Between being forced to close and adjusting to restricted dining capacity, local restaurants have been placed in crisis from the pandemic. Many are still doing a majority of their business through drive through or curb side service. With employee issues, product cost increases, new sanitation measures and very cautious guests, where do restaurants go from here and succeed under the new normal?
This one-hour program takes a hard look at how the independent restaurant operator has faced this crisis and redesigned processes for greater efficiency. It will address the complexity of menu offerings and re-examining management structure and staff responsibilities in order to maximize effectiveness.
The program will also demonstrate how to adjust financial models to maintain success during this period of lower revenue expectations and review marketing strategies to repair and maintain guest confidence levels in dining out again.
