend lots of time in your restaurant business
  • Gave value to your Senior staff, Manager, or accountants
  • Keep an eye always your food quality
  • No rocker discount should be given for cleanliness
  • Don’t behave like rubbish with your restaurant staff
  • Try to give satisfaction to all your staff

When a restaurant entrepreneur follows these points perfectly that time he has too much possibility to succeed or increase his business profit. Maybe the last point lots of entrepreneurs didn’t get that how he gave satisfaction to all his staff? The answer is rewarded,

when you gave reward your staff for your staff especial work or gave bonus on holidays that time your staff will satisfy from you and they work harder for your restaurant business.

Always Updated

Restaurant customers always expect something new, something testy, or something different that’s why the restaurant business always needs to be updated. Backdated food decreases your restaurant reputation customers will give you complaints about your restaurant.

However, day by day restaurant business competition going to be hard and popular if an entrepreneur wants to beat them he must be updated his restaurant business. At first, he needs to focus on his restaurant decoration, there was a time restaurant decoration doesn’t affect on restaurant business but this updated time customer is loyal they don’t just go to restaurants to eat,

they go to relieve their fatigue that’s why they find the best environment and the restaurant environment created by high-quality decoration so a restaurant entrepreneur must be updated his restaurant decoration. The second thing is updated food quality this thing is much more important cause when your served food for your repeated customers regular quality

after sometime customers getting bored those foods that’s why they are much more possible to lose your repeated customers reasons is they restaurant customers always find variation in food or food quality So if you wanted to hold the customer tightly in your restaurant you must be updated your food quality.

The last thing is manpower, strong manpower gave customers satisfaction by their services, in restaurant manpower means restaurant waiter, skilled chief or all other staff especially the restaurant waiter,
