So how can a restaurant consultant help your restaurant or take-away business?
In a number of ways...
Whatever stage your business is at, a good consultant will take a look at where you're currently at and compare it to where you'd like to be in the future. By analysing the current gap and breaking it down by area of your business, the formation of simple and clear strategies becomes a lot easier.
And by keeping the terminology and strategies simple, they are much easier for you to actually implement.
Business planning is a systematic process that looks at every aspect of your restaurant operation from the kitchen to front of house management; from your menu to your marketing.
Producing a timeline for implementation is also a crucial part of business planning. You have to have dates set for completion to maintain your focus.
At Taylor Cook, Shaun and Richard combine their respective skills and experience to deliver business plans that deliver the client's required results in achievable timescales.
Opening a New Restaurant, Cafe or Take-away
If you're opening a new business, then it really is the perfect time to seek the help and advice of a consultant.
So many new owners open their restaurants without an understanding of the required systems and processes that make day to day running much easier...
When you set up your restaurant for success from the beginning life is a lot easier and your results are much better.
Hygiene and food management systems are crucially important; kitchen layout and front of house management processes are key to delivering high quality dishes and delighting your customers. So many new restaurants fall short in these areas from day one.
And then there's Marketing...
If you want your restaurant to make money you need customers, and lots of them every time you open your doors. Product positioning, pricing and attracting the right people in to your restaurant are all critical elements of the marketing mix that you need to nail to be successful.
As you can see there are lots of reasons for seeking the help of a restaurant consultancy, but the overriding reason is to improve the profitability of your business. When you get more customers through the door, serve them a great experience and get them telling their friends about your restaurant then you will see success. And at Taylor Cook that's what we're here to help you with!
