Consistent Quality of Food:

When you start off successfully, your food is usually good. But it is very easy to become complacent and ignore the most important aspect of your restaurant. There is no restaurant without great food. Even if you are in the business for years, as a restaurant owner, it is your duty to always ensure the quality of the food served in your restaurant is consistently good. Your personal involvement with the food would make your staff alert to deliver and serve quality food consistently.

The right attitude towards customers:

Nobody would like to walk into a restaurant full of dull faces and indifferent responses. It is the job of the restaurant owner to keep your staff pepped up and proactive. You should engage with them daily and stand by them when things go wrong. Your leadership should boost the morale of your staff. Studies show that restaurants are more successful is their owner is proactively involved in the business. This boost in morale reflects of your customers and makes their overall experience at your restaurant a memorable one.

Effective Capitalization for Greater Revenue:

Plan your financials according to the capital that you invest. Generally, 5 years is the average lifetime of a restaurant. After 5 years you either have to sell it or reinvent it all together. When you understand this cycle, it is easier to plan your capital investment. The first two will be to develop your restaurant and make it sustainable. 3 and 4 years should be finding new ways to improve the profits of your business. Finally the 5th year, you should either prepare your restaurant for a successful sale or plan your capital for renovating your restaurant.
