It happens to all restaurant owners: Ahead of one of the week’s busiest nights, half of your kitchen staff calls in sick, and you’re looking at a disaster. It’s too late to find replacements and you’re existing staff is stretched thin as it is.

The restaurant business is exciting and fulfilling at best, and volatile and stressful at its worse. Juggling menu offerings, maintenance, budgets, and staff is a job for a wizard – and that’s when things go smoothly. When things go awry and a situation gets out of hand, a restaurant owner has to reach deep in his or her bag of tricks to come up with answers.
