It’s time to
quit doing what you have always done and look at things a little differently.
Employees are hard to find. If you do
not have enough employees many restaurants either reduce hours of operation or
are closing one or two days a week. That’s does not work in the old business model
nor does it work long term in many new business models according to Steven
Johnson Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma,
WA based Foodservice Solutions®.
Regular readers of this blog know that new
research says delinquencies across all small businesses are at an 18-month high
because of deteriorating business conditions and landlords raising their fees.
“About 46% of restaurants lacked the
funds to pay their August rents, an 8-point jump in delinquencies from two
months earlier, according to the latest survey of small businesses by Alignable Research
If you own a chain restaurant or any
restaurant you cannot keep doing what you have always done you must try and
find a new normal, according to Johnson.
Paying rent comes before profits and if you can’t pay the rent, you cannot
pay yourself. Stop doing what you have always done. Try looking forward rather than backward.
