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 Center.
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.
