Running a restaurant is tough work. If it wasn’t, then everyone would be doing it! People don’t know the stresses that come with running an establishment, so owners are always looking to make their operations a little easier and simple.
And that is why we have this post blog all lined up. We have done some research into helping owners with their menus by providing them with four super, easy and effective hacks! Keep reading to find out what they are below:
Thanks to the boom of technology, everything can be electronic and easy now. And if there is one way to make your restaurant operate that little bit better is by going electronic. You can always go old school with the pen and paper, but you are just holding up time, make your employees work harder and making it more draining to get things done. But with a range of new POS restaurant systems available for your workplace, start the hack by making things a little easier for you.
Keep Things Handheld
Now, what do we mean by handheld? Aren’t menus already handheld? We are talking about the rise of iPad menus for restaurants. Your employees can now walk around with a handheld menu, place an order and it gets saved, then sent to the cooking team. Easy, simple and effective. It makes ordering food easier, gets the order out quickly and cuts back on the time. The best menu hack there is!
Keep Only The Things You Need
Yes, it is important to have a firm and set menu. This eliminates any confusion when it comes to your guests ordering something, or your employees inputting their deals. Also, it establishes a firm and logic process for people. Employees will be trained to hit the right buttons or write down the perfect order because they know the meals available. The same logic applies to your guests; it becomes second nature to them that they are able to order what they want.
But Add Adaptability
Just always make sure that you provide some adaptability to your meals. For example, Starbucks electronic menu is so adaptable that employees can enter anything and change anything around. From there, it passes onto the barista where they are able to finish the drink. It is a simple system and clear hack that you have to have if you ever want to provide your customers with the complete service.
