Is your hospitality business struggling to create more revenue and profits?
Are you struggling to create a new way of visually promoting your hospitality business? Have you ever heard your employees say "if only our kitchen was laid out better, we could get things done quicker"; "if only our facility had a fresh new look, we could really attract this type of customer"; "if only..."? Have you ever asked these "if only" questions yourself?
Why you need a clear direction for your hospitality business.
If you have a well defined budget and scope of work you want to accomplish in your project, you will be way ahead in your planning process. When you have an efficient facility that is easy for you and your employees to operate and work in, your labor costs will go down and your profitability will increase. When you have a welcome and pleasing ambiance and atmosphere at your hospitality business, your customers and employees appreciate this and will be more productive and patronize your business more often, again raising your profit levels.
Many times hospitality business owners can not come to a consensus on what is important to do first, second, etc.
Many hospitality businesses become stuck and do not move forward with implementation of their design ideas, facility upgrades, or new projects, because they do not have the expertise to do so. These tasks can become overwhelming in the face of running your day to day operation, while at the same time trying to think about dramatic changes to your businesses physical environment.
What can you do to improve your hospitality business?
One of the most important steps you can take to improve or start your hospitality business is to become knowledgeable about the process involved in creating a new facility; remodeling and updating / upgrading an existing facility; acquiring and renovating an existing facility. For a new, remodel, or ownership change in a restaurant facility the #1 thing to do first is establish acomplete and comprehensive menu. The menu drives everthing else from the size of your kitchen to the possible theme for your restaurant. Have a well defined budget for every line item and task of the proposed project, with several contingency areas for unexpectedoccurrences (they always happen)
