Owning and operating a successful restaurant requires attention to many things – and food is just one of them. Your restaurant’s staff is a key component of your success; their job satisfaction should be a top priority. Nonetheless, not everything that passes for absolute truth is accurate and reliable information. In the restaurant industry, myths abound, particularly when it comes to employment.
The restaurant industry has never been easy and it continues to be a challenging environment for those who want to succeed and make it big. Money is always an issue, as are concerns related to a restaurant’s employees. Payroll is one of a restaurant’s biggest ongoing expenses, and at the end of the month, there’s usually very little surplus cash around for “extras.”
Bringing together and hiring the best staff for your restaurant is a top priority before opening. But once your business is booming – customers are streaming in on a regular basis and the feedback is stellar – you have to keep that staff happy and motivated so that you can maintain the high level of excellence that you’ve worked so hard to establish. Nothing in the restaurant industry can be taken for granted; customers are fickle and trends are constantly shifting.
