A New Year gives you the opportunity to revive and refresh in all areas of your restaurant to attract new diners and keep things fresh for your loyal guests.
As you evaluate each facet of your operation, walk through with OUTSIDE eyes - as if you're looking at the restaurant for the first time. I've been told that this is a major strength of mine - to go into any restaurant and see things that owners, operators, chefs and even servers cannot.
When I look at a restaurant with my years of experience as a very successful restaurant owner, I ask myself: Is the building and decor memorable? Does it help make the restaurant money? Does it further the vision? Does it create buzz? Are guests Instagramming immediately? Are guests planning their next reservation before they leave? Does the paint need to be touched up? How do the bathrooms smell? Is there an updated brag wall? Do plants need to be replaced? Is it time to order new uniforms? Are all your lightbulbs working? And on... and on...
I challenge everyone to resolve to take a fresh look at their restaurants. When is the last time you walked in the front door, not the employee rear entrance? When is the last time you changed your drive-by?
