Restaurant owners with lagging sales and a smaller customer base
- Are your dinner rushes getting smaller?
- Do you see your profits dwindling?
- Are you wasting food with a giant menu?
- Are your customers just not coming back? Many times for unknown reasons or no fault of your own.
You’ve tried to ride out the slump but things just aren’t getting any better. You’ve tried menu changes with no luck.
You’ve tried the usual solutions different vendors, remodeling, specials, signs and more with little results. In most cases, you are too tangled up with your day-to-day operations to focus on making little changes that can impact your restaurant.
If you are in the industry, you have seen or know about the “Kitchen Nightmares” TV show. The nightmare show exposes the very worst restaurants on the brink of collapse. Your restaurant is probably not all that bad. The show is built on drama and Chef Ramsey’s in-your-face personality.
